Policy Types We Recommend in Santa Barbara
Similar to a standard General Liability Insurance policy, a Garage Liability Insurance Policy covers an automotive service & repair shop against medical costs and lawsuits that may arise if there is an injury while someone is on the premises. Auto repair shops unfortunately produce more severe injuries than a typical office building, therefore special policies and provisions are in place to best provide your Santa Barbara Auto Repair Shop the most protection available.
Santa Barbara Keepers helps provide protection for your customers' cars while they are under your care at your Auto Service & Repair shop. Liability coverage protects your business from lawsuits and medical costs, Garage Keepers covers customer's property. Typically there are options for how much protection you prefer – from limited protection that only coverages damage you are legally responsible for or full protection weather you are legally at fault or not.
Like most Santa Barbara Garages, you or your employees more than likely test drive customers' vehicles once repairs are complete to verify that they are working optimally. If that is so, your business definitely requires a Santa Barbara Commercial Auto policy that protects you or your employee as well as the customers' care in the event that an accident during a test drive does occur. Commercial auto policies cover protection if your employees run out to get parts or supplies, go on a lunch run or get into an accident while operating a customers's vehicle.
A Santa Barbara Business Property Insurance Policy can protect your automotive service & repair shop against damages to your property from covered perils such as accidents, storms, theft, vandalism, earthquake or fire. Property coverage extends beyond just the building itself, it includes inventory, furniture, fencing and outdoor signage.
Many people also know Santa Barbara Business Interruption Insurance as "Loss of Income Insurance" – by either name, it can help keep your business afloat in the event the unexpected occurs. In the unlikely event something terrible does happen and you are no longer able to operate – you will still need to pay taxes, suppliers, rent/mortgage, employee wages and any other bills you might have. On top of that, you'll probably need income as well to continue to survive. Business Interruption insurance can even help you pay for a temporary location to get your business back up and running as fast as possible.
Since your Auto Repair Shop is in Santa Barbara, you are legally required to provide worker's compensation insurance in order to provide benefits in the event an employee gets injured on the job. Workman's Comp helps cover medical care & rehabilitation costs as well as lost wages until the employee is well enough to come back to work. If you currently have a Work Comp policy that you think you are paying too much for, let us know and we'd love to shop it around with our many A+ rated carriers.
