Think back to when you purchased your first tools as a mechanic—they were really expensive! Knowing how much money you put into those tools, you want to make sure they are adequately covered should something happen to them.
Coverage for your tools could be afforded in different places depending on how you are insured:
Depending on your situation, you need to ensure the proper coverage is in place for your tools. The first step is to determine if the shop you work for has employee tools coverage. This is where your tools would be covered. If the shop doesn't have employee tools coverage and you are responsible for purchasing your own insurance, make sure you have portable tools coverage on your policy with a high enough limit to cover your tools if they are destroyed.
