Commercial Auto Insurance

What is Commercial Auto Insurance?

Commercial auto insurance is needed to cover the cars, trucks, and vans used in conducting your business. It also covers drivers, as well as some types of motorized equipment. It provides for bodily injury liability and property damage while operating a company automobile, and medical payments or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) for the driver and passengers of the policyholder’s car.

Commercial auto insurance is a policy of physical damage and liability coverages for amounts, situations, and usage not covered by a personal auto policy. Bodily injury or damage to other vehicles or property caused by you or your employees could create financial issues for your business. There are two different categories of commercial auto insurance – hired/non-owned auto liability, and use of personal vehicles.

  • Hired/Non-owned auto liability: This particular coverage provides business insurance coverage for certain liabilities arising from the use of a rented or leased vehicle (hired), or a non-owned vehicle (employee using their own vehicle on company business). Oftentimes this coverage can be added inexpensively to a business auto policy, or in some cases, a general liability policy.
  • Personal vehicles: Standard auto insurance policies may not cover damage to your privately owned car or truck when it is used for business, even when it’s a business such as selling cosmetics, jewelry, or pizza delivery. It is important to get additional coverage if you are using your own vehicle for business, as this adds an extra level of protection in case something were to happen.
