Coverage for Car Dealerships, Gas Stations, Mechanic Shops, and Parking Garages in Oregon

How do you obtain coverage for my Oregon business (Car dealership, mechanic/auto repair shop, gas station, parking garage) that Business Auto policy does not cover? 

Car dealerships, gas/service stations, parking garages, mechanic or auto repair shops are excluded under the Business Auto Policy. That’s why OR Garage coverage is necessary for these types of businesses.

The Oregon Garage Coverage From provides the same coverage as the Business Auto Form, however, garage coverage also provides coverage for the premises and the operations of the business. At Ferranti-Graybeal it is our mission to educate our clients and consumers. We feel it’s extremely important to provide useful information regarding insurance and the policies that protect you.
