General liability coverage

Risk Factors

Regardless of industry, all businesses face risks that should be covered by insurance. The most common and comprehensive type of policy business owners invest in is general liability insurance (or CGL). If your business is sued, you could end up facing fees totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more).

Solution

CGL insurance covers some risks: Bodily injury, Property damage, Medical payments, Legal Defense and judgment, and Personal and advertising injury. Having an acceptable CGL policy to help compensate for these damages is the only way to prevent this type of event from devastating your business.

Commercial property coverage

Risk Factors

The value of your commercial property is substantial. If an unexpected disaster occurs, such as a major storm or fire, and that disaster destroys some or all of your automobiles, it may be enough to put you out of business.

Solution

As the owner of a car dealership, you should carry commercial property insurance with limits high enough to account for the high value of your inventory.

Workers’ Compensation coverage

Risk Factors

Carrying workers’ comp insurance is essential to being an employer, and most states legally require it.

Solution

Not only does carrying this insurance keep you in legal compliance, but it also ensures that your employees can get the medical care they need for any job-related injuries. In addition, your workers’ comp policy will cover medical care and lost wages if employees cannot work due to their injuries.

Commercial umbrella coverage

Risk Factors

Commercial umbrella insurance sits on top of a general liability insurance policy, picking up where the general liability policy's limits left off.

Solution

In a situation where your general liability policy limits are exceeded, such as losing a significant lawsuit, you can depend on the umbrella policy to take over and pay the damages until the limits of the umbrella policy are reached.

Business interruption coverage

Risk Factors

If a significant event causes your business to shut down after a tornado or other major disaster, you may end up with nothing.

Solution

Business interruption insurance would help to cover your business expenses and potential lost income during downtime.

Automobile Dealer garage insurance

Nearly every state in the country requires motor vehicle dealers to carry dealer insurance. Before you may receive a dealer license, many states want documentation of your dealer insurance policy. You will most likely need to purchase a "Dealer Garage Insurance Policy." Your dealer garage insurance policy will offer protection as you transport your automobiles to and from the auctions. Additionally, it will safeguard your clients when they test drive your cars and you if someone breaks their leg on your lot. The coverage is known as a garage policy because it covers your "garage" and the surrounding surroundings. You may have a policy on another business you own, but you must have a dealer garage insurance policy that covers customers driving your demos.

Some states only require you to hold a basic liability dealer garage insurance policy, and others will require you to carry a minimum amount of comprehensive coverage. Check with your state dealer license bureau to ensure you meet your state minimum requirements.
