Garden Trailer Insurance from just £90!

Do I need separate insurance for my garden trailer?

If you use a trailer to move garden materials from one place to another, then getting it covered with the appropriate insurance makes good sense.

Most comprehensive car and van insurance policies only cover trailers for third party liability. It means you would be covered for any injury to a third party or damage to their property, but not if your garden trailer was damaged in an accident that was your fault. You would also not be covered for theft or fire damage.

Garden trailer insurance will solve these problems – and the best deals with Sterling are available over the phone.
