Garage Liability

Dealers garage liability coverage Includes auto liability & premises liability.

Auto liability is provided to customers who are test driving the dealerships vehicles. This coverage would also cover employees who test drive with the consumer, pickup parts, run errands and driving to take care of other dealership operational duties.

Premises liability insures your dealership against customers getting hurt on your physical premises.

Both of the premiums are determined by a few factors; the county of the physical dealership, liability limits, radius of dealership operations, total number of dealership employees and the exact number of owners/shareholders that going to be furnished with vehicle demos.
