What kind of insurance do I need to transport cars?

Since every business is unique, each auto hauling business needs a customized insurance plan. Some of the coverages* you may want to consider are:

Auto Liability

Cargo Insurance

Physical Damage Coverage

Collision Insurance

Comprehensive coverage

*These might not be the only coverages that you need for your business, but these are the usual coverages we see for car carriers.

Auto Hauler's Auto Liability

Auto liability insurance can help you cover the costs that you’re legally obligated to pay to someone that your business injures in a car accident. Bodily injury liability can help cover the medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages of the other driver. Property damage liability covers the damage to the person’s car.

Auto Hauler's Cargo Insurance

Cargo insurance protects the load you’re hauling. You’re liable for any damages that happen to the cars while you’re transporting them, but cargo insurance can cover you for losses like theft, fire, and collision.

Auto Hauler's Physical Damage Coverage

  • Collision insurance: Collision insurance is the coverage that can help you repair your auto hauling truck and get it back on the road ASAP if you have an accident and collide with another vehicle or object.
  • Comprehensive coverage: Comprehensive coverage can help you cover the costs of repairs if your truck is damaged by something other than an accident. Comprehensive coverage can protect you against losses like theft, fire, vandalism, and objects that spontaneously fall from the sky (like trees.)
A word about cargo coverage:

If you’re getting cargo coverage for your business, it’s important that you get the right coverage to truly protect your business. Make sure that you have enough coverage and that you know what is and isn't covered by your cargo insurance. Since you're hauling vehicles, this is crucial.
