What is a dump truck?

There are many different types of dump truck. A typical dump truck is basically an open truck bed attached to a frame on a chassis. They use a hydraulic lift to tip the front of the bed of the truck and drop the load on the appropriate spot (the back of the bed has hinges so that it can open to deposit the load.)  Dump trucks are mostly used for construction - they’re used to haul sand, gravel, debris, dirt, and other loads.

What are the recommended coverages for dump trucks?

AutoLiability

Auto liability insurance will help protect your business by covering costs that you’re legally obligated to pay to someone to whom you’ve caused bodily harm or property damage in a car accident.

ComprehensiveCoverage

Comprehensive coverage will help you repair your dump truck if it’s damaged by something other than a car accident - it usually covers fire, theft, vandalism, and falling objects. For instance, if a tree fell on your truck and squashed it, comprehensive coverage would help cover the costs of repair.

CollisionCoverage

Collision coverage will help you get your dump truck back on the road ASAP if it’s damaged in a car accident. If you run a red light and get into a crash with another vehicle, collision insurance would cover the costs of repairing or replacing your vehicle.

TruckersGeneral Liability

GL insurance helps you if you cause someone bodily harm or property damage because of the services your business provides that aren’t directly related to your dump truck.

Non-TruckingLiability

This will help you pay for property damage or bodily injury that you could cause someone while you are not actively dispatched.
