What Is Auto Service and Repair Shop Insurance?

Your shop is your livelihood, and you can help protect that with Auto Service and Repair Shop insurance. This insurance can help cover you when the unexpected happens to you or your employees while on the job and helps protect your business from the financial costs of accidents, like loss of income or damaged property.

Custom-Built Auto Repair Shop Coverages

American Family’s auto service and repair shop program is powered by coverages that provide custom-built protection for the needs of garage keepers who repair cars and trucks. The program is not intended for businesses that include automobile dealership operations. Take a look at these coverages:*

Garagekeepers coverage

Provides physical damage coverage for your customers’ vehicles while in your care, custody or control. Customize by choosing coverage that pays only for damages you’re legally liable for or coverage that pays for damages to your customers’ vehicles regardless of your legal liability.

Garage liability coverage

Provides liability coverage for accidents arising from your garage operations resulting in bodily injury or property damage, including accidents that occur while test driving your customers’ vehicles.

Building and business personal property

Provides coverage for your buildings and business personal property such as tools and computers.

Business income and extra expense

Provides coverage for actual loss of business income if your operations have to temporarily shut down due to a covered loss, and any extra expenses incurred to keep you business up and running after a covered loss.

Important business documentation coverage

Especially in today's electronic society, businesses generate mountains of critical documents. Losing them could be damaging to your business. Coverages like Accounts Receivable, Electronic Data and Valuable Papers can help repair, replace or restore your electronic and printed business records.
