Business Insurance can be complicated. We're here to help.
Commercial auto insurance, also known as commercial vehicle insurance or business auto insurance, provides coverage for vehicles such as cars, trucks, vans, and trailers used for business purposes. Any vehicle that is used to transport materials, tools and equipment, packaged goods or people should have a commercial auto policy.
You need commercial auto insurance if you have vehicles used for:
business purposes, including vehicles with a commercial license plate or tag, or that are registered for commercial use
public use, including those registered as a public bus or school bus
You will also require a commercial auto insurance policy if you have employees operating their own vehicles for your business (eg couriers).
