If you are already an owner-operator or a commercial truck owner, you need to speak with an insurance agent who will help you select a company that will insure your truck and help you settle on a policy that will meet every last one of your needs. When you are searching for insurance, you want to find an agent who specializes in commercial or owner operator truck insurance in North Carolina.
You should do all of your research and homework before you buy any kind of insurance, right? True, but we understand that truckers do not have that much time to spare. However, if you take the following advice you will save yourself plenty of time, hassles, frustrations, and quite a bit of money as well.
What Company Will Be Right For You?
Insurance companies are not all the same. The companies that insure drivers, trucks, and carriers do not all sell their insurance the same way. Some may work through independent insurance agents and others will use their own salespeople. Companies will specialize in a variety of niches.
You will want to buy insurance from an insurance company who has a specialty in truck insurance. If you buy insurance from a company that does not specialize in the insurance you need, the company will not know all of the ins and outs of the trucking and owner-operator regulations. Whatever rules and guidelines apply to you as a trucker, a specialist will know the right questions to ask regarding the type of coverage you will need.
When you think you have narrowed down a search of insurance providers, you should create a scale of different factors and determine who will be the best for you. You can base your scale on these factors:
- How much experience does the insurance company have?
- What kind of coverage does the insurance company offer?
- How much will it cost to have basic coverage and additional coverage?
- Does the insurance company have enough financial strength to cover the claims?
- Will it be worth my time and money to buy insurance from this company
