Dealer/Garage Liability Insurance

As an auto dealer, you know the obvious risks: the value of your business sits vulnerable, on display in showrooms and open lots all day and all night. But does your auto dealers insurance policy also consider the liability inherent in doing business, having employees, and the exposure that comes from of hundreds of people visiting your lot each month? Not to mention, the very real possibility one of them is just out for a quick injury or omission claim against you? Not to mention claims arising from buyers who give (accidentally, or on purpose) false information to secure a vehicle, which can be just as devastating to your business as a theft or damage to your inventory. Since every business is unique.  SIA considers all aspects of your particular business to create a comprehensive business policy. You can trust us to make sure you have the right insurance coverage designed to match the individual aspects of your business.

DMV Dealer Bonds

Dealers in the car business for ten years or more remember bonds skyrocketing during the financial crisis. At first they stayed high. Then they came down slowly. Well bonds prices are better than they’ve ever been. Have you shopped your bond lately?

Workers Comp Insurance

If you have employees, it’s your job to keep them safe at work. If an employee gets in an accident while on a test drive, your workers’ compensation insurance will help pay for their medical expenses. Workers’ compensation insurance is a mandatory policy required in most states, including California. If you have even one employee, you must buy it or you could face severe penalties. Period. The idea behind the coverage is straightforward and simple. It’s a no-fault insurance program.

For the employee – it covers lost wages and medical treatment resulting from an injury that took place while at work.

For the employer – Any business owner with even one employee needs it! It’s the law.

Workers’ compensation premiums are determined by:

  • Your type of business
  • How many employees you have
  • Your claim history
