Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to insure a truck?
The cost of truckers insurance depends on a variety of factors. It is important to note that while most insurance providers do not offer truckers insurance, those that do may need to review your driving record, truck condition and age, types of freight transported, experience, and previous claims history. These factors can help determine the cost of your coverage. Truckers insurance is generally quite expensive and can also fluctuate depending on how many trucks you own. For example, if you own one truck, on average you may pay $8,000 a year while someone with two trucks may pay more.
What does Non-Trucking Insurance mean?
Non trucking insurance also known as bobtail liability is a type of liability coverage for when you use your commercial vehicle for personal use. Non trucking insurance provides coverage for property damage or bodily injury that may occur to a third party. Additionally non trucking insurance covers expenses that may arise from accidents when you are on the road but not on the clock, meaning during your personal time. However, non trucking insurance doesn't provide liability coverage for business use or when hauling any type of equipment from your truck.
What is the difference between Bobtail and Non-Trucking Insurance Liability?
The difference between bobtail insurance and non trucking insurance is that bobtail insurance covers you whether your truck is used for personal or business reasons while non trucking insurance does not. In bobtail insurance, you and your truck are covered, but only when you're not hauling cargo or a trailer. Non trucking insurance covers you in accidents that occur when you're using your truck for personal use such as grocery shopping, going to a restaurant, or even hauling some dirt for personal usage.
What kind of insurance do I need for a trucking company?
The kind of truckers insurance you need can depend on the size of your trucking company, how many employees you have, where your trucks are parked after business hours, and more. Some common types of truckers insurance include: Non-Trucking liability, bobtail liability, physical damage, general liability, cargo insurance, and primary liability which is required for truckers to have in all fifty states and will cover costs associated with individuals injured in accidents you cause on the road. You can select one or all of these insurances or even seek other types of truckers insurance depending on your company’s needs.
What is Unladen Insurance?
Unladen insurance provides coverage while your truck is being operated with an attached empty trailer, or without any trailer at all. Unladen insurance is a newer type of coverage that has recently gained popularity for being more flexible in its terms of coverage. Unladen insurance is more extensive than non-trucking and bobtail insurance and will cover you and your truck when you are bobtailing to and from the terminal or between loads. This type of insurance will also cover you whether your truck is used for business or leisure activities.
