Commercial Auto & Trucking Insurance

Who Needs Commercial Auto Insurance? 

If you use vehicles for your business, commercial auto insurance is a smart choice, even if you are leasing the vehicles. Commercial auto insurance policies typically have higher coverage limits than personal policies. If you are unsure if your business needs commercial auto coverage, consider if you use the vehicle for any of the following:

  • Transporting tools to a job site
  • Delivering goods to customers
  • Having an employee run an errand in the vehicle
  • Driving to different job sites in one day

    Additionally, if your business transports goods across state lines, you may be required by law to carry commercial auto insurance.  


What Does Commercial Auto Insurance Cover?

Generally, commercial auto insurance covers things such as medical expenses for individuals who are injured in an accident involving your business vehicles, property damage from auto accidents, and damage to your business vehicles from certain covered weather events. Some other common commercial auto insurance coverages are:

  • Collision coverage
  • Hired Auto
  • Non-Owned Auto
  • Combined Single Limit
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Typical Exclusions for Commercial Auto Liability Insurance

While policies vary, there are certain activities typically not covered when it comes to commercial auto liability insurance. For example, organized racing or participation in a demolition event in a covered vehicle probably would not be covered. Another typical exclusion is intended injury or damage, such as an employee using a covered vehicle to destroy property following a road rage incident. Your commercial insurance policy may have different exclusions, so it is always a good idea to review it with your local insurance agent to see what is covered.
