eBay And Norwich Union Help Buyers Drive Away

Free 7 day Insurance Offer for Motorists

eBayMotors.co.uk, has teamed up with Norwich Union to provide free car insurance for cars purchased on the site.

This unique offer is the first of its kind and now makes it even easier for people to buy and sell cars at eBayMotors.co.uk.

Norwich Union, the UK's largest insurer, is offering seven days free comprehensive car insurance* to people who've successfully bid for a car on eBayMotors.co.uk. For people selling a car on eBayMotors.co.uk, the offer is available on their next car.

The winning bidder simply calls Norwich Union Direct once they've agreed the sale and collection date and the insurer will email a cover note so they can collect the vehicle safely. Norwich Union Direct also provides a no obligation annual insurance quote.

Clare Gilmartin from eBay Motors said: “A car is sold every two minutes on eBayMotors.co.uk and we're constantly looking for ways to improve the buying and selling process and provide added peace of mind for the millions of people who head to the site in search of a new car.

“We know people are willing to travel up and down the country for the right vehicle at the right price. Teaming up with Norwich Union Direct to offer free insurance for seven days means people can drive away in their new vehicle, knowing they're covered for most eventualities should anything happen to them on the journey home.”

Norwich Union's seven day insurance product with eBay Motors includes offers:

  • Seven days free fully comprehensive car insurance
  • Unlimited legal liability for death or injury to any person
  • Up to £5 million legal liability cover for damage to other people's property
  • Medical expenses, personal injury and legal protection

Mark Godfrey from Norwich Union Direct added: “Buying a new car can sometimes be a stressful experience and once you've bought the car it can be a hassle shopping around for the best insurance quote. Our 7 day free insurance offer enables you to receive a cover note for your new seven day comprehensive insurance, usually within the hour, speeding up the process of getting the vehicle taxed and making the most of your new car.”

* Subject to the standard Norwich Union Direct terms and conditions and in circumstances where Norwich Union Direct cannot offer an annual insurance quotation to the customer (either because they or their vehicle does not qualify for the insurance), the 7 days' free car insurance cover will be declined. The offer is not available on motorcycles, vans or kit cars. Visit eBayMotors.co.uk for details.
