General Liability

General Liability

Bought by most oil change station owners
General liability can provide coverage for some accidents that could happen at your oil change station. General liability is intended to provide coverage for accidental injury or damage to other people or their property. For example, if a customer slips on spilled oil in your shop and breaks their arm, general liability could help pay for medical fees. Note that this is an example and may not reflect the terms of your specific policy. It’s always a good idea to refer to the coverage details in your own policy.
General Liability can help you pay for:
Medical payments
Property damage
Legal fees and judgments

For businesses that use rented or employee-owned vehicles for work

Hired And Non-owned Auto can help you pay for:
You need to use rental or employee-owned vehicles
Someone’s property is damaged by your rental or employee-owned vehicle

Frequently asked questions about business insurance

Here are some of the most common questions we get about insurance for oil change businesses. If you don’t find the answers you need here, our licensed, U.S.-based insurance advisors are standing by to help via online chat or phone.

How does business insurance protect oil change station owners?

Our oil change station insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. You’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

A pan of dirty oil accidentally gets tipped into a customer’s trunk, ruining the interior. General liability coverage will help you pay for detailing and repair costs.

Customer injuries

A customer trips over a tool left in the waiting area and badly twists an ankle. General liability helps to keep your business protected if someone other than an employee gets hurt.

Damage to vehicles at your shop

An oil drain falls over and dents the side panel of a customer’s car. Our optional garagekeepers coverage (which can be included with general liability) can help pay for repairs to the customer’s car.

Professional mistakes

A customer claims you over-tightened the oil cap and now it leaks. Faulty work insurance could help to defend you against the claim.

Damage to customers’ cars off the premises

Your employee takes a customer’s car for a test drive and accidently rear-ends another car on the road. Hired & non-owned auto (HNOA) coverage can be added to a commercial auto policy for liability coverage when you or your employees drive a customer’s vehicle.

Damage to your own property

A fire breaks out in your shop and destroys your tools and inventory. Commercial property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe, fire or vandalism.
