Why You Need Trucking Insurance

Here are a few of the top reasons why your business needs trucking insurance.

  • It’s the Law: To comply with the law, you will need to provide at least the minimum protections, following guidelines released by the United States Code of Federal Regulations. Remember, every vehicle in your fleet must be insured.
  • Accidents Happen: From fender benders to rollovers, accidents happen. You have to be a responsible owner and insure your commercial vehicles to protect you, your business, your employees and other motorists.
  • Protect Your Cargo: Cargo insurance will protect any products you are hauling. Loads can topple over, accidents happen, vehicle fires start, etc. You could lose a lot of money if you lose the cargo you’re supposed to be transporting.
  • Physical Damage Protection: This type of insurance covers collisions and rolls. Let’s face it: big trucks are tough to maneuver.
  • Build Customers’ Confidence: Your clients will want to know their products are in good hands. With a properly insured business, your customers will feel more comfortable doing business with you.
  • Cover Your Specific Needs: Not all trucking insurance is the same. One company may have to insure 50 trucks, while another only has two. You can pick and choose the level of insurance options you want, to match your needs.
