Automobile trade insurance

0 min read


Did you know that an automobile trade insurance policy is required by law for the following types of auto businesses:

  • Automobile Dealers
  • Repair Shops
  • Service Stations & Gas Bars
  • Parking Lot, Valet Service & Storage

Basically, if you have custody or control of a customer’s vehicle, you must have insurance in place!

If you own an Auto Repair Shop, Auto Service Station and Gas Bar, or a Car Wash, then the Automobile Trade package from Royal and SunAlliance (RSA) is a great place to start for insurance. RSA understands the distinct risks associated with the auto industry, and as such, has put together a package that can be tailored to cover your needs. At Mitch Insurance Brokers, our focus is to provide you with comprehensive coverage at an affordable price. With that in mind, the brokers at Mitch believe that this package will provide you with great overall coverage for your business. If your revenue is less than $5 million, and you own less than 10 locations, give Mitch a call today for a quote!

Highlights of the automobile trade package:

  • Garage Liability Extension
  • Hoist Collision Extension
  • Sign Floater
  • Identity Theft Expense
  • Employee Benefits Errors and Omissions

Another bonus of the RSA Auto Trade Package is that you earn Air Miles for having your policy with them. Be rewarded while giving yourself the peace of mind knowing that you are properly insured.
