Types of Tow Truck Insurance
What are some examples of losses covered in Tow Truck Insurance?
There are in general two types of covered loss on a Tow Policy, property and liability. When you are in an at fault accident, the liability portion of your policy will always respond to any bodily injury and property damaged incurred.
If any damage occurs to your tow truck while involved in an accident regardless of fault, then your equipment will be covered less your deductible. This assumes you elected Physical Damage coverage on your policy, as this coverage is optional whereas liability coverage is regulated and required by the state.
Types of Businesses that Commonly Need Tow Truck Insurance
All trucks that tow for hire (get paid a fee), Trucks that require a PUC sticker and trucks that file for DOT and MC numbers.
Other Common Insurance Coverages Tow Truck Operators Need
Cargo Coverage can be separate coverage for on hook, cargo is covered non-motorized vehicles like tool boxes or sheds.
Property of Others is the contents of what is in the trailer you are hauling. If your driver gets into an accident while towing trailer and the trailer has an upset, everything inside is the owner’s responsibility. Very important coverage, not all carriers offer this option.
Loss of Use: Coverage that pays for a loss of income while a commercial vehicle (ie: garbage truck) is in the repair shop waiting for repairs. This exposure can become very expensive, so it is important to confirm the coverage and equally important to confirm the limits.
Why picking the right Agent Matters
