What is car repairs and servicing insurance?

As with any job, particularly one involving manual labour, there’s always a risk that something could go wrong. A lot of the time, it’s out of your control, which is why it’s so important to make sure you’re covered with the correct car repairs and servicing insurance. Otherwise, you may find yourself spending a lot more money as a result – this may include fines for not having the correct insurance or even legal fees if someone makes a claim against your business.

Do you need car repairs and servicing insurance

These days, finding and fixing vehicle faults is more technical than ever – with complex diagnostic equipment often needed to pinpoint the problem. And as vehicles become more and more sophisticated, so has the repair and servicing trade.

Certain types of insurance that fall under the car servicing insurance umbrella are a legal requirement, while others help make life easier when something goes wrong.

Public liability insurance is recommended if you have customers regularly visiting your site, while Employers’ Liability insurance is required by law as soon as you employ staff.

Premises insurance protects assets such as tools, vehicles and the premises itself. It can also be used to help cover third-party claims made against you.

Road Risks insurance is needed if you ever take the wheel of your customers’ vehicles or drive your own while on the job.

Getting the right car repairs and servicing insurance for your business’s needs is key in protecting you and your staff from risk, meaning you can crack on without any stress.

Have you considered the following for car repairs and servicing insurance?

Making sure you’re covered against all forms of risk, no matter how big or how small, is key when looking into car servicing insurance. Consider whether you’ve given thought to the following:

  • Insuring your customers’ vehicles so you can road test them
  • The risk of a claim against you for faulty workmanship
  • The possibility of an employee having an accident at work
  • A customer having an accident while they’re on your premises
  • The value of the tools and equipment you keep at your premises

You may need to consider other technical elements when it comes to choosing your car repair and servicing insurance:

  • Vehicle cosmetic repairs insurance
  • Auto repair insurance for older or high mileage vehicles
