Needing commercial car insurance is a question which small business owners face all the time. Do I need it or can I just continue with my normal coverage? The answer is yes, you do need it for your business car.
Commercial insurance protects a small business owner when it comes to accidents. It protects their business as well. Legally speaking, some personal insurance companies will not cover your business vehicle. The difference between a business vehicle and a personal vehicle is its purpose. Commercial vehicles are only used for traveling related to work, which really means travel to and from work as well as job related travel.
Commercial car insurance rates are usually lower than personal car insurance and it also covers any driver related to the company. This means that the car can be used by any employee of the company on this company policy.
To find the best rates on commercial insurance, it is best to compare car insurance company’s quotes. You can get this simply by entering the model, year, and make of your company’s car into most auto insurance websites. Comparing quotes will allow your company to select the best quote as well as the best coverage for what you need. (see each state’s laws for more information on insurance requirements for commercial vehicles.)
These simple steps will help your small business, or large business, grow and flourish with the best car insurance possible. The three things to keep in mind is that as a small business owner you are better protecting your business as well as yourself from third party claims, you can lower your rates by adding on more than one company car to this insurance policy, and that insurance rate quotes are fast and simple to find online.
