When you run an auto repair service business, you have a special relationship with your customer. For some people it’s just a car, for others, it’s a prized position. Regardless of how they feel about their car, they trust that you’ll take care of it, and make sure it’s safe.
As much as you would like to think that everything always goes as planned. Things can go wrong from time-to-time. A service technician could make a mistake while repairing a vehicle. Your tools or equipment could be damaged or stolen, or you could have an accident with your customer’s car while on a test drive. When something unexpected happens, a good garage keepers insurance policy could help you remedy the situation.
