What is Business Auto Insurance?

Business auto or commercial auto insurance is a type of insurance coverage designed to protect vehicles used for business purposes. It provides financial protection against physical damage and liability for vehicles owned, leased, or used by a business.

Business auto coverage helps mitigate financial losses that may occur due to accidents, injuries, property damage, or other covered events involving the business-owned or operated vehicles. Indemnification under business auto insurance typically includes expenses related to vehicle repairs, medical costs, liability claims, and other covered losses, subject to the terms and limits of the policy.

What Does Business Auto Insurance Cover?

Commercial auto insurance can be customized to include the following types of coverage, tailored based on vehicle types, usage frequency, and business operations:

  • Vehicle Coverage: Covers vehicles owned, leased, or used for business operations.

  • Liability: Similar to personal auto insurance, it pays for injury or property damage caused by the business or its employees.

  • Collision: Pays for repair or replacement if the business vehicle is damaged in a collision.

  • Comprehensive: Protects the vehicle from non-collision events like theft, vandalism, or natural disasters.

  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist: Comes into play if the business vehicle is in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.

  • Medical Payments: Covers medical expenses for driver or passengers, regardless of fault.

  • Hired and Non-Owned Auto: Extends coverage to hired or employee-owned vehicles used for business.

  • Business Interruption: Some policies cover lost income during downtime due to an accident.

  • Cargo Coverage (for commercial trucks): Protects the value of transported goods.
