Finest protection with excellent service
For many truckers, it is common to use non-owned trailers when they haul goods to several destinations on a daily basis. Protecting a leased trailer is important and here non-owner trailer insurance offers extensive protection that covers the trailer against all sorts of potential damages when they are attached to your truck.

What is non-owner trailer coverage?

This policy is extended protection over a covered truck that secures a non-owned trailer when it is attached to the main truck. This coverage protects you against possible physical damages and risk exposures to the trailer while hauling or changing it from one unit to another. Non-owner trailer coverage proves to be advantageous only when it is attached to the main unit (truck) in the event of an accident.

Trailer interchange vs. non-owned trailer coverage

Trailer interchange is an agreement between two truckers that makes one liable to pay for the likely damages to the rented/borrowed trailer. It is a vital part of truck insurance coverage that protects you against damages caused to the trailer whether it was attached to the main unit or not during the incident. This policy provides coverage for:
Hot shot truckers, freight movers, debris removal truckers, garbage collectors, tow truckers, owner-operators, and auto haulers need trailer interchange insurance.
Non-owned trailer coverage protects all borrowed or leased trailers in your possession. If any damage happens to the trailer when they are attached to your truck then this policy reimburses
for the cost that the trailers have suffered during the accident.  The key difference between the two is that you don’t require a written trailer interchange agreement in non-owner trailer coverage but the trailer must be attached to the truck in the incident to qualify for the coverage.

Why do you need non-owned trailer coverage?

If your trucking business involves the use of leased or borrowed trailers on a regular basis, then you definitely need this coverage. The trailer that you don’t own should be covered for many reasons. For instance, if your truck catches fire due to some issue you never knew existed can cause serious damage to the trailer you are carrying. Non-owned trailer coverage protects against the physical damages caused to the leased trailer. Not having this coverage can extremely impact your trucking operations.

Also, the repairing cost of trailers can go unimaginably higher and this is the very reason why you need this coverage for.

Trailer interchange and non-owned trailer insurance are the same to a certain extent. The only difference between the two coverages is that in non-owned trailer insurance the trailer must be attached to the power unit when the accident happens for processing the claim. Whereas in trailer interchange whether the trailer is attached to the truck or not, you will get compensated for the damages arising out of an incident.
