UK insurer Norwich Union, part of Aviva, has enhanced its motor trade proposition by adding new features and services.

In conjunction with a revamped policy wording that includes as standard many of the previously request only risk options, a range of additional services will be provided by Norwich Union’s RAC operation, the insurer says.

These options include: six months roadside assistance with each vehicle sold, with the option to upgrade the cover to include at home and recovery to anywhere in the UK; free HPI vehicle ID and provenance checks for a limited period; discounted CAP/glass’s guide valuations for three months; and the unique HPI seven day drive-away facility providing immediate free seven day comprehensive insurance to customers.

The new policy has undergone a major overhaul, incorporating many new covers as well as offering a range of value adding services from RAC. We are sure that brokers and their motor trade clients will find that this is a much improved offering, says Barry Hogg, motor trade manager for Norwich Union.

Other enhancements include engineering breakdown, explosion and collapse as an integral part of the standard property damage and business interruption cover. In addition, the road risks territorial limits have been extended to cover Europe, with free motor legal protection, and automatic cover for replacement vehicle locks and keys up to a limit of GBP50,000 in any one period.

New cover options include computers, employee dishonesty, professional indemnity, commercial legal protection and business travel, as well as a simplified engineering inspection process for small to medium sized motor traders.
