Commercial Auto Insurance

If you own or lease vehicles specifically for business purposes, this includes cars, trucks or vans, you need a commercial auto insurance policy.

What Is Commercial Auto Insurance?

Commercial auto insurance is liability and physical damage protection for vehicles used for business. Commercial vehicles require this specific type of coverage because they’re typically exposed to more risk than personal vehicles.

Commercial auto insurance is for more than just industrial vehicles. This type of policy covers all vehicles used for business such as cars and vans.

If you use a vehicle to run errands for your business, as a form of transportation to and from client appointments, or to carry tools or transport clients, you might also need a commercial auto policy.

What Is Covered Under Commercial Auto Insurance?

A commercial auto insurance policy may provide coverage for vehicles you own, lease, hire or use in your business as well as liability coverage for bodily injury and property damage caused to others by your use of the insured business vehicles.

Commercial auto insurance typically covers:

  • Liability damages
  • Collision or comprehensive physical damage
  • Medical Expenses of injured occupants of the commercial vehicle
  • Damages sustained by occupants of your commercial vehicle due to negligence of underinsured and uninsured motorist
