Used Car Protection

Keeping your mind at rest during ownership

Stay protected with SW Car Supermarket

If your vehicle is written off or stolen then your motor insurer will normally only pay out the current market value of the vehicle. In most cases this could leave a financial shortfall that you will need to deal with.

  • How much will my insurer pay out if my vehicle is written off/stolen?
    Even if you have a comprehensive motor insurance policy it’s very likely that they will only pay out the current market value of your vehicle - it’s also very likely that this will be less than you paid for it or less than any outstanding finance you have on it.
  • What are the financial implications to me?
    If you wanted to buy a like-for-like replacement vehicle then you may be left having to fund the difference yourself or even having to consider down-grading to a more affordable replacement option. Similarly, you could be left having to pay out and the amount required to settle your finance agreement.
  • How can I protect myself against financial loss?
    This is where Combined GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) can help. If your vehicle is written off or stolen and declared a total loss by your motor insurer, Combined GAP will cover the difference between the vehicles market value and the net invoice price you paid for it or any outstanding finance (whichever greater). The current market value is defined as either your main motor insurer pay out or, in some cases, the retail transacted value shown in Glass’s Guide.

MOT Insurance

Protecting you against unexpected expense from MOT failure

Your new vehicle will come with an MOT and although vehicle reliability has improved over the years, our experience shows that many vehicles may still fail their annual MOT test.

Protect yourself against your car failing and take out an insurance policy to help recover the costs of a failed MOT.

Find out more about our MOT Insurance
  • Why do I need MOT insurance?
    A large number of vehicles fail their MOT test which can lead to unexpected and unbudgeted expense.

    The MOT test is a specific assessment of your vehicle to ensure it meets the minimum environmental and road safety standards - it is not a test of its general mechanical condition.
  • How can I protect yourself against this expense?
    MOT Insurance will cover the repair/or replacement of items listed in the ‘components covered’ section of your Terms & Conditions and cited on your ‘Notification of refusal to issue an MOT certificate’ (VT30).
  • A few things to be aware of
    1:If you make a claim, you will only pay the cost of any items not covered by the policy.
    2:Once you have taken out the insurance, you will be asked to service your vehicle in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
    3:Your vehicle will only be covered provided it meets the eligibility criteria as specified at the commencement date of your policy. Terms & Conditions will be supplied upon request.
    4:Your vehicle must have at least 3 months MOT cover remaining at the start of the policy.
