Whether you’re part of a syndicate of independent drivers or you manage a company with a large fleet of drivers, risk mitigation for your commercial trucking operations is critical. Adequate insurance coverage is one of the most important aspects of your risk mitigation plan. You need to assure that you have affordable but comprehensive protection that is commensurate with the scope of your risk exposure. Here are some important considerations for ensuring semi-truck drivers.
Much like all standard auto insurance, semi-truck insurance can be subject to a wide variation in rates. When you’re getting quotes, it’s advisable that you reach out to an insurance company that is experienced in serving clients in your industry. It will have access to many of the best carriers in the marketplace, so you can feel confident that you’re getting a competitive quote.
A commercial semi-truck operator may need to have more than just general liability insurance or a policy that covers physical damage. Being fully protected may require including a few other important coverages.
- Trailer Interchange
- Commercial Equipment
- Property Damage
- Trucking Pollution
- Workers’ Compensation
If your current insurance policy expires soon, reach out to an insurance company in your area that serves truckers. You can talk to an agent by phone or apply for a quote online.
