A question that many Texas and Colorado businesses ask when they call Main Street Independent Insurance in Ft. Worth, TX, "Does commercial insurance cover the autos used in the line of duty?" Short answer: No, Commercial auto insurance does.
The difference between commercial insurance and commercial auto
The slightly longer answer is that this is generally going to be all part of the same package. It’s possible to buy your commercial insurance from one group and your commercial auto insurance from another, but you’ll probably save yourself some time and effort and have one less bill to keep track of each month if you buy both through the same provider.
Before you ask: Commercial auto insurance isn’t enough. Even if you do your work exclusively on the road, driving a truck, running a delivery service, or being a form of transportation, you’re probably going to need commercial insurance in addition to your commercial auto insurance. If someone slips and falls at your home, and they can prove that you have a home office for your business, then you’ve got a commercial insurance case on your hands, not a commercial auto insurance case. If you run a business, you need a commercial insurance policy. If your business involves driving, then you need a commercial insurance policy and a commercial auto insurance policy.
If there’s anything else you need to know, or you’re ready to get covered, give Main Street Independent Insurance a call and see what we can do for you. You can’t run a business without getting some coverage to keep you safe out there, whether or not you’re on the road. So stay safe and stay covered.
