Commercial Vehicle Insurance Policies Protect Your Business
Are you a business owner that maintains a number of vehicles for your employees to use? Or do you require your employees to use their own cars? Do you run your own business and use your personal vehicle for business purposes? Wherever you may fall in this spectrum, you are open to potential liability in the event of an auto accident. Do you know if you have the appropriate coverage to protect your business?
Here at Central Insurance Agency in Austin, we advise all of our business insurance customers on their potential auto risks and which coverages will best suit their needs. We discuss everything from type of coverage to extent of coverage to make sure each customer’s business is protected in the event of an accident.
Tailoring Auto Insurance Policies to Each Individual Business
Your auto insurance coverage needs will vary based on several factors, one of which is the type of business you run. For instance, the commercial auto policy we will create for any of the following types of businesses will likely not look the same as any of the others in the list:
- Construction companies with branded trucks and trailers
- Family-owned heating and cooling business with several service trucks
- Landscaping firms with trucks and utility trailers
- On-demand drivers who use personal vehicles to work for rideshare companies
- Pizza parlors with delivery cars
Available Coverage Options for Businesses
Regardless of the type of business you run, you will have access to the following coverage options.
- Bodily injury liability, to cover costs associated with injuries suffered by the other party in an accident that you caused
- Medical payments, to cover costs associated with injuries suffered by you and your passengers
- Property damage liability, to cover costs associated with someone else’s property damage in an accident that you caused
- Collision coverage, to cover costs associated with damage done to your car in any accident
- Uninsured/underinsured motorists, to cover your medical care associated with injuries caused by a driver that did not carry any insurance or carried an insufficient amount of coverage
- Comprehensive coverage, to cover costs associated with property damage related to incidents other than collision (e.g., hail damage or theft)
Which options you should choose, and how high of a coverage limit you choose, will likely depend on the conversations you have with your independent insurance agent. Perhaps there are exposures that you are currently not thinking about. Or perhaps you think you need more than is actually necessary to protect your business.
