As an auto dealer, you know the obvious risks: the value of your business sits vulnerable, on display in showrooms and open lots all day and all night.
But does your auto dealers insurance policy also consider the liability inherent in doing business, having employees, and the exposure that comes from of hundreds of people visiting your lot each month? Not to mention, the very real possibility one of them is just out for a quick injury or omission claim against you?
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 business is unique. Forest Agency considers all aspects of your particular business to create a comprehensive business policy. You can trust us to make sure you you have the right insurance coverage designed to match the individual aspects of your business.
