Commercial auto coverage is very similar to personal auto coverage.
Many of the same liabilities covered by personal insurance are covered by commercial.
The major exception between the two types of coverage is eligibility requirements.
If, for any reason, the vehicle you are looking for coverage is driven in a commercial capacity, meaning you transport goods/people for a fee or you typically transport a large value of items, you must obtain commercial vehicle coverage.
A commercial auto insurance policy is required under most circumstances when the vehicle is used for business purposes and meets certain other requirements. It is not just the registration that determines the requirement for a business automobile insurance policy. Other requirements are ownership by a corporation, use in hauling goods for hire and gross vehicle weight of the vehicle.
Even if an organization doesn't own vehicles, it's important to have policies in place for Non Owned and Hired Auto coverage. In most states, there are three different entities who can be sued for damages resulting from a car accident. These three entities are the driver of the vehicle at fault, the owner of the vehicle at fault, and the business or organization that the vehicle was being utilized for at
the time of the accident.
