Things to Remember...

  • Traders and General Auto Insurance Company is actually Traders & General Insurance Company
  • The only auto insurance that this company provides is for collectible vehicles and group coverage for transportation companies
  • Their products are available in all 50 states; although in some cases they are underwritten by one of Traders & General’s sister companies with a license to sell in those states

Traders and General Auto Insurance Company is actually Traders & General Insurance Company, an underwriter for OneBeacon Insurance Group, Ltd.

Our OneBeacon Auto Insurance review shows OneBeacon is a subsidiary of White Mountains Insurance Group, and neither company is a general auto insurance company.

Traders & General does not have their own website, as their products are those that are offered by OneBeacon. As such, the information provided in this article will be relevant to OneBeacon as well as Traders & General.

Traders & General Insurance Products

The products underwritten by Traders & General include:

  • Marine Insurance
  • Technology Insurance
  • Property and Inland Marine Insurance
  • Tuition Refund Insurance
  • Entertainment Insurance
  • Collectible Vehicle & Wooden Boat Insurance
  • Environmental Insurance
  • Accident Group Insurance
  • Government Risk Insurance
  • Professional Liability Insurance
  • Excess Property Insurance

The only auto insurance that this company provides is for collectible vehicles and group coverage for transportation companies such as cab companies, trucking companies, and delivery companies.

The collectible vehicle coverage is not coverage for driving on the road. Instead, this insurance is meant to protect the vehicle based on its collectible value.

Basically, homeowners insurance doesn’t cover collectible vehicles, and this type of policy would protect against the theft or damage of the vehicle due to something happening to your home.

Traders & General Insurance Claims

In order to make a claim, you will have to visit the site specific to the insurance that you have purchased.

For example, if you purchase Marine Insurance, then you will be directed to a site specifically for Marine Insurance.

On the website, you will not find a claims link. Instead, you must follow the link for applications and documents. There you will find all of the forms you need to file a claim.

However, there are no instructions on the website regarding what to do with that information once you have completed it.

In all likelihood, you will find a fax number on the forms that you are using. If not, you can call the company directly or you can contact the agent that sold you your products and have the agent help you file your claim.

In general, you will find that Traders & General and all of its associated companies are known for paying their claims in a timely fashion.

Traders & General Insurance Quotes

You won’t find any quote tools or quote options on the OneBeacon website. The reason for this is that the insurance the company sells is commercial and it has to do risk assessments before providing a quote. Because of this, you will have to see an agent to get a quote.

If you are an average person looking for auto insurance for your vehicle, then you don’t need to go through all of this trouble. Enter your zip code below, and you will be comparing auto insurance quotes in just a few moments!
