FAQs

Commercial truck insurance is a collection of particular vehicle insurance plans created to cater to the demands of trucking companies. Your trucks are covered by standard commercial truck insurance plans in the case of an accident. The majority of losses from a variety of risks are covered by collision and comprehensive coverage.

We provide cheap 24 to 72 hour plans for owner-operators who need short-term or temporary coverage to move a vehicle. For people who need to transport a truck from the place of purchase to their house or take one for repairs, these policies are helpful.

Our short term policy pricings are listed as:

  • 1 days – $140

  • 3 days – $340
  • 4 days – $440
  • 5 days – $540

Commercial truck insurance covers damages such as collision, theft, fire, explosions, as well as various other physical damages.

The vehicle’s weight influences the cost of truck insurance. Higher coverage limits are needed for heavier vehicles, which raises the cost of insurance. This is partly because it’s harder to stop quickly with a heavy vehicle and because it may do more harm than a slower one.

Trucking insurance might also be more costly in some locations. The cost of trucking insurance will be greater if you run your truck or vehicles primarily on congested roadways or in areas where the cost of living is high.

The cost of trucking insurance also depends on the kind and value of the cargo being transported.

Drivers or owners of larger vehicles like dump trucks, cargo vans, and automobiles weighing more than 15,000 pounds often require commercial truck insurance.

Typically, filings are finalized 48 hours after the request is made.

  • Losses arise in the event of war, nuclear risks, intentional damages, etc.
