Frequently asked questions

Property insurance and public liability can cover your most pressing risks – like a damaged customer vehicle or claims of faulty workmanship. But industry threats and risks are constantly emerging.

Statutory requirements – to which Bridgestone franchisees and licensees must strictly adhere – change often. If you or an employee breaches them, regulatory bodies can impose hefty fines and penalties. In this scenario, errors and omissions insurance can help.

And if professional advice is part of your service offering, errors and omissions insurance can also address the risks of mistaken or incorrect advice that ends up causing your customers harm. 

If claims of unfair dismissal, discrimination, bullying or harassment come your way, management liability insurance can cover you against costly legal fees and liabilities.

And with the risk of cyber attacks and security breaches only on the rise, cybersecurity insurance can be instrumental in protecting your and your customers’ personal data.

All retail businesses need some form of insurance to protect their assets. But it’s important that their cover is tailored to their business: services, location and business size all inform their risk profile.

Generally speaking, Bridgestone franchisees and licensees may need to consider protection against a wide range of risks to stay in the green. Accidents, damage and injury can happen unexpectedly – and the costs incurred could be an even greater shock.

Public liability insurance is crucial for any business that interacts directly with the public. Tyre & auto businesses are no exception.

If you accidentally damage a customer’s vehicle during a test drive, you may need to cover the repair costs. And if vehicle repairs or modifications turn out to be faulty, it could lead to the injury or death of a driver, passenger, bystander or other third party. You could be held liable for compensation as a result.

Public liability insurance can help offer support in all sorts of situations.  

The cost of your tyre dealer insurance will depend on several factors – including your business size, revenue and services provided.
