If you are the owner or operator of a mechanic shop you will want to look into purchasing a garage keepers policy. Garage keeper’s on your CA general liability insurance coverage is designed to protect you from financial responsibility if a customer’s vehicle in your control or possession is damaged. There are two types of garage keeper’s coverage available to you; direct primary and legal liability coverage. Legal liability only applies in the event you are found responsible for the loss due to negligence. This can be anything from leaving a shop door unlocked to an employee crashing a vehicle. If there was no fault on your part it may be hard to get your loss covered. Direct primary covers the damages whether you were found to be negligent or not. It is always recommended that you purchase direct primary coverage to be better protected, regardless of the reason for the claim.

You may also want to invest in personal property insurance with your mechanic insurance. Most equipment in a shop is very costly and in the event of a loss you do not want to be left paying for it out of pocket.

This does not typically apply to equipment that has deteriorated over time form regular use or wear and tear. Be sure you know how much the equipment in your shop is worth; being underinsured is a bad place to find yourself once it is too late. You will want to be sure you have enough coverage to replace your equipment and tools if you are involved in a total loss. Additionally, you will want to inquire about any reimbursement polices your company may have. Find out if it will be replacement cost or fair market value; replacement costs will cover the cost of replacing any lost equipment while fair market value is the current value of the item minus devaluation form time and use. Obviously it is always better to have replacement cost coverage.
