Independent Owner Operator Truck Insurance Under Permanent Lease
As an independent driver leased to a carrier, the carrier probably provides the majority of your liability insurance coverage. However, you may need to purchase your own physical damage insurance and liability insurance for when you drive your truck on your own time.
While some employers may offer to provide these additional insurance coverages, you can often get a better deal by purchasing them yourself. Plus, you'll be able to make choices to customize your policy to your needs and know exactly how much protection you're getting.
What Owner Operators Trucking Insurance Coverage Is Right For Me?
As an owner operator, your insurance needs are complex. If you are operating under your own authority you will need to carry your own primary liability insurance. And if you are working for another motor carrier, your coverage need will be determined under a lease agreement.
It's important to note that the motor carrier's commercial auto liability insurance may not cover you when you're not under dispatch. You will need Non-Trucking Liability insurance coverage to protect you when you're driving your truck for personal use.
In either case, you will need to provide physical damage coverage your most valuable asset - your truck.
At mybigrig.com we have you covered. We offer all of the owner operator trucking insurance coverages you'll need, as well as knowledgeable service representatives to answer any questions you have - all at great rates.
