What is Commercial Trucking Insurance?

Do you have commercial trucking insurance needs? If so, you’ve come to the right place!


There are a lot of options when it comes to commercial trucking insurance. Several agents claim to be experts in the field because they’ve insured a few trucks in town. That’s not the case in London Insurance Agency. Our agents are trucking insurance professionals who will walk with you through the process of selecting the right insurance. 


What is trucking insurance?

Trucks are vehicles that are designed to provide the power and cargo space needed to get things from one place to another. Millions of trucks run down Kentucky’s roads on a daily basis, and these trucks are critical to the economy as they carry goods from one point to another. Thanks to trucking services, towns, cities, and countries get the supplies they need to satisfy the needs of the people. 


Although trucks are generally huge, they’re still not safe from traffic accidents and may pose a financial danger to the companies operating them. This also increases the likelihood of having a claim filed against your business. 


Trucking insurance goes into action the moment a claim is filed. Your insurance lifts the burden of financial loss in the case of an accident while hauling supplies between work sites or shipping products across the country.
