Tow Truck Insurance

Any business that earns income by towing or providing roadside repair to disabled vehicles is considered a tow truck business. That includes operating a repair facility or performing repossession work. Examples of businesses that might need commercial tow truck insurance include:

  • Roadside service providers
  • Auto club contractors
  • Rotational towing
  • Auto body shops
  • Auto mechanical repair
  • Full service stations
  • Auto salvage and auction haulers

Towing & Storage Protection

Oftentimes, towing insurance can cover much more than a typical rollback truck or wrecker. In fact, many tow truck companies often carry garagekeepers legal liability insurance (covers customers’ vehicles while parked on your property), on-hook towing insurance (protects customers’ vehicles while in tow), and tow general liability insurance which pays when and or if you’re legally liable for bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury that isn’t directly related to your covered vehicles.

Pickup Truck Insurance Coverages

Whether you’re a contractor, landscaper, or any skilled tradesperson that drives a pickup truck daily for your business, it is important to have the correct kind of insurance to protect you from the uncertain future. Here are some common types of pickup truck insurance options.

Liability Insurance

Includes Bodily Injury and Property Damage coverage and will cover injuries or damage to other people or property of you’re at fault for an accident.

Physical Damage Coverage

Includes Comprehensive and Collision coverage and can protect your pickup truck if it is stolen or collides with another object.

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Insurance

Provides coverage when you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. Uninsured Motorist insurance differs state to state but our licensed agents can help determine what options are available.

Dump Truck Insurance

From one small dump truck to an entire fleet, we can provide coverage at an affordable price. Regardless of what is being hauled (sand, gravel, asphalt, etc.) we offer a wide variety of coverages to ensure protection in case of an accident. Keep in mind, as a dump truck operator, liability insurance and physical damage coverage will be needed to fully cover all types of accidents. If you’re working on a for-hire basis, another insurance line to consider purchasing is Motor Truck Cargo insurance to protect the items you are hauling while on a job.

Commercial Van Insurance

Does your business make consistent deliveries? Liability insurance to pay for damages or injuries to other people or property if you are at fault is definitely a must, but also physical damage insurance is a good idea to protect injuries and cargo being hauled if in an accident. However, if you’re working as an independent contractor, your employer may provide insurance coverage that protects the products or delivered goods being transported in your commercial delivery van, so it is always a good idea to ask and make sure there is some level of coverage. Some common examples of businesses that require commercial van insurance are:

  • Couriers
  • Expeditors
  • Florists
  • Caterers making deliveries
  • Electricians, Plumbers, or other tradesmen making service calls
