What is work vehicle insurance and why do I need it?
Work vehicle insurance, sometimes referred to as commercial auto insurance, is a type of business insurance that applies to all vehicles owned or used by your business. The purpose of this type of insurance is to protect your business against third-party liability for damages caused by collisions. With work vehicle insurance in your back pocket, you can rest easy knowing that if an employee gets into an accident in a company car, your insurance may help cover the cost of vehicle repairs or medical expenses relating to injuries. Work vehicle insurance is available on all makes and models of business vehicles, from trailers and trucks to vans and cars. Ultimately, if your business relies on transportation and has its own fleet of work vehicles, no matter how small, purchasing a work vehicle insurance policy is a wise decision.
Lastly, it’s important to note that work vehicle insurance can only be purchased by the owner of the vehicle. In other words, the company that owns the vehicle is responsible for purchasing work vehicle insurance, not the employee driving it.
