Auto dealers and garages have unique exposures, and vary from company to company. What isn’t unique is the need to manage those risks aggressively, on all fronts. From premise, product and people exposures, to contractual risks, care, custody and control exposures and everything in between, it’s critical to protecting assets and long term sustainability.
Auto Rental companies also have unique risks, namely the exposure of having numerous vehicles on the roads driven by other parties. How are you prequalifying your renters? Are you leaving yourself open to being pulled into a lawsuit for negligence in renting the vehicle to that party? Do you renters provide evidence they have insurance? Are you confirming that?
For 23 years we’ve been working with auto dealers, car rental companies, garage and repair facilities, body shops, custom fabrication installers, and auto accessory companies across the State of Alaska. The risk management needs of each, while sharing many exposures and needs, is still unique and demands a risk management approach and robust insurance program.
