What Is Product Insurance And What Does It Cover?
Product Liability, also known as Sales and Service Indemnity, is a type of insurance that covers you for any incidents caused after the sale or service of a vehicle, or after you have carried out work on a customer’s car, bike or van that you could have otherwise been liable for. Despite every effort of inspection and intentions for quality workmanship, there is still a chance that something could go wrong; a part you fit may be faulty or defective, or it may be fitted incorrectly which then causes damage to the vehicle incurring further expense. This policy will help cover any claims of injury or damage made against you after the vehicle has left your premises.
Product Liability Insurance Explained
Regardless of how vigilant or meticulous you are, there will always be a chance for an accident to happen. When you are in the business of repairing or selling vehicles, the implications of such accidents become much greater. If anything were to happen whilst your customer was on the road, it could lead to serious damage, injury or even loss of life. Sales & Service Indemnity insurance is intended to protect you against such claims.
Imagine if a customer’s brakes were to fail after having them repaired by your company. A successful claim of this nature could reach hundreds of thousands of pounds depending on the outcome of the incident. Similarly, if you were selling a vehicle, although every intention is good and every vehicle is checked, you cannot account for everything. For example, if someone purchases a vehicle from you and the next day the steering locks up and they have an accident, you would be liable and as such could face a heavy penalty. At least with Product Liability insurance, your protection is extended beyond your business activities, to cover the work carried out and any parts fitted.
