Frequently Asked Questions

Why do New Car Dealers need insurance?

Most new car dealers think that purchasing insurance is not necessary because the cars are new. What could go wrong? A lot, even for new car dealers. And when something goes wrong with the new car your customer purchased, make sure that you have insurance, to protect your business from the risks. Otherwise, you are responsible for all expenses out of pocket.

What risks do New Car Dealers face?

New car dealers face the same risks as all other businesses. Below are some examples:

  • The car your customer bought is faulty, causing an accident due to the defect. While the manufacturer is responsible for the loss, you are responsible for selling the product to the customer.
  • Your employee is hit by a car while driving outside of the showroom. As the employer, you are responsible for medical expenses, rehabilitation, and lost wages for the employee.
  • Your dealership is robbed. Money is stolen and cars are vandalized. You are responsible for all losses.

How much does New Car Dealer Insurance cost?

Most of the time, insurance companies will determine the cost based on the size of your business, the number of employees you have and the coverage required.
