Information Needed for a Commercial Auto Quote
Have the following items in front of you when you call to get a commercial auto insurance quote for your business:
Your current insurance policy Declarations Page (Dec Page)
You can use your Dec Page ? the page that lists how much and what types of insurance coverage you have ? from whatever type of policy you have now, whether it's a commercial auto insurance policy or a personal auto policy.
We use your current Dec Page to get an idea of your insurance needs and to suggest what insurance options are best for you.
It doesn't matter if this is the first time you're purchasing commercial auto insurance. You can refer to your personal auto insurance policy as a starting point for your commercial auto insurance quote.
Providing your current Dec Page is also proof that you've maintained continuous insurance coverage, which could instantly save you up to 25 percent on your insurance premium.
Driver's license numbers and basic driving histories for all drivers
When you provide driver's license numbers for all drivers on your commercial auto insurance policy, we are able to review their driving records on file with your state's Department of Motor Vehicles and determine the risk factors.
We'll ask you whether the driver has a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) and how long he or she has had the license. In many cases we offer an Experienced Commercial Driver discount that could save you as much as 15 percent on your tow truck insurance.
We'll also want to know the date (month and year) of any accidents or traffic violations, such as speeding tickets, that the driver has encountered in the past three years.
VIN numbers, plus knowledge of each vehicle's features
A VIN number provides information about the type of vehicle you want to insure. If you have extra equipment or safety features installed on your vehicles, including side-impact air bags or anti-theft systems, you can save money on your insurance just for driving a safe vehicle.
What If I Don't Have All of the Requested Information?
The more you know about the vehicles and drivers you want to insure, the more accurate your commercial insurance quote will be.
If you don't plan to purchase your policy immediately, you can substitute the information below to receive a general estimate for commercial auto insurance.
Instead of a Dec Page for a commercial auto insurance policy, you can:
Instead of driver's license numbers for all drivers, you can:
Give us a quick history of any accidents or traffic violations, including speeding tickets, for each driver.
Tell us what you do know about driving histories, even if it's not very much. During your business insurance quote, we also can assume each driver has no accidents or violations and give you a commercial insurance quote based on a clean driving history. Unfortunately, if drivers do have any accidents or violations, the quoted price may be subject to change once we review actual driving histories.
Instead of a VIN number, you can:
Simply provide us with information about your vehicles including the make, model and year.

On-Hook Towing Insurance
On-Hook Towing insurance will pay to repair or replace a vehicle you don't own if it is damaged by a collision, fire, theft, explosion or vandalism while you are towing or hauling.
In Texas and Virginia, On-Hook Towing insurance is called Garage Keeper's Legal Liability insurance. In these two states only, what is actually Garagekeepers Legal Liability insurance is called Storage Location insurance.
Who Needs On-Hook Towing Insurance?
Businesses that offer towing services need On-Hook Towing insurance to protect them while they're hauling vehicles owned by a customer or someone else.
Limits, Deductibles and Other Details
With On-Hook Towing insurance, you must select both a limit and a deductible. The limit is the maximum total amount paid per occurrence for damage done to all vehicles.
The deductible is the amount you will pay out of pocket per occurrence for repairs or replacement of the damaged vehicle before your insurance pays.
On-Hook Towing Insurance Example
A customer's car won't start, so she calls you to pick it up. You're towing it to your shop for repairs and stop to refuel your tow truck.
When leaving the gas station, you take a turn too sharply and accidentally scrape the car you are towing against a low hanging tree branch and rip off the mirror and put a large scratch into the passenger side door.
The $15,000 On-Hook Towing limit with a $500 deductible you selected covers replacing the mirror and repairing damage to the passenger door. You would pay $500 toward the repairs, and your On-Hook Towing insurance would pay the rest.
Exceptions and Restrictions
You must purchase Liability insurance to be eligible for On-Hook Towing insurance.
If one towing vehicle has On-Hook Towing insurance, all towing vehicles insured on the same policy must have On-Hook Towing insurance with the same limits.
On-Hook Towing insurance is only available for the following business types:
