Things To Know Before Choosing Truck Insurance

The most prolific safety problem in American transportation is motor vehicle collisions. In the United States, about 500,000 trucking incidents occur each year, with around 5,000 resulting in death. In 2019, a total of 4,119 people were killed in significant truck collisions. Truck occupants accounted for 16% of the deaths, car and other passenger vehicle occupants accounted for 67%, and pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists collectively accounted for 15%. The number of people killed in major truck accidents has increased by 31% since 2009.

A regular commercial auto insurance policy is insufficient for owners and operators of trucks. Truckers must recognize the tremendous physical harm that their trucks have the capacity to cause, including environmental/property damages, the high cost of fixing such a large vehicle, and the cost of replacing any cargo damaged in transport.

An excellent trucking insurance company offers far more than just protection from harm done to the truck; it also provides truck drivers with the coverage that they are legally required to provide when running a vehicle on the road. This legal provision includes unrestricted coverage for third-party bodily harm or death, as well as coverage for third-party property damage.

The cost of truck insurance can be quite high. Each operator must pay an amount depending upon the Insurance Agency, which is calculated based on several factors. These factors may include the following:

  • The truck is particularly valuable.
  • Where the trucks are driven and whether they travel internationally
  • The nature of your business, as well as whether or not you visit hazardous sites or transport of dangerous materials.
  • The age and experience of your drivers, as well as their injury and prosecution records.
  • If you’re consciously using telematics software or camera systems to track and enhance your drivers’ driving style and behavior.

A hauler with up to five vehicles would usually have each of their trucks classified separately. Above that number of vehicles, policies are typically fleet-rated, with premiums based heavily on prior claims experience across the entire truck fleet, including semi truck insurance.

  • Special thanks to George and Irina. They helped me out and I'm very glad I talked to them. They didn't waste time or beat around the bush. They got me a great quote for my house and car insurance. I'd definitely recommend giving them a call for a quote. In a time where customer service is king, these two are definitely up there when I have any questions or need help.

  • Здравствуйте, хочу поблагодарить Георгия за помощь в оформлении мед. Страховки! Я с ребенком нахожусь недавно в США и совершенно не знаю как оформляются страховки и всё остальное! Сколько нужно за это платить и тд ! Пошла в ближайшее место по страховкам и там насчитали за оформление (400$),Тк пока без работы и каждый доллар на счету и перед принятием любого решения взвешиваю, решила отложить этот вопрос и ещё искать информацию! когда я на fb увилела объявление о том, что Георгий помогает с оформлением страховки для украинцев бесплатно, я набрала Георгия и этот человек уделил мне время, спокойным голосом всё рассказал, разжевал буквально пошагово и всё оформил! Даже затронули тему от куда я( такое чисто человеческое отношение). Такой отклик и такая поддержка настолько выручает! Я очень благодарна, что есть такие люди, которые помогают другим тем, чем они могут! Особенно в такое время! Это так важно! Для таких , как я , (а таких очень много)это такая рука помощи и такое подспорье! Ещё раз благодарю!

Do I need a Philadelphia Trucking Insurance Agency?
You’ll need truck insurance along with auto insurance, no matter how many trucks you run and whether you’re an owner or a fleet operator. It’s not just because it’s a legal obligation, but also because your trucks are a major investment that needs to be protected. Comprehensive coverage protects you from bodily harm or property damage incurred by your vehicle and from loss or damage to the truck itself. Hiring a truck insurance agency like Remco Insurance Services will always be the optimal choice due to our rich industry experience. Our professionals can provide end to end help for your insurance needs.

Information

Owners and operators of commercial trucks can’t get by with a standard commercial auto insurance policy. In addition to protecting the cargo that they carry, truckers must consider the massive physical damage that can be caused by their trucks, the potential environmental issues an accident could cause, and the expensive cost to repair their large vehicles.

Liability Insurance

For bodily injury and property damage liability exposure, one should consider an auto liability insurance policy. This policy will protect truckers by covering many different types of harm that they can unintentionally inflict on others and their property. This includes accidental damage to a retailer’s delivery dock, to other drivers, vehicles, and pedestrians.

Cargo Insurance

Your clients rely on you to safely deliver their cargo in the same condition it was in when they turned it over to you. With cargo insurance you can reimburse a client for qualifying damages made to their cargo during transport—and all without tapping into your business bank account except to pay the deductible.

Bobtail Insurance

When your truck is without cargo, it still needs protection. Bobtail insurance covers your truck even when it is not operational.

Physical Damage Insurance

If your truck is in an accident or collision, you need the right commercial insurance policy protecting your financial interests. Collision insurance and comprehensive insurance can cover various accidents and damages caused by theft, vandalism and fire.

Environmental Liability Insurance

If your truck carries cargo that can be environmentally toxic or could contribute to pollution, you need special insurance to help pay for the cost of the cleanup if it should be spilled in an accident. Environmental liability insurance will cover this expense, as long as it occurs in a qualifying situation.
