To add a vehicle to your policy, you’ll need to specify what type it is.

Types of Vehicles

Most likely, you’re adding a “private passenger vehicle” (car, SUV, pickup truck, or minivan) for your own personal use (e.g., commuting to work or school, running errands, or leisure). When you add or remove a vehicle, the default selection for the Vehicle Type question will be "Private Passenger" because this is the most common scenario. If you are adding a different type of vehicle (such as a motorcycle, ATV, RV, trailer, mobile home, boat, personal watercraft, snowmobile, commercial auto, or antique/classic/collector car), select that vehicle type from the drop-down list. Some vehicle types will require assistance from an agent or a different type of insurance policy.

Vehicles for Business Use

In the case of a private passenger vehicle (car, SUV, pickup truck, or van) that will be used for business purposes (some examples below), you may need commercial auto insurance. Commercial auto insurance is often used by:

  • Electricians, plumbers, and HVAC professionals
  • Carpenters, painters, and other contractors
  • Landscapers and plow services
  • Caterers and food vendors
  • Other business types, like real estate and sales

Adding any type of vehicle that will be used for a ridesharing or delivery services like Uber, Lyft, Amazon Flex or Grubhub will require rideshare insurance. You can learn more about rideshare insurance by calling (800) 207-7847.
