Everything You Need To Know About Buying Trucking Insurance In The United States Of America

You’ve decided to go for it. You got a loan for a new semi truck, and you’re ready to travel down your own road as an owner-operator. Congratulations!

You just bought a new semi truck. Congrats!

Now you’re finding out there’s a lot of work to do before you even hit the road. One task you’re probably not looking forward to is buying insurance for your new truck and your new operation.

As an owner-operator, you may be thinking you can just leave everything that has to do with insurance to your broker. That’s what he or she is there for, and you have more important things to worry about, right?


Your broker is certainly a valuable resource, but it’s helpful for you to understand the coverages you will need, just as it’s important for you to understand every other part of your new business.

The last thing you want is to find out in your hour of need that your insurance will not properly cover a loss that you’d expect it to cover because you went with the quickest and cheapest option.
