Dealer Open Lot insurance provides physical damage coverage protection to a dealer’s covered autos and equipment. Covered Autos are typically private passenger vehicles (autos, pickups, minivans, SUV’s, etc.), RV units and other autos that are in the dealer’s inventory and held for sale. The vehicles may be used, new, demonstrators or service vehicles. Most insurance companies who write dealer open lot coverage require that the total value of the inventory be insured to 100% of their value.
Maximum Dealer’s Open Lot limits vary by state and range from $500,000 to $1,000,000. The Per Vehicle limit available is $150,000.
