Why choose MyFirstUK for scrap metal insurance?
As a scrap metal merchant or dealer, trying to find an insurance policy that covers your business and interests correctly can be a daunting task particularly in specialist area such as scrap metal. We provide specialist scrap metal insurance from a wide range of industry specialists and tailor them to your specific requirements.
Our scrap dealer insurance is available for certified, scrap metal dealers holding a current scrap metal dealer licence.
However, we can look at new ventures and casual scrap / recycling collectors; and risks will be considered on their own merit. We can typically cover vehicles at 3.5 T, but we can be flexible and arrange cover for 7.5 T or scrap lorries. We will also cover cage trucks and double cab tippers, as well as vehicle transporters and trailers.
How can I get cheap scrap metal insurance?
To lower the cost of your scrap metal insurance, think about:
- Paying for the full year upfront in order to avoid extra fees and interest charges.
- Only insuring a few named drivers on commercial vehicle. Drivers that hold clean licences and are over the age of 25 are also cheaper to insure.
- Keeping vehicles in a locked garage overnight, if at all possible.
- Increasing your voluntary excess.
