GAIN Insurance Gets You Lower Tow Truck Insurance Costs
Gain Insurance Truck Insurance agents are licensed and certified throughout the country and can optimize your policy to the coverage levels required by your state. Our agents can also help you pick the best policies for your business. We’ve covered independent tow truck drivers, small business tow truck companies, large garages and even non-towing businesses like mechanics and car dealerships that utilize towing vehicles intermittently.
Our agents can also help towing businesses save on their premiums by bundling insurance policies for their other commercial vehicles and business operations.
Tow Truck Insurance Coverage
There are a few insurance coverages specific to tow trucks that most states will require for operation. These include garage keepers insurance and on-hook towing. You can choose to add on to your minimal required coverage in order to protect against damage to your own towing vehicles regardless of fault.
Garage keepers insurance provides protection for customer’s vehicles should anything occur while they are parked in your auto repair shop, garage, or stored anywhere on your business property. If any customer vehicle should get damaged during specified business operations, this coverage protects the policyholder from liability.
On-hook towing provides insurance coverage if an accident or damage occurs to customer’s vehicles while in tow. Policy holders are protected from costs associated with damaged customer vehicles during normal tow truck business operations.

Auto Liability insurance is the most basic form of our commercial truck insurance. Similar to our other common auto insurance policies, this liability insurance is the core of any truck insurance policy and is intended to protect injuries to other people and damages to property that may result from accidents on the road.
In many cases, primary trucking liability insurance is the only type of truck insurance required by Federal law. Every truck driver operating on the highway in the United States is required to carry proof of financial responsibility in the form of primary trucking liability insurance.
Remember that auto liability insurance is designed to be just that – the most minimalist form of truck insurance allowed by law. Be aware when crafting your commercial truck insurance policy with an agent that primary liability will not cover damage to your own vehicle.

Motor Truck Cargo
Gain Insurance agents can help you get the motor truck cargo insurance you need, no matter what type of freight or regulated materials you’re hauling. There’s lots of variety when it comes to cargo insurance because freight that commercial trucks carry can vary from dry goods to hazardous materials.
Cargo insurance isn’t always required by law, depending on the capacity your business is running. But most customers in the shipping industry will demand it, even for general freight or dry goods.
More specialized cargo insurance exists for fragile or perishable cargo such as that transported by reefer (refrigerated trailers) or hazardous materials (hazmat) like toxic or explosive gas and liquids.
Minimum coverage amounts for these types of cargo is typically mandated by state or federal regulations.
