Freeway Commercial Truck Coverage
Freeway helps customers customize their coverage to meet their needs. Policies include only the coverage you truly need – nothing more, nothing less.
The company’s insurance quotes typically include rates for the following coverages:
One of the most important types of coverage to have in your commercial truck insurance policy. Liability covers injuries and property damage caused by you or your drivers to third parties.
There are two main types of liability coverage:
- Bodily Injury: Covers the cost of injuries to others in an accident.
- Property Damage: Covers the cost of damage to other people’s property in an accident.
In many cases, fleet owners will be required to have a certain amount of liability coverage to ensure they can cover the cost of damage or injuries. Due to their large size, commercial trucks can cause significant damage.
Commercial trucks should have cargo insurance, which provides financial protection if your cargo is damaged in transport.
Liability coverage only covers the cost of damage to other people’s vehicles or property. But what about your own commercial vehicles? Collision coverage ensures that damages to your commercial truck is covered. It will pay for the cost of repairs to your truck if it is damaged in an accident regardless of fault.
If your truck is damaged in a non-collision accident – such as vandalism, theft or a fire – comprehensive will cover the cost of repairs or replacement.
For-hire drivers will typically need non-trucking liability coverage. It covers liability-related costs if you cause an accident while you are not on dispatch.
Accident-related injuries can result in costly medical bills. Medical payments coverage will cover the cost of these bills if you or your passengers are injured in an accident.
Rental Reimbursement with Downtime
If your truck is being repaired due to accident-related damages, this coverage will reimburse you for the cost of a rental truck or vehicle. It will also cover downtime if you are unable to rent a truck or operate your business while repairs are being made.
Underinsured And Uninsured Motorists
Unfortunately, some drivers don’t have insurance or don’t have enough insurance to cover the cost of repairs. In this case, underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage will protect you from these drivers by providing coverage for your repairs and/or medical bills in an accident.
Many states require this coverage, but even if it’s not required, it’s in your best interest to have it. An estimated 13% of motorists do not have auto insurance.
An additional coverage that’s nice to have, particularly for fleet owners. Non-owned coverage will cover liability if you or an employee are using a personal vehicle for business purposes.
It protects both owned and rented vehicles for this purpose, and it will cover the cost of property damage or medical bills from accident-related injuries.
Specialized Tow Truck Coverages
Freeway Insurance also provides specialized coverage for tow trucks, including:
On-Hook Towing Insurance
An optional coverage that truly is essential for two truck owners. On-hook towing will cover the cost of repairs or replacements if a non-owned vehicle is damaged while you are towing it. This includes damage from theft, collision, explosion, vandalism and fire.
Garagekeepers Legal Liability Insurance
Another optional coverage that is also worth the cost. This insurance will cover the cost of damages to a vehicle in service while it is being stored or parked in a covered location.

A variety of commercial trucks can be covered with a commercial auto insurance policy, including:
- Box trucks
- Tow trucks
