Commercial Truck Insurance Factors to Consider When Calculating Your Cost

When choosing commercial truck insurance, it’s important to consider various factors that can impact your coverage and premiums. Here are some key aspects to keep in mind:

State Regulations: Insurance requirements vary by state. Ensure you’re compliant with your state’s specific regulations and minimum coverage requirements.

Years in Business: The longer your trucking business has been operational, the more favorable your insurance rates might be. Newer businesses might face higher premiums.

Type of Truck: Different types of trucks (e.g., tractor-trailers, box trucks, tow trucks) have different insurance needs and associated costs.

Insurance Coverage Type: Consider the specific types of coverage you need, such as:

  • General Liability
  • Primary Liability
  • Physical Damage
  • Collision
  • Comprehensive
  • Fire and Theft
  • Motor Truck Cargo
  • Non-Trucking Liability (Bobtail)
  • Trailer Interchange
  • Garage Keepers Legal Liability
  • On-Hook Towing
  • Hired and Non-Owned Auto

Truck Usage: How your truck is used (long-haul vs. local) affects the risk and thus the insurance premium. Long-haul routes generally cost more to insure.

Driving History: A driver’s record (poor, fair, good, excellent) plays a significant role in determining insurance rates. Safer driving histories lead to lower premiums.

Claims History: The number of claims filed in the past (0 claims, 1-2 claims, 3+ claims) can impact your premiums. Fewer claims typically mean lower costs.

Credit Score: Your business’s credit score (above 650, below 650) can influence insurance rates. Higher credit scores often result in better premiums.

Deductible Amount: Choosing a higher deductible can lower your premium, but it means you’ll pay more out-of-pocket in the event of a claim.

Type of Cargo:The nature of the cargo you transport (low, medium, high hazard) affects your risk level and insurance rates.
