Commercial Trucking & Transportation Insurance Coverage
The type of commercial transport insurance coverage that you need will depend on your business. Your coverage can include:
This helps protect your premises, furniture, equipment, tools, inventory and everything else owned by your business.
- General Commercial Liability
This is basic liability insurance that covers expenses associated with injuries or property damage and corresponding lawsuits.
- Trucking Insurance, or Commercial Auto and Fleet
This covers third-party liability if your commercial transport operation is involved in an accident. It can also cover physical damage to your vehicles. Fleet insurance is applicable if you have more than 4 commercial vehicles.
This coverage protects the goods you’re transporting and will cover damage or loss to them while they’re in your hands.
If you’re forced to stop operating due to a covered loss or a mandatory evacuation, could you afford to keep paying your bills? This coverage helps you get through this difficult time and be ready to open as soon as you can. Some policies even provide funds for temporary relocation so you can keep your business running.
Crime coverage protects you from business-related crime such as fraud, theft, and forgery. These are not usually covered by a normal policy, so this is good protection to have.
Equipment breakdown is not generally covered with regular property insurance, so you’d be on the hook unless your equipment is physically damaged or destroyed. Equipment breakdown will help cover the cost of repairs or replacement of your equipment if it breaks down.
Attractive employers offer good benefits. We provide extended health care, disability, life, and critical illness group insurance plans for businesses.
Of course, there are many more options for your transportation insurance, including coverage for marine shipping, air transportation and US or international exposures. Our transportation and trucking insurance brokers will help you determine your needs and choose the best coverage for your company while respecting your budget.
Who needs commercial transportation insurance?
If you transport goods for money, you need commercial transportation or trucking insurance. This applies whether you operate a trucking fleet or are the sole employee as an owner-operator. In fact, a certain amount and type of liability insurance is required by law.
This protection helps reduce the financial burden of a disaster like wrecked cargo or an accident.
How much does commercial transport & trucking insurance cost?
Pricing for commercial transport & trucking insurance depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Your insurance and claims history
- Where you’re located and where you operate
- This indicates the crime rates, claim rates, frequency of natural disasters, and your proximity to fire services and hazards
- The value, make, model, and year of each vehicle
- The number of vehicles you want to insure
- The type and value of the cargo you transport
- Your transportation insurance options including loss settlement, coverages, policy limits and deductible
The cost of commercial transportation insurance will vary dramatically based on your individual business. That’s why it’s key that you get a number of quotes to compare prices and the level of protection available. We can help take care of that research and price shipping for you.
