What is Garagekeepers Coverage?

While discussing liability coverage above, we noted that there was no coverage for the customer’s vehicles. That is where Garagekeepers’ coverage will come in. This is a very important coverage to have, not only to protect your customers, but also your reputation. Garagekeepers coverage is purchased at a set amount, for example, the maximum value of items you may have in your care, custody, and control at any one time is $75,000. Therefore, you decide to purchase Garagekeepers coverage at $75,000 for comprehensive and collision losses. The next decision you must make is between Direct and Legal Liability. This difference is very important from a coverage and cost standpoint.


Direct Liability is then broken down into two options, Direct Primary and Direct Excess.

  1. Direct Primary. This will be the most comprehensive, as well as the costliest coverage. Direct Primary coverage will provide coverage for the vehicles in the care, custody, and control of the insured. Direct Primary coverage will pay out regardless of any negligence and will start paying at dollar one. An example of coverage would be an insured’s vehicle damaged by hail. There is no negligence, the insured cannot control the weather, yet since the vehicle was on his property his policy will pay for the damages.
  2. Direct Excess. This is less expensive than Direct Primary, and will provide mid-level coverage. If there is no negligence on the part of the insured, then the customer’s insurance will pay first. If their policy limits are exceeded, or if they do not have the coverage to begin with, then the garagekeepers policy will pay.


Garagekeepers Legal Liability is the least expensive garagekeepers option. This coverage will only pay for damages as a result of negligence on the part of the insured. An example would be the insured forgetting to lock the gate protecting the lot, resulting in vandalism of the vehicle.
