Below we have listed a few of our most desirable type coverages. If you do not see a coverage below you need please contact us directly for further information at 570-587-8702.

Primary Auto Liability insurance is required by federal regulations. Every carrier must carry liability insurance on every rig even on leased units. Liability insurance protects you when a third party is injured in an accident.

Non-Trucking Liability insurance pays for an accident when the driver/truck is not under dispatch. The coverage is sometimes referred to as deadhead coverage or bobtail liability.

Occupational Accident Insurance is a work injury protection plan designed to help 1099 paid, independent contractors in the event that they are injured in an on-the-job, trucking-related accident. This type of coverage does not replace workers compensation for those employees who are paid on a W-2.

Physical Damage insurance is coverage for your truck and trailer. Your premium is based on the value of your equipment. Usually a percentage of the value. This coverage is not required by law but if you finance your vehicle the lienholder will require it.

General Liability insurance protects the business for property damage or bodily injury that might occur which does not involve a truck. Examples include the slip and fall exposure at your place of business, advertising related exposures, and/or contractual exposures you may get involved in.

Non-Owned Trailer Liability coverage protects someone else’s trailer you are pulling for liability.

Non-Owned Trailer Physical Damage coverage insures the non-owned trailers in the event of loss.
