It's crucial to understand that accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and it's our responsibility to make sure that we're protected.

Don't wait until it's too late. Take action now and protect yourself and your drivers.
Why do I need Vermont Trucking Insurance?
If you are in the trucking business, insuring your drivers and vehicles is not just a legal requirement but a crucial financial safety net. Let's take a moment to consider some numbers that emphasize the importance of trucking insurance:
- Firstly, the average cost of all large truck crashes is a staggering $91,000. That's a significant financial burden for any company to bear.
- Secondly, the average cost of a crash with injuries jumps up to $200,000. And this cost only increases with the severity of the crash.
- Finally, if fatalities are involved, the potential cost of a crash can skyrocket to $1,000,000 or more. It's a terrifying thought, but it's important to be aware of these potential costs.
Fortunately, physical damage coverage can protect you from losses, particularly when a truck is out of commission for repairs. Nonetheless, as trucking insurance rates continue to rise, it's critical to stay informed about the coverage options available and the legal requirements that must be met.
In summary, insuring your trucks and drivers is not only legally necessary but also financially prudent. By securing adequate coverage, you can protect your company's bottom line and ensure the safety of your employees and other drivers on the road.
Why Should I use a Vermont Insurance Agent?
Truck Liability Coverage
Vermont law requires truck drivers to carry a liability insurance policy. The amount you need depends on the type of freight you carry, the size of your truck, and whether you are traveling within the state or over state lines.
Physical Damage Coverage
Physical damage coverage reimburses you for losses to your vehicles. For example, if one of your trucks out of commission due to an accident.
Motor Truck Cargo
Necessary coverage for the commodities that you are hauling. Motor Truck Cargo is typically required by the party who owns the cargo.
Truckers General Liability
Truckers GL is designed to protect your business from damage that might occur when you are not behind the wheel of your truck.
