Expert review

This broker pairs fleet owners or owner operators like you with an insurance company to match your individual needs. Plus, Western Truck can take the wheel for permits and DOT compliance, leaving you with less paperwork and more road time. However, if you prefer online policy management you may want to review other options.

What commercial truck insurance coverage does Western Truck offer?

Western Truck offers a host of standard and specialized coverage options through its partners, and you’ll be matched based on your needs.

Standard coverage includes:

  • General liability. Broad liability protection for injuries or property damage caused by customers or clients using your products or services.
  • Truck liability. Shield other drivers on the road from injuries or property damage caused by your trucks.
  • Collision. Safeguard your trucks from accident damage to get the repairs needed.
  • Comprehensive. Cover noncollision events like storm damage with either broad or specified perils coverage. May include towing reimbursement.
  • Property damage. Protect your business property from accident damage.
  • Lost income. Don’t lose money while you’re waiting for vehicle repairs.
  • Trailer interchange. Take responsibility for damage your truck causes while changing to a non-owned trailer.
  • Motor truck cargo. Pay for cargo if it’s lost or damaged while in transport.
  • Trucking pollution. This liability coverage pays for damage caused by hazardous material you’re carrying.
  • Trucking crime. While typically covered under motor truck cargo, this coverage accounts for employee crime in policies that exclude this type of theft.
  • Workers compensation or occupational accident injuries. Aid your truckers if they get injured on the job, or buy injury coverage as an owner-operator.
  • Commercial equipment. Get protection for property not covered under commercial property insurance, like backhoes or forklifts.
  • Trucking bonds. Make sure you and your insurer hold up both ends of your contract, or either party can file a claim for reimbursement.
  • Unlimited roadside assistance. Keep your trucks chugging along with roadside protection for:
    • Concierge transportation while truck is out of service
    • Flat tires or tire replacement
    • Fuel delivery
    • Jumpstarts
