Who needs commercial truck insurance?

If you own a trucking business, you need a commercial truck insurance policy. Valid insurance is important for all trucking companies, whether they're just starting or have been around for a while. Truck insurance is necessary to meet both federal and state regulations and can help pay for future events such as accidents or fires that damage the truck or its cargo.

What types of commercial truckers do we insure?

We offer truck insurance for different types of drivers:

Owner-Operators Under Permanent Lease to a Motor Carrier

If you work for a company, they usually provide basic liability insurance while you are hauling. You can add extra protection like coverage for personal use and damage to your truck.

State and Federal Filings for Commercial Truck Insurance

Navigating the world of insurance filings is essential for many types of commercial drivers, including truckers. At GEICO, we simplify the process to ensure your business is compliant with state and federal regulations.

What Are Insurance Filings?

Insurance filings are documents that prove to state or federal regulators that you have the right insurance coverage for your commercial vehicle, including trucks. They show that you have liability insurance and cargo insurance with at least the required minimum limits. These filings guarantee protection for others involved in accidents where you are legally responsible.

Federal and State Filings:

Depending on your trucking business, you may need federal or state insurance filings. Most businesses involved in interstate transportation, not just truckers, must file federal documents under the FMCSA. These filings include a federal financial responsibility endorsement.

Many states also require their own filings. GEICO can help you navigate these requirements and take care of the paperwork for you.

Understanding whether you need federal, or state financial responsibility filings is important for your business. You can find resources online, like the FMCSA's website, to help you determine your filing needs. GEICO is here to assist you in finding the right information and ensuring your filings are in order.
