Box truck insurance generally costs between $2,000 – $40,000 per power unit per year. It’s a huge range, we know, but we give that range without knowing any details about your business – your drivers, your location, your loss history, and so on. Many factors affect your box truck insurance rates, including:

  • Your drivers and their MVRs
  • Your claims/Loss history
  • Tickets
  • The truck/How many trucks you have
  • What you’re hauling
  • How long your business has been around
  • Your location
  • Your driving radius

Your business could be at the lower end of the range that we provided above, or you could be at the higher end. Or you might not be within the range at all. Insurance premiums vary widely from business to business, and that’s why it’s so important to get a box truck insurance quote.
