We encourage you to NEVER base insurance decision solely on price. Normally, when we buy a product we look for the lowest price — if all other things are equal, we take it. If you insure for lower rates, but that company can’t provide good timely service, the lower premiums will not help you out at all when you can’t get loaded due to problems with your insurance. The same is valid when your claim is not covered because your insurance agent sold you a “subprime” policy. Please note that your actual proposal may vary based on underwriting factors such as location, age of driver, MVR and more. Coverages, payment plans, policy terms and conditions vary state by state. No two policies are the same. No two insurance needs are the same either.
Our comprehensive trucking fleet insurance program for smaller fleets has the ability to package many of your insurance coverages including auto liability, physical damage, general liability and motor cargo into one convenient policy. Everything is handled in one place at our office, so you won’t have to deal with being transferred to multiple people within different companies.
Most of our trucking fleet insurance carriers will offer safety consulting & seminars and as well as FMCSA compliance at little or no cost to you.
Most small trucking fleet insurance policies will be written on a Scheduled Vehicles basis. Every vehicle that you operate must be reported and listed on your policy. This method eliminates the complexity in premium calculations and also eliminates the potential for premium increases due to higher than expected mileage or revenue. Conversely, if the trucking company has swings in business, i.e. has periods of time when some of its fleet sits, per unit rate wouldn’t be beneficial because the insurance bill is due whether the trucks are in use or not.
We can handle the needs of any larger fleet, from reporting policies to small and larger deductibles and larger self-insured retention programs. We will work with you to help contain costs either through addressing safety and driver issues and designing an insurance program that works. We believe this can only be accomplished by gaining a thorough understanding of your business. You need a partner that not only understands every aspect of your business but can also work with the insurance company underwriters and claims personnel to negotiate the best possible terms and conditions for whatever form your insurance program takes.
Large trucking fleet insurance policies could be written on a different basis. Below is an example of the most often used policies:
Scheduled Vehicles reporting is really good for smaller size fleets where there are only a small amount of vehicle changes. It eliminates the complexity in premium calculations and also eliminates the potential for premium increases due to higher than expected mileage or revenue. Conversely, if the trucking company has swings in business, i.e. has periods of time when some of its fleet sits, per unit rate wouldn’t be beneficial because the insurance bill is due whether the trucks are in use or not.
Mileage-based policies are good if the mileage being driven can be easily verified and are the trucking company is fairly stable. This type policy allows for growth in the number of units without an immediate increase in the premium. Insurance companies will have trouble offering this rating mechanism when a trucker has a lot of owner operators and/or units without mileage being recorded via IFTA reports. Additionally, insurance companies rarely offer this option on fleets smaller than 15 units or fleets that are entirely local haul because they can’t generate enough premium to offset expected losses.
Gross Revenues policy has a specific rate which is applied monthly to the revenues generated for the month. This is a simple method for the trucking business that allows for optimal cash flow as the premium will follow the income, and is advantageous when the fleet is growing and adding units as there is no immediate increase in the premium.
Usually the insurance company is most comfortable with this rating mechanism because a trucking company can ‘fudge’ mileage by not tracking trucks not governed by IFTA (box trucks, interstate hauling only, etc) or by not keeping track of an owner-operator’s miles. A disadvantage to the receipts policy is that ‘non-trucking’ revenue that doesn’t really express an increase or decrease in actual exposure (i.e. fuel surcharges rush fees, etc) could be included in the revenue audit. Your agent should be able to identify and correct the problem in a timely manner.

Top notch organization to deal with for commercial truck insurance. When I thought I had a serious issue aquiring truck insurance, John @ Big Rig expedited things and came thru with top rated insurer for a premuim price almost half of what I was being quoted. Give him a call and let him work his magic. He got my 100% approval!

I have been in the trucking business for about 5 years. I have had 2 other insurance agency’s. I switched to Insure Big Rig about a year ago and hands down this is the best service I have ever received. The products that they offer are over the top. No one else can offer the products that Insure Big Rig provides. Very happy customer.
