Common questions

The people covered under a commercial truck insurance policy can vary and are specified in the policy. Any employees that drive your trucks (in addition to yourself) are known as “permissive users,” and must be listed on your policy.

Filings are usually completed within 48 hours of the request.

It depends. Coverage for the “personal use” of a commercial truck depends on whether the driver is operating under their own authority or they’re leased to a motor carrier. If they’re operating under their own authority, they’re covered for all personal use under their policy. If they’re leased to a motor carrier, they’re usually covered for business use only, but they could get Non-Trucking Liability insurance to cover their personal use.

Bobtail truck insurance is a coverage that protects your truck when it’s being driven without a trailer for a business purpose, like a trucker returning to their depot after dropping off a trailer.
