Q. What’s the minimum number of vehicles considered a fleet?
A. If you have 5 or more vehicles – such as private passenger, light commercial or heavy commercial – registered in your company’s name, this group will be typically defined as a fleet. Pricing for fleet insurance varies and is negotiated by the broker and underwriter based on a number of factors including the loss ratio, vehicle usage, geography, driver history and more.
Q. Should my business vehicle(s) be individually rated?
A. Another form of commercial auto insurance, which is similar to personal lines auto policies which assess each vehicle using a consistent rating matrix is commonly known as individually rated. Often, individually rated commercial auto departments operate separately from fleet insurance departments and not all insurance companies provide both types of auto coverage. We can help you get an auto insurance quote that specifically addresses how vehicles are used by your business.
Q. What is BI or Third-Party Bodily Injury Liability?
A. Injuries that you, the designated driver or policyholder (i.e. your organization) are alleged to cause to someone else are covered by third-party bodily injury liability (BI). Claims for bodily injury include medical bills, loss of income, or pain and suffering. Note that BI does NOT cover the cost of damage to your organization’s vehicle.
Q. What is PD or Third-Party Property Damage Liability?
A. Meanwhile, third-party property damage liability (PD) covers you or someone driving the auto with your permission if the vehicle damages someone else’s property. Typically, the property is another vehicle, but it could be a fence, telephone pole, house, etc. PD coverage also provides you with legal defence if another party files a lawsuit against you.
Q. How do Accident Benefits work?
A. Accident benefits coverage can provide medical expenses, income replacement and other possible benefits to you and your passengers injured in an accident. Depending on where you live, accidents benefits coverage may be mandatory.
There are many additional types of auto coverage to consider include medical payments insurance, funeral expense benefits, disability income benefits and death benefits. Across Canada, our advocates can deliver an auto insurance quote that specifically addresses your operations, location(s) and coverage requirements.
