Fleet Insurance

If your business owns and operates three or more vehicles as part of its daily operations, you may be eligible for a fleet insurance policy. These plans resemble a commercial auto policy that covers many vehicles at the same time, helping you to meet coverage requirements at an affordable rate.

Industries that can benefit from fleet insurance coverage include:

  • Government agencies
  • Construction companies (including those with large construction vehicles like bulldozers)
  • Taxi services
  • Vehicle rental companies
  • Delivery services
  • Any other company that operates a fleet of vehicles

As of 2013, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics found that there were over eleven million fleet vehicles in service, with government and rental use seeing the most growth over the years.

Fleet Insurance Features: Commercial Auto Insurance

Commercial vehicle policies are a major part of fleet insurance, and they cover the vehicles themselves against damage and loss.

In most cases, fleets that focus on services (handymen, locksmiths, and similar professions) will see the largest discount on their premiums. Vehicles used for retail work, such as delivering food or flowers, usually see a more moderate reduction in premiums. Finally, companies that ship either people or large volumes of products see the lowest reduction, simply because there tends to be more damage in a collision. The current average is more than $20,000 for each incident, and since fleet drivers tend to be on the road far more than the average person, there’s a greater likelihood of a collision sooner or later. However, this is when having the proper insurance coverage becomes invaluable.

What's Covered by Fleet Insurance

The main component of fleet insurance is its blanket coverage of vehicles and employees—any employee will be insured while driving any vehicle in your fleet unless they've been specifically excluded from the policy. This is ideal for companies where vehicles frequently have different drivers, as well as companies that have vehicles out on the roads on a regular basis. All fleet insurance policies will meet or exceed the minimum amount of coverage required for commercial vehicles in your area.

If you're not sure whether a vehicle you use qualifies for coverage under a fleet policy (for example, you have a privately owned vehicle that's also used for business purposes), talk a Texas Risk Solutions agent and they'll let you know if your vehicle is eligible.

I want to take a moment to tell you how happy I am with the service you guys provide. I was pretty cynical going into this based on my past experiences. You have not only raised my expectations you have even exceeded those you raised. Your quick responses and optimistic attitude have just been a pleasure to experience. Ashley has been a great asset to me as I can send it and forget it with her; She has been amazing to work with. Last but not least, the Christmas Gift. I have gotten used to a stupid paper calendar from my insurance agents in the past but again you have raised the bar beyond expectation. My wife is now a candied pecan addict and I have you to thank for it. I hope you and your team have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!! I look forward to many years together as we grow.
