(CGL) Commercial General LiabilityThe type of insurance you need is called "Commercial General Liability" also sometimes referred to as "Contractors Liability Insurance"

As an Sole Proprietor providing a repair service you are considered to be engaged in a commercial activity. This type of repair usually comes as a service or repair contract, hence the contractor reference

Good luck

AnswerA local Insurance Broker is the best way to find business insurance. They are not a captive agent like Farmers, State Farm and Allstate. They have the ability to shop the market to get you the best rate.

You need a garage keepers liability policy which will include coverage for the motorcycles in your possession, liability while testing them, liability for the premesis and your work, etc. If you have employees you will also need work comp insurance.

The term "Liability" means anything you are libal for. The best way to put it is the liability section of an insurance policy covers other people's bodies and stuff, in the event you harm either of those things. The medical and car repair bills for anyone else involved in an accident you caused

No. Physical Damage coverage to your own vehicle would be covered in this instance if you purchased the coverage, but liability only would not repair the damages.

No - they are not exempt - there really is no requirement for General Liability insurance such as there is in some states for auto insurance. To my knowledge there are no general laws that require any company to carry General Liability insurance. There may be local or state laws that require proof of insurance to access privileges, such as being licensed to conduct business in a town or state. Many entities require proof of coverage such as customers, lienholders, mortgagees, licensing entities (city, state, business, professional licenses), and many more. I do not believe there is a blanket "law" or requirement that applies to all business entities. In practical fact, it is the stakeholders in and around any business that "require" insurance to make the risk of doing business with the entity one that is somewhat controlled. Auto warranty companies may be only selling a promise to provide a service through another entity - the dealer or repair shop - and therefor try to advise an unhappy customer that they don't need insurance, i.e. go see the entity that was to provide the maintenance/repair. That does not mean the warranty company does not have insurance; most probably they carry both General Liability and Professional Liability. It is most likely they carry a VERY high deductible and REINSURE the rest and are probably part of a Risk Retention Group which further reinsures the exposure.

No, you can spend that check anyway you like. It's your money. The insurance company doesn't care if you repair your car or not. You could decide you will take the train to work, it is your business.

It would be impossible for someone to answer this question based on the information provided. There are many factors that go into determining your premium. You are better off just calling up your provider of choice and getting a quote.

I'm thinking of starting a home repair business. Where do I find the legal requirements, such as business license or certifications, for the state of Florida? How much insurance should I carry?

No Fault insurance ONLY deals with medical injuries to you if you are driving. No Fault has nothing to do with property damage liability. If you hit a parked car, then your Property Damage Liability coverage would pay to repair the parked car and your own Collision coverage (if you have's optional) would pay to repair your car.

Repair it make a planter out of it sell it for scrap Without collision insurance you are out of luck unless the accident was the other guys fault, in which case his insurance will pay you for the value of your car and collect the remains.

In automobile insurance, collision coverage provides for repairing a vehicle when it is damaged due to the fault of the insured. Liability insurance provides for cost of repair of the OTHER vehicle if you damaged it.

Business insurance, generally speaking, helps protect a business from any severe losses. If something bad happened to the business, such as damage to the property or a natural disaster, business insurance may help the company re-coup the damages. There are some advantages and disadvantages to business insurance. A clear advantage is if there is any significant damage to the property the business is in, the business insurance can cover most of the damages. However, like any insurance policy, business insurance has a monthly premium and is usually high to cover most of the typical damages seen in a building or experienced during a disaster. In a bad economic downturn, it could be advantageous to not invest in business insurance and, if the day ever occurs, the business can use its own funds to repair damaged infrastructure. However, many aspects of business insurance can cover expenses that are not foreseen. For example, business insurance can cover the damages a business must pay for workman's comp. Business insurance can also repair expensive capital at a business, such as large industrial machines. It is also important to keep in mind that personal worker insurance can be part of a business insurance package. This includes not just health benefits, but insurance coverage over any other benefits the business wants to provide graciously for its workers. The best strategy then is to invest in a business insurance agent. These professionals are well trained and specialize in knowing the current rates and premiums for specific business insurance policies. For example, the business insurance agent may only suggest that the business invest in workman's compensation insurance, especially if its a labor intensive company. If the business is more technical and has large capital investments, then different forms of equipment insurance could be bought. The agent is mainly looking out for the business' best interests, especially since the premiums could high. Also, it may be easier to find an insurance policy that bundles all these aspects together, such as business insurance that includes liabilities, commercial property, and worker's insurance. Business insurance is one of the surest ways of protecting a company and its assets. Although it is an investment per month, business insurance can save a company thousands or millions of dollars if the worst case scenarios happened.

The Insurance Company is required to indemnify you for your loss. It's your business if you decide to repair the vehicle or use the money in some other way. So, No, you don't have to repair the car and Yes, you can keep the money.
