New Mexico Dealership Insurance

New Mexico dealerships are required to carry two forms of insurance in order to be licensed to do business.

What is the difference between Dealer Physical Damage and Garage Keepers?

Dealer Physical Damage, also referred to as Dealer Open Lot (DOL), provides coverage against physical loss, such as an accident or weather related event, to vehicles owned by the auto dealership. This coverage type is most common for dealerships without a service department and only sell vehicles. Garage Keepers Insurance protects your customers vehicles that you are in your care, custody and control. This coverage is most common with repair shops and dealerships with a repair facility.

Dealership Insurance – Furnished versus Non-Furnished Auto

A dealership has the option to opt for a Furnished or Non-Furnished Auto. Furnished auto means the person listed on the policy can use the dealerships inventory for both business and personal use. This means the listed driver can take any of the dealerships inventory and drive it home, to the store, on vacation, just like having a personal automobile. They can use the auto for business use also, to-and-from the auction, repair shops, and test drives.

What’s great about having a Furnished Auto is you do not need to maintain personal auto insurance if the vehicle you are driving is owned by the dealership.

Having a Furnished Auto does cost more than a Non-Furnished Auto, because of the higher exposure to a loss. The costs vary depending on the driver information and state insurance laws.

Courtney was super helpful and efficient with helping me get business insurance. She had a policy done and ready to go the next day! Would recommend to anyone.

I appreciate the service, assistance, and prompt responses from Dana Barbee. I operate a salvage yard in Florida and getting insurance is always difficult due to the greater risk factor involved. However, Dana was able to make it happen for me. I highly recommend Barbee Jackson Insurance for all of your insurance needs.
