South Carolina Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial Auto Insurance provides Liability and Property Damage coverage for your Business’s vehicles, such as cars, trucks, and vans, that are used in your Business’s operations. Vehicles that you use for your Business require a different type of policy than your personal vehicles as they’re typically exposed to more risk than your personal vehicle.
Electing not to cover your Business’s vehicle with a Commercial Auto policy can cost your Business, big time! in 2011, accidents involving a commercial vehicle cost Americans $87 billion, according to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
What does Commercial Auto Insurance cover?
A Commercial Auto Insurance policy does not differ too much from a personal insurance policy when it comes to types of coverage available to you. A Commercial Auto policy is going to cover the accidental damage or the bodily injury costs that occur while driving a company vehicle for Business purposes.
A Commercial Auto Insurance policy can cover:
- Auto Liability Coverage for damage you or your employees cause to another person or their property
- Medical Payment Coverage for bodily injuries you or your employees suffer during an accident
- Physical Damage and Collision Damage for repairs to your vehicle
- Uninsured Motorist Coverage to pay for damages caused by those without insurance
- Underinsured Motorist Coverage to pay for damages caused by those without enough coverage
What will a Commercial Auto policy not cover?
If you have employees who drive their personal vehicles Business errands, such as delivering a product, purchasing supplies for the office or any other Business related errand than you have another liability that’s not covered by a Commercial Auto Insurance policy. Even though there is no coverage for this, your Business can still be held accountable for the damage your employee causes.
If you have any employees who drive their personal vehicle for Business purposes then you need a Hire and Non-Owned Auto Insurance policy in addition to the Commercial Auto Insurance.
