What We Do Not Insure

At Progressive, we offer commercial auto insurance for almost all business types, vehicle types and business situations. However, there are some businesses and vehicles that we can't protect while maintaining a high level of quality and service.

In these cases, we can refer you to a local independent agent who can check with several different companies to help you find the commercial auto insurance protection you need.

Please note: We continually update this list, but there may be some omissions. Please contact us to find out whether a Progressive Commercial policy is the right choice for you.
