Additional truck insurance coverage options
After obtaining basic owner-operator truck insurance coverage, there are a number of additional options to consider. Choose one or more of these options to fill any holes in your safety net and protect your business and drivers from specific perils:
Trailer interchange: Driving under a trailer interchange agreement could leave you at risk. This additional coverage protects against any physical damage during this driving situation.
Long-haul trucking: Extended trucking may leave you without coverage. If you’re a super-regional or nationwide truck owner-operator, your policy should include this coverage.
