What is Auto Dealer Insurance?

Auto dealer insurance, also called dealership insurance or “dealer open lot insurance”, is designed to protect auto dealerships and their inventory. It is a specialized form of auto insurance, offering similar coverage options like collision, comprehensive, and liability. These options protect vehicles within the lot, and they serve as coverage for property damage or injury to a third-party while on the lot. Unlike standard auto insurance, dealership insurance may have a number of other coverage options more tailored to the unique needs of dealerships:

  • Protection for the dealership’s property, such as the dealership building, office, and equipment as well as car parts and tools
  • Protection for business operations, like business interruption, loss of income or employee dishonesty
  • Protection for unexpected events like natural disasters Specific coverage options and limits can vary according to the insurance carrier and policy. Contact Castle Rock Insurance today with your auto dealer insurance inquiries.
