As the owner of a garage and auto body shop, you have a great number of responsibilities. The second that a customer hands over his or her keys, you can be held liable for something that is or is not done. You could be held liable for theft, damage and more. To ensure that you are ready for the worst case scenario, it is important that you are equipped with the proper coverage. This is where our experts at Wolpert Insurance come into the picture.
At Wolpert Insurance, we can provide your shop with comprehensive and affordable garage insurance policies. Policies such as general liability and crime and theft coverage may protect your liability, in the event that a customer comes at your business with an issue or worse, a lawsuit.
This week, our agency also has some advice to extend. The following three points may be your top three responsibilities as an auto body shop owner.
#1: Maintain car condition. If you operate a garage repair shop, It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to keep the cars that come into your shop in the SAME CONDITION as they came in. Any damages, dents or accidents that are caused by you or your employees will result in a problem with the customer and could land your shop into financial trouble without the right coverage.
#2: Lock up to avoid theft. Be sure to properly lock up your shop at the end of every single day. If not, your customers could lose their vehicle or possessions in a case of break-in and theft. You could be held liable for this if you are not careful.
#3: Have insurance in place. Your customers will feel much better knowing that your business is properly insured in the event of an accident or mishap. Having solid coverage will not only keep your business safe, but it will come off as professional and trustworthy to your clients. This may improve your business and reputation in the long run! Make it a point to focus on coverage.
