Commercial Vehicle Insurance

Insurance for Your Commercial Vehicles

Whether your business has one delivery truck or a fleet of company cars, you need commercial vehicle insurance to protect your company from financial liability in case of an accident. But have you considered all the ways your business could be liable? An employee’s quick trip to the office supply store could leave your company on the hook for big medical bills in the event of a serious accident.

Auto Insurance Coverage Required by Florida

The State of Florida requires that all vehicle owners carry a limited amount of property damage coverage and personal injury protection. The amount that you are required to carry, however, is very small: only $10,000 each. You may want to protect your company from the threat of lawsuit for injuries and damages above that minimum.

Recommended Vehicle Insurance Coverage

Several other types of auto and truck insurance coverage are commonly available: 

  • Bodily injury liability (BIL) to protect your company from financial liability should your employee cause an accident resulting in injury or death. 
  • Collision coverage pays for repairs to your company’s business car, truck or other commercial vehicle (forklift, tractor, construction vehicle, etc.) if it is involved in a crash. 
  • Comprehensive coverage pays for damages to vehicles owned by your company that are damaged by some cause other than an accident (such as a flood, theft or fire).

Many companies add a hired auto and non-owned auto option to their policy. It protects the company should an employee get into an accident in their personal vehicle while conducting company business. It also meets the requirement of car rental agencies to have commercial auto coverage so an employee of the company can rent a car for work purposes. It does not cover damage to a rental car.
