Our highly trained insurance brokers are comfortable discussing your fleet insurance needs and finding solutions.
DO YOU NEED A COMMERCIAL OR PERSONAL POLICY?
While personal and commercial auto insurance policies provide similar types of coverage, there are important differences. Commercial auto insurance policies typically have higher liability limits than a personal automobile liability insurance policy. For example, a typical commercial auto policy may have a liability limit of $1 million. A commercial fleet auto liability insurance policy also may have provisions that cover rented and other non-owned vehicles, such as employee-owned vehicles that are driven for company business.
Commercial insurance can be complicated, so be sure to discuss any terms, conditions, or concepts you are not familiar with or do not fully understand with your producer. One of the services our producers provide is their ability to answer your questions and help you understand the insurance you are considering.
While your business may not need all types of commercial coverages, it is a good idea to have basic knowledge of the types of insurance coverages available. As your business changes and expands, you should reassess your coverages and determine what additional coverages you may wish to purchase. This is particularly true if your business grows and new risk exposures arise.
GREAT TIPS AND CONSIDERATIONS CONCERNING COMMERCIAL AUTO INSURANCE
• If your business owns or leases a vehicle, make sure the name of the business is listed on the policy declaration page as the insured.
• If you are relying on either a personal auto or personal umbrella liability insurance policy to provide you with protection for your company’s use of vehicles, closely review the policy language. Many personal insurance policies exclude business-related liability claims.
• If your employees operate a company car, make sure they have good driving records and are trained properly before you entrust your company vehicle to them. Failure to do so may expose your company to additional liability. The risk presented by your employees may
exceed the company’s underwriting guidelines and prevent you from getting insurance with the company you desire.
• Consider increasing insurance on your business vehicle(s) to cover permanently attached items, such as a generator or a storage unit.
