Why Do People Choose

  • Liability

    This is the most common form of state-required auto insurance. Liability insurance is made up of two types of coverages:
    • Bodily injury
      This coverage will help cover costs related to injuries suffered by others as a result of an accident caused by you or your employees.
    • Property damage
      This coverage will cover costs associated with damage to other people’s property in an accident caused by you or your employees.
  • Cargo Insurance

    This will help provide a financial safety net in case your cargo is damaged during transportation.
  • Collision

    This coverage will help pay for repairs or replacement of your box truck if it is damaged in an accident.
  • Comprehensive

    This coverage will help pay for repairs or replacement of your box truck if it is damaged in a non-collision incident (e.g., fire, theft, vandalism).
  • Non-Trucking Liability

    If you are a for-hire driver, you may need this insurance to help cover liability-related costs if you cause an accident in your box truck while you are not on dispatch.
