Repair/Maintenance Occupations and Car Insurance

According to the U.S. government, individuals employed in repair/maintenance occupations may be employed full-time or part-time.

These workers usually offer routine maintenance or service of automobiles or vehicles, electronic or other precision devices, industry machinery/equipment, or personal/household appliances and equipment.

Car insurance companies want to know that an insured driver has the ability to pay car insurance premiums on time.

In the event of a car accident, the insurance company holding the driver’s policy needs to know that the driver can pay the deductible.

That’s one of the reasons an insurance company requests individual financial information about each driver they insure.

Many repair/maintenance workers have solid work histories and good driving records.

Repair/Maintenance Worker Compensation and Car Insurance

Car insurance isn’t a luxury, and repair/maintenance workers driving a personal or commercial vehicle must have car insurance in order to get behind the wheel.

Workers with less than 40-hour work weeks may have less access to employer-sponsored benefits, such as health and medical insurance.

These workers may be required to spend higher out of pocket amounts to obtain medical care than workers with employer-sponsored benefits.

Repair/maintenance workers may drive vehicles in average or less than average condition.

A car insurance company looks at the individual vehicle, including the make, model, and year of the car, prior to offering the driver a policy or assigning car insurance rates.

Repair/Maintenance Workers and Occupational Risk

Repair/maintenance workers have an approximate 12 percent higher incidence of fatalities in the workplace than other occupations, according to U.S. government statistics.

For that reason, car insurance companies may assign additional risk to those working in repair/maintenance jobs.

Naturally, your specific job title and description can help to allay the concerns of a prospective car insurance company.

If you’re a supervisor or manager without responsibilities for directly repairing or maintaining equipment or devices, your overall occupational risk may be considered lower than that of a line worker.

Again, car insurance companies want to insure healthy drivers.

If your occupation makes you a higher than usual candidate for injury, disability, or unemployment, your car insurance rates may be higher than those of a driver in a job that’s perceived as more stable by the insurance industry.

Private employers hire most repair/maintenance workers. The risk associated with private employers may be considered higher than that of municipal or U.S. government repair/maintenance roles.
