Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Tow Trucks need insurance?

These establishments provide towing services for motor vehicles. They may also provide emergency road repair and storage services.

Since you carry other people's property most of the time, tow trucks face a lot of risks. These risks could be property damage, personal injury, employee accidents, and other related risks. Without insurance, your business is responsible for these expenses out of pocket. When you have insurance, the insurance will cover these risks up to the limits of the policy.

Proper coverage for your towing business includes towing insurance, but there may be some other essential coverages that you might have overlooked. You’ve worked hard to build your towing business, likely involving some early mornings, late nights, and more than a few 3 am calls. A complete tow truck insurance package can help protect your business investment in terms of time and money and can also protect your assets.

What risks do Tow Truck businesses face?

There are several types of risks that your business can face. Below are some examples:

  • If you have a refueling station at your business, there are risks associated with fire.
  • You tow vehicles and your business is responsible for handling the vehicle with care. If you cause an accident and the vehicle in tow is damaged, you're responsible for the repairs.
  • Your business probably loads and unloads many vehicles. This increases the chance of employee injury or third-party property damage.

How much does Tow Truck insurance cost?

Tow truck insurance rates are based on a number of factors, including the number and types of trucks you have, the number of miles driven and geographic area, and your driving history. The types of coverage you choose and your coverage limits also affect premiums. CoverWallet works with many of the top insurers nationwide, which helps ensure you’ll get a competitive rate for your towing business.

Getting a quote is quick and easy and you can be properly covered faster than you might think.

Who needs Tow Truck insurance?

Like tow trucks themselves, towing businesses come in different types and sizes. Maybe towing is your only business or maybe you do some occasional towing as a way to complement your primary business. Whether you have a fleet of flatbed tow trucks or a single truck you use a few times a week, CoverWallet can help you build a commercial tow truck insurance package that meets the specific needs of your towing business.

If you have any of these types of towing businesses, CoverWallet can help:

  • Roadside service
  • Auto repair shops
  • Auction haulers
  • Auto salvage businesses
  • Auto body shops
  • Single auto transport
  • ...and more

A repair business that tows a dozen cars a month has different coverage needs than a towing fleet with a dozen trucks running 24 hours a day. CoverWallet’s experienced agents can help you choose the right coverage for your towing business.

What does Tow Truck insurance cover?

Your commercial tow truck insurance can cover a number of risks for your business starting with Commercial Auto Insurance, but possibly also including other essential coverages. Commercial Auto Insurance is at the heart of your insurance package with liability insurance to cover bodily injury and damage to property. Physical damage coverage can provide protection for your tow vehicles if they are damaged due to an accident, fire, theft, or other covered risks.

Your tow truck insurance policy can cover:

  • Bodily injury liability
  • Property damage liability
  • Collision coverage
  • Comprehensive coverage
  • Medical payments coverage
  • Uninsured/Underinsured motorist insurance

Depending on the size of your business, you may want to bundle the coverage for your truck with coverage to protect your business in other ways.

Among the most common policies purchased by towing providers are:

  • Commercial General Liability Insurance
  • Garagekeepers Liability Insurance
  • On-hook Towing Insurance
  • Workers’ Compensation

What are ways to save on Tow Truck insurance?

CoverWallet offers towing policies from several top insurers which allows us to find coverage that fits both your business and your budget. Many of CoverWallet’s tow truck insurance customers bundle their tow truck insurance coverage with other policies they need for their business which brings down the total cost of insurance by purchasing everything through one insurer.

A Commercial Package Policy can provide all the coverage you need without the expensive extras, so you can get back to business knowing your trucks and business are well covered. Just reach out to CoverWallet’s team of experienced agents for a fast, no-obligation insurance quote.
