What is Garage Liability Insurance?

It is important to realize that Dealerships need a specialized policy that is unique to that line of business. A typical General Liability policy doesn’t cover for losses associated with vehicle loss. So if you’re out test driving a vehicle and you get in an accident a General Liability policy would not cover the loss, BUT a Garage Liability policy would.
Garage Liability policies are designed to meet the needs of Dealerships and Repair Shops. They cover for slip and falls on the lot and for losses associated with vehicles.

Louisiana Dealership Insurance Requirements

Louisiana requires any person or business that sells 5 or more vehicles in a 12 month period to file as a dealership and must carry insurance and a bond. In addition, the dealership must have an office, permanent sign visible from the nearest street and a telephone number listed on the business name.

  • Must maintain a minimum limit of Garage Liability Insurance of $55,000
  • Surety Bond in the amount of $50,000

How much is Garage Liability Insurance in Louisiana?

There are several factors that contribute to the cost such as number of employees, years in business and additional coverage options. The cost of the insurance can range as low as $1,200 per year for a single owner location and go as high as several thousands of dollars for larger dealerships.

How much is the Louisiana Auto Dealer Bond?

The purpose behind the Surety Bond, AKA Auto Dealer Bond, is to ensure that the buyer of the vehicle will receive compensation for damages if the auto dealer fails to comply with Louisiana Dealership Laws.

Louisiana Motor Vehicle Dealer Surety Bond is a two-year term bond that expires on December 31st every other year and costs can range from $425 for owners that have an excellent credit score to $4,000 for less than perfect credit scores.

Just switched to this agency after previous agency closed. The online reviews led me here. Can confirm this was the right choice. Dealt with Courtney on my garage liability coverage and was an absolute pleasure. Everyone is courteous and prompt. Was amazed at how fast they took care of this coverage for me, especially during this short holiday week. Definitely recommend Barbee Jackson to anyone out there looking for great customer service!
