Garage Keeper Insurance: Protection for the Owner and Customer

Those that own and operate vehicle repair shops, garages, towing companies, etc. are responsible for the repair and transport of vehicles owned by others. The owners of the vehicles that entrust them to others expect them to be kept safe and free from harm while in their care. Garage keeper insurance is designed to protect customer’s property and the business in the event of property damage. Garage Keeper Insurance Garage keeper insurance protects the owner of the facility in the event a customer’s vehicle is damaged while under the owners care. This insurance covers damage caused by fire, theft, and extreme weather conditions, as well as vandalism of the premises and contents. Garage keeper insurance does not cover damage that might occur because of faulty workmanship or parts. It also does not include coverage for anything left in the customer’s vehicle, in either the glove compartment or trunk, nor does it cover stereo equipment of an aftermarket nature. At the discretion of the garage owner, the policy may be extended to include personal property left in the vehicle. This endorsement, although not necessary to avoid liability exposure, is often taken as it has the benefit of bolstering the reputation of the garage at minimal cost to the owner. Garage Liability Insurance Garage keeper insurance is usually purchased with a liability policy; however, it is a separate policy. Liability insurance is different; it covers bodily injury or damage to the customer’s property as a result of an accident that arises from the operation. Garage liability insurance protects the business owner in the event of third-party injury, damage caused by equipment that is owned by the garage, and parts used that causes damage to the vehicle. There are subtle but significant differences between garage keeper and garage liability insurance. To ensure that you have adequate protection, both are needed. Visit Boardwalk...

The Purpose And Use Of A Brass Needle Valve

Brass has long been a metal of choice for parts and fitting. Part of the reason it is such a good choice for most types of parts is that it is highly resistant to corrosion, even when exposed to chemicals and other types of materials that destroy other alloys. Brass is also a material that does not rust, which means it can be used as a material in a valve when fluids or water are present. With a very long life cycle, the ability to work in high-temperature environments without cracking or breaking as well as the relatively low cost of the metal, it makes a good material choice for a wide range of valves. A brass needle valve has all the advantages of brass, including strength, corrosion resistance and the ability to work in high temperature as well as high-pressure systems and applications. The Design Benefits A brass needle valve is a top choice when the system has to have very precise control of the flow or when a gradual shut off or throttling is required. As the name implies, the valve is designed with a long, pointed valve stem that resembles the shape of a small knitting needle. There are miniature versions of these types of valves as well, which are ideal in low pressure and low flow types of applications. By turning the handle, the needle valve stem of the brass needle valve can be moved into or out of the seat of the valve to precisely control the flow. Very small turns clockwise or counterclockwise allow the operator to increase or decrease flow through the valve without a lot of pressure or effort. These valves are designed to be lightweight to be mounted where needed in the system. They are practical, durable valves that have a long-life cycle and extremely low maintenance requirements. 1 person...

Call a Mice Exterminator in NYC as Soon as You Suspect You Have an Uninvited Guest

Mice are cute little critters that simply want to visit the home, or so many believe. These little invaders can actually do a great deal of damage, thus any sign of a mouse in the house should immediately prompt a call to a mice exterminator in NYC. They may enter the home through a tiny crack and take up residence before the homeowner realizes they are present. Furthermore, they breed quickly so the problems can multiply in a short period of time. What are the dangers of one or more mice in a home? Contamination of Food and Food Prep Surfaces Mice are agile creatures. They can get up on countertops, squeeze into drawers under the stove, and make their home in a number of locations in the kitchen. Every time they come across one of these surfaces, they may leave behind urine and droppings. These remains can contaminate the food humans in the home eat or the surfaces on which this food is prepared. No person can risk this, so the animals need to be removed immediately. Carriers of Harmful Disease The plague has been eradicated for a number of years, right? While this is not a widespread issue today, mice do carry a number of diseases that can be transmitted to humans. This includes the Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. In addition, if a pet gets a hold of the mice, roundworm, and other parasites may be transmitted to the pet. Often, the humans do not know this is the case until the animal exhibits symptoms. Damage to the Home Mice like to gnaw on things. Although their teeth are small, they can do extensive damage. This damage may be seen in the structure itself, in the furnishings within the home, or on the personal belongings of the occupants. This doesn’t even take into account the risk of an...
