About You

The ‘motor trade’ covers a vast range of activities. If you work in one of the following areas, why not read about how we can help you in more detail….

Road Runner is committed to helping as many different types of motor trader as possible though. So even if you don’t fit the definition of some of the more common types of trader, we can probably still help you save money on your motor trade road risks, liability and premises insurance.
