These policies can be written on specified auto, gross revenue or mileage premium rating method. Selecting the right option for you simplifies your insurance coverage requirements and can reduce the overall cost. Some advantages of a fleet reporter policy are deposit down payment options, any auto symbol and the companies have designated loss control departments to assist you with safety.
