How it Works
Insurance on Semi Truck FAQs
What Type of Commercial Insurance is Required in Oregon?
If your trucking business is only operating within the State of Oregon (intrastate) then you need to meet these minimum liability limits: $300,000 for household goods liability insurance; $750k for general freight liability insurance; and $5,000,000 for hazardous materials liability insurance. In addition to primary liability insurance, you may require additional coverage such as non-trucking liability, bobtail, or physical damage insurance. Talk with our specialized agents to learn more.
What Does Oregon Commercial Truck Insurance Cover?
While each commercial truck insurance policy is unique, more comprehensive commercial trucking insurance often covers physical damage, auto liability, general liability, cargo insurance, non-trucking liability, non-owned trailer physical damage, non-owned trailer liability, warehouse legal, and terminal coverage. Driver injuries are not usually covered, so you may want to invest in a workers’ compensation insurance policy on top of a commercial trucking insurance policy. You may also want additional coverage to protect valuable cargo or loss of income.
What Factors Determine the Cost of Commercial Insurance?
The cost of commercial trucking insurance varies depending on many factors, including but not limited to your operating location (intrastate vs interstate), the type and value of cargo you’re hauling, the age and condition of your semi-truck(s), the experience and record of your driver(s), your company’s safety rating, and the level of coverage you choose to invest in. Even a minor speeding ticket on your driver’s record could trigger a significant increase in insurance costs. Talk to our agents about how to find and keep affordable rates!
