Vermont Commercial Truck Insurance
In 2021, there were 412 accidents on Vermont roads involving heavy trucks. Of those crashes, 60 resulted in personal injury, and four involved fatalities.
With road accidents a constant and increasing possibility, it’s vital to understand the requirements for Vermont truck insurance and partner with an independent insurance agent to make sure you and your drivers are protected.
Why do I need Vermont Trucking Insurance?
Insuring your drivers and trucks is legally required. On top of that, it protects your company financially. Here are some numbers to keep in mind:
- $91,000: The average cost of all large truck crashes
- $200,000: The average cost of a crash with injuries (and that average only increases based on the severity of the crash)
- $1,000,000+: The potential cost of a crash if fatalities are involved
Luckily, physical damage coverage protects you from losses, especially when a truck is sidelined for repairs. But as trucking insurance rates continue to rise, it’s crucial to be knowledgeable about things that are required and what your options are.
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.
