A crucial business component

As an automobile dealer, many of the risks of your business are obvious — you have valuable assets sitting out in a showroom and on open lots, day and night. But, your exposure as a business owner goes far beyond that.

You need an insurance policy that also considers the liability inherent in doing business, having employees, and the exposure that comes from of hundreds of people visiting your lot each month.

Taking everything into account

Not to mention claims arising from buyers who give (accidentally, or on purpose) false information to secure a vehicle, which can be just as devastating to your business as a theft or damage to your inventory.

Since every dealership is unique, Graham considers all aspects of risk specific to your business to create a comprehensive business policy. You can trust us to make sure you have the right insurance coverage designed to match the individual needs of your business.

What does the policy cover?

A comprehensive auto dealer insurance policy can include coverage such as:


Covers damage to autos and property left by customers

Property damage
& bodily injury

Covers possible damage from lot and garage-related operations


Covering damage to garage-owned autos on the lot or stored

Owned autos

Providing protection for claims arising out of ownership and disagreements

Hired autos

Protect vehicles you or your employee rent or borrow for business purposes

Newly acquired autos

Protect new or additional autos acquired during the policy period.


Cover your partners, employees or members of households using vehicles for your business or personal affairs

Temporary substitute autos

Protect your owned autos in case they are disabled and you must use a temporary vehicle

Optional Coverage

Defective Product and Faulty Work Coverage to protect the products and work performed by your shop should the work or parts result in an accident that causes property damage to your customer’s vehicle (broadened garage liability coverage)

Customer Autos Actual Loss Sustained to cover the amount of the actual loss of a customer’s vehicle, regardless of the dollar limit.

You can save even more by writing this coverage in combination with a business property policy and provide a complete protection package for your business.
