TrueNorth specializes in lowering risk for businesses and providing commercial insurance, especially for transportation companies or owner-operator truckers. After getting a quote, find out how this company stacks up to other commercial insurers for the best protection.

What types of insurance does TrueNorth offer?

TrueNorth provides a variety of policies for both businesses and individuals, but the company’s specialty is business insurance. Business products it offers:

  • Bonds
  • Commercial auto
  • Cyber liability
  • Directors and officers liability
  • Employee benefits
  • Employment practices liability

You can also get personal policies and services, like:

  • Auto

  • Home
  • Health

Which types of businesses does TrueNorth work with?

The company has 25 years of experience helping the transportation industry, which makes up over 40% of its business. But TrueNorth covers several types of businesses, including:

  • Construction
  • Law firms
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical practices
  • Owner-operator trucking
  • Social services agencies
  • Transportation

Which insurers does TrueNorth work with?

TrueNorth doesn’t provide information about their insurance partners. That leaves customers relying solely on agents to find the best coverage for them, a possible problem for customers who like a bit more control.

TrueNorth reviews and complaints

TrueNorth needs more customer ratings to make a solid decision on the experience you’ll receive. Of the reviews we found on social sites, customers gave mixed reviews for customer service.

Multiple customers praised TrueNorth on Google for its knowledgeable customer service and helpful policies, like its owner-operator insurance. However, others had trouble with slow service, unreturned phone calls and billing issues.

Google had a high overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Facebook saw a handful of five-star reviews for the overall company, but customers left no comments for context.

The company does have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), although no customer reviews. Social sites can give you a peek at TrueNorth’s service, but clear reviews with the BBB, Trustpilot or another reputable site would give more authority and reliability.
