COMMERCIAL AUTO INSURANCE

What is commercial auto insurance?

Commercial Auto Insurance provides coverage for vehicles used by your business…

  • Damage to your vehicle(s)
  • Driver and passenger injury
  • Injury to third parties
  • Damage to someone else’s property

Commercial insurance or personal insurance?

Things to to consider when deciding what type of insurance policy you need:

Who Owns and Drives the Vehicle?
If your vehicle is owned by a business, you probably need a commercial auto insurance policy. If you’re a sole proprietor, you could use your personal auto insurance policy. Talk to your agent to determine which usage and the best policy for you. If your business vehicle requires higher liability limits, you will probably need a commercial auto insurance policy.

Commercial auto policies typically have higher coverage limits than personal policies, because business vehicles need more protection in case of accidents. s

Size Matters
If your vehicle is larger or heavier than a normal size pickup or SUV, like a dump truck, tow truck, or semi truck and commercial trailer, you might require a commercial auto insurance policy. Heavy duty vehicles can cause more damage if they’re involved in an accident and can require special insurance coverages.

What types of vehicles are typically Covered?

  • Cars
  • Vans & SUVs
  • Pickup trucks
  • Food Trucks
  • Box trucks
  • Service utility trucks

Note that personal auto insurance policies may provide enough auto insurance coverage for some businesses, especially if you’re also driving your vehicle for personal use.
