We are Road Runner, the original motor trade insurance specialists

Hi, we’re Road Runner and we’ve been placing insurance for independent motor traders for over 25 years. In fact, we were one of the very first brokers to specialise in this area. Over the years we’ve built up a vast bank of experience – so we can offer you expert Road Risks, Liability and Premises insurance that could help save you money.

Our team members take pride in getting to know you and your business, so we can find you a flexible and competitive policy that’s built around your exact needs, not filled with pointless extras.

From roadside rescue, to bodyshop repairs, to second-hand sales – we understand all the moving parts of the motor trade. That’s why our cover is tuned to your specific needs, because we know there’s no one-size-fits-all policy in this business.

So whether you’re full-time or part-time, our cover is designed to support you – whichever part of the trade you work in.

Why Choose Road Runner?

Welcome to Spanner’s Garage

Hi there, I’m Spanners, Road Runner’s new ‘Branch Manager’!

I like to reward all of our customers by inviting them to enter loads of competitions. I’ve got UberEats vouchers, football shirts, and tickets for events to give away – there’s even a £500 tool voucher stashed in the den ready to be won. On occasion, you may be lucky enough to grab a toy of me, but they are very rare, so you’ll have to be lucky.

As soon as you become a customer, you’ll get access to all of my great competitions. Oh, and we’ve got an incredible Loyalty Scheme coming very soon.

Don’t forget to follow us on our socials.
