Typical Auto Repair Shop Coverages in Florida
Protection for your auto repair shop in case of an accident, injury, or mistake. This coverage is often helpful if a mechanic or technician makes a mistake while servicing a customer’s vehicle, or an on-site accident occurs that results in damage and / or injury of a customer or employee. This is often the most important insurance coverage for an auto repair shop.
Non-Owned Auto Coverage
This protects your customers’ vehicles as they are being serviced and entrusted to your care, often referred to as “non-owned auto insurance.” In addition to coverage while a vehicle is being worked on, this offers protection while an employee test drives a vehicle before or after the vehicle has been serviced, or when an employee is involved in an auto accident when driving a personal or company car while driving on behalf of your auto repair shop.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
With so many moving parts, heavy machines and vehicles, complicated workflows and physical strain, workers’ compensation is a necessity in an auto repair shop’s insurance coverage. It provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees, mechanics and technicians in the event of an accident or injury resulting from their employment. Often, these benefits are available in a tradeoff, in which the employee gives up the right to sue his or her employer for potential negligence.
Auto repair shops often require a lot of space (such as an operations warehouse and equipment room), expensive tools and equipment, and additional housing or parking lots for customers’ vehicles as they are being serviced. Property coverage protects against theft, disastrous events such as fires, as well as varied, optional coverage such as business income insurance and equipment breakdown coverage.
Working along with property coverage, crime coverage protects against wrongdoing you may suffer from an employee or third party, including theft of sensitive data such as customer information, shop equipment, shop income and finances, or robbery.
