Default Motor Trade Insurance

Anyone on here have a motor trade policy to cover them on cages and bikes? Had 4 different insurance policies at one stage last year between cages and bikes so looking to get one trade policy and be done with it. Broker in First Ireland reckoned a trade policy for bikes was a no go?

I recently put bikes on my policy, the usual trade laws apply with riding but I can only have one bike IN MY NAME at one time. But of a strange one but that's the only affordable way my broker could do it.

Who's your broker? Any bother with them asking for VAT numbers or registration with revenue?

I have mine for years and if you don't hold a policy already I don't think it's possible to get one without the likes of proof of building and Vat etc...

Tough enough to get the bikes covered, most of the time its only third party only too which isnt worth a shite. Powers in Limerick are decent, if you've a trade policy for over three years it makes it a lot easier

You don't need either a vat number or premises but the start asking if you'd have proof of trade (receipts for parts etc.) in case of audit or serious incident.
The policy I got from powers was road risk only on bikes so basically worthless to me so I dropped it.

Had a trade policy for years with John Power, cars vans and bikes but.........

When I cancelled the policy my no claims was not accepted for the motorcycle side of things by any broker/company as I never had a bike specific policy. Just be careful
