What does auto electrician insurance cover?

Auto electrician insurance policies vary depending on the type of cover you may need. Most traders should consider road risk insurance, public liability cover, and protection for tools they require. However, the exact details of your policy are up to you — and your insurer.

At a minimum, you’ll most likely need road risks insurance so that you’re insured to drive customers’ vehicles when working on them, especially if you offer a collection, delivery or test drive service.

In most cases, you can choose from three levels of road risks insurance:

  • Third-party only — insures against damage caused to third-party vehicles if at fault.
  • Third-party fire and theft — provides cover to third-party vehicles and protection against fire and theft of those you own.
  • Comprehensive — provides cover for damage caused to third-party or vehicles you own, alongside added protection for windscreen, loss of keys, breakdown, and more.

Auto electrician insurance policies can also include:

  • Public liability - if a member of the public gets hurt on-site, public liability insurance covers the cost of the compensation.
  • Employers’ liability - workplace accidents happen. Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement that safeguards your business against employee injury claims.
  • Business premises - if your premises are damaged, garage buildings cover insures you up to the cost of a complete rebuild.
  • Tools in transit – Transporting tools in your trading vehicle? Protect your equipment from theft and damage while being driven around, loaded and unloaded.
  • Vehicles in transit – if you’re transporting customers’ vehicles for assessment or repairs, you must have insurance against damage and third-party liability.
  • Commercial vehicle – if you use a vehicle for business reasons, commercial vehicle insurance covers it against damage, theft and third-party liability.
  • Engineering inspection - connects you with qualified engineers who’ll conduct checks on your business’s equipment and keep your garage running smoothly.
  • Defective workmanship - provides specific cover for proven claims of professional negligence in relation to supply or fitting of vehicle parts, which may result in third party injury or property damage.
  • Business interruption - protects your business against damage that renders your premise inoperable or unoccupiable, such as fire or flooding.
