All used automobile dealerships are required to carry a Surety Bond in the amount of $15,000 listing the Department of Revenue as the obligee and the dealership as the principle. In addition, Mississippi requires car dealers to carry at minimum $75,000 in Garage Liability. Higher Garage Liability limits are recommended.
A basic Garage Liability Policy covers damage to other peoples property or bodily injury that you are held legally liable. This coverage is like commercial general liability, but coverage extents to both the auto and the dealer lot. An additional coverage maybe added to the policy commonly referred to as Dealer Open Lot (DOL) or Dealer Physical Damage. DOL provides physical damage coverage to the dealership inventory in the event the car becomes damage from an accident, theft or weather related. The coverage is split, much like a personal auto policy, into collision and comprehensive.Please note…Mississippi is a coastal state and coverage for weather related claims maybe excluded due to our high exposure to wind.
Dealer Open Lot comes in two different forms, Reporting and Non-Reporting. Reporting form requires the dealership to submit monthly inventory reports to the carrier every month in order for the insurance company to have accurate inventory numbers. More common is Non-Reporting Form which is based on the maximum anticipated inventory value.
