Trailers are an incredibly useful piece of equipment for car and van owners to have, they are easy to use and are versatile in their function. But if you are confused as to what insurance policy your trailer falls under, you’re not alone. Home policy providers, car insurance providers, and specialist providers may all claim to cover your trailer, but these policies are limited in what they entitle you to and don’t always cover what you need them to. Making sure you have adequate and suitable insurance with the right provider like Adrian Flux is important in the event of an incident.
Adrian Flux has tailored insurance policies for a variety of trailers covering horse trailers, boat trailers, flat beds and tent trailers, but if you just use an ordinary trailer for general purpose, we have the policy for you!

If you are a new owner of a trailer, there are important safety guidelines you need to be aware of. We’ve highlighted a few of the following laws to make you aware of the type of things you need to know:
The weight of the trailer and contents must be within the vehicles towing ability and not more than 85% of the car’s kerb weight if the trailer has brakes, or 50% if it doesn’t.
Maximum trailer width in the UK and EU is 2.55m
Indicators, lights and brakes (where fitted) must work and you must display the correct number plate for the towing vehicle on your trailer
Depending on when you passed your driving test (before or after 01.01.97), the towing allowance will differ
Speed limits whilst towing on UK roads are 60mph for motorways and dual carriageways and 50mph on single carriageway roads. You must not use the outside lane of a motorway
