Mechanic’s Errors and Omissions Coverage

Mechanic’s errors and omissions coverage is a coverage that extends Garagekeeper’s insurance to cover faulty work by a mechanic or damage to a vehicle resulting in defective parts. Garagekeeper’s insurance will cover comprehensive and collision claims, but there is a specific exclusion for faulty work performed or faulty products that result in a loss. Take the below scenario into consideration:

A mechanic is working on performing an oil change, removes the oil drain plug bolt, drains all the oil from the engine, and then starts a conversation another employee. After the conversation ends, the employee proceeds to fill the engine with oil, but forgot to re-install the oil drain plug bolt. The employee starts the engine, and after a couple of minutes throws a rod, damaging the engine.

The resulting damage to the engine would not be covered in a typical garagekeeper’s policy, as this is caused by faulty work performed. Many mechanic E&O claims require as low as a $250 deductible, potentially saving your business thousands of dollars on a new engine.

I am a small commercial contractor and they have helped us walk through the bonding processes. They have been very respectful, welling to answer all of our questions, and provided great advice. The best part is that we have been able to do several public projects that require a bid bond and then a performance bond. They are really responsive and provide great service. I have no concerns giving them 5 stars and recommending them.
