Protecting Your Vehicle Service Operation

Operating a Vehicle Service business brings the potential for many types of losses. Your business may be burglarized or vandalized. A customer may be injured while in your store or an employee may damage a customer's vehicle. While not every loss is preventable, there are many precautions you can take to protect yourself, your employees and your customers from a loss. The following guidelines can help reduce the number and severity of any accidents you might experience in operating your business. As an added benefit, your customers will appreciate the extra precautions you are taking to protect them and their vehicles while in your shop. Having the reputation as an operator of a clean, safe, well-run repair shop encourages the prospects of additional business.

Crime and Vandalism

Here are some tips to help prevent these types of losses.

Liability

Accidents which injure customers and damage their property through your negligence can be costly, not only financially, but in the pain and suffering they cause. You should do everything possible to eliminate liability hazards at your place of business. Here are some precautions to consider.

Automobile/Fleet Safety

The safe operation of vehicles – both yours and your customers' – is important to the success of your business. Accidents reflect negatively on your operations and damage your reputation. Here are several suggestions which will help you prevent accidents and losses.

We also recommend making a thorough inspection of the building for fire hazards at the close of each business day. Any hazards found on the premises should be corrected before they cause a fire while your building is unattended.
