Truck FleetAny business with a trucking or delivery component needs high quality and affordable trucking insurance. This type of business insurance can be one of the most important investments you make. If something were to cause a breakdown of your vehicle, would you be able to keep your business operational? Could you afford to repair or replace the truck quickly? With the right type and amount of insurance, you can reduce this financial risk. Yet, finding the ideal policy requires choosing a policy that fits your budget. To accomplish this blend of affordability for customized coverage, consider the following tips.

Check Your Driving Record


A key way to reduce your trucking insurance costs is to ensure that your employees have a good driving record. If you are a company with a large number of trucks, it's important to stress safety with your crew. Avoiding accidents and moving violations is critical to keeping your costs in line.

Seek Out Association Rates


Another step trucking companies can take to help reduce costs is to align themselves with associations. Associations are not always available, depending on your specific business; still, if you can obtain association rates, chances are good you'll save some money in the process. Always ask your independent insurance agent about these discounts.

Enforce Your Safety Policy


If you want to reduce insurance costs, you'll also need to have a safety policy in place within your organization that protects your drivers. In short, you need to clearly outline — and ensure that your employees follow — the requirements of not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It's also important to have policies in place for your drivers in relation to accidents. What happens if someone is involved in numerous accidents?

In addition to these tips, your business can save on trucking insurance by increasing the deductible, reducing how often you pay your premium and/or having a stellar record on compliance requirements and regulations — including Department of Transportation roadside inspections, safety audits and compliance checks. These steps can help show your insurance provider that you are a responsible owner/operator and a lower risk to them, which can reduce your premium.
