About Tradex Insurance Company

With Tradex’s founders having started writing motor trade insurance in 1967, Tradex was formed first as an underwriting agency in 1992 before becoming an insurance company in 1995. Tradex specialises in insurance for businesses in all sectors of the motor trade, taxi and specialist commercial motor markets. With our headquarters in the Docklands in London, and a network of offices and agents that sell our policies - we have representation and serve our policyholders throughout every part of the British Isles.

Over time, Tradex has built up a wide portfolio of motor trade business - from the one-man band and those motor traders trading from home on a part-time basis to large concerns including specialist mechanics, large dealerships, workshops and body shops.

Tradex has also developed into one of the major Public and Private hire Insurers in the UK. Through the Westminster network (recently sold to Clegg Gifford) we still continue to provide taxi and black cab policyholders with extensive policies that have additional extras and levels of cover included that most others charge for as extras.   

Unusual cover also became another area of expertise; ice cream vans, funfairs, get you home services, specialist commercial - if it needed cover on the road, Tradex would consider it, we are known to be flexible insurers of the unique and proud to be so!

 The founders of our company also continue our close association with our sister company, Clegg Gifford Co Ltd, a Lloyd’s broker, established in 1967 which holds a binding authority to write motor trade & taxi business with us.

 Tradex welcomes enquiries from brokers and direct customers alike.

Tradex Brokers can obtain facilities for both individual risks and scheme business much of which is manually underwritten - a skill which is the cornerstone of the company’s success. This means that we are more likely to be able to quote for you - from a motor dealer to ice cream salesman to a car jockey, we are not fazed by the unusual and are always keen to provide new facilities to brokers.
