WHAT DO WE OFFER MOST?  STABILITY

Because commercial auto is all we do, we can’t afford to change our minds about it every few years. If you have ever had to move your policy to another company because your old company decided trucking wasn’t for them anymore, you’ll know why we value stability. You won’t be canceled or nonrenewed just because you hit a deer, or had one not-at-fault accident.  The following are the coverage highlights and specifics of our program:

Benefits

Family

According to the FMCSA, U.S. traffic deaths in the first six months of 2017 were down 1% from the same period in 2016.  However, the first half of 2016 saw a 10.4% increase over the previous year.  2016 experienced the biggest increase in traffic fatalities on U.S. highways in 50 years.  Having the right amount of insurance doesn’t just keep you legal.  Now, more than ever, without proper coverage your assets, including your business’s or family’s future, could be at risk.

Financial

Truck-related accidents are costly. We pay for some things like legal expenses for covered losses that are over and above the limit on your policy. These expenses can be as high as the claim itself. How much is this protection worth?

Medical

We live in a health conscious nation. Ever think how your peace of mind affects your health? Driving a truck isn’t easy and staying safe behind the wheel is a full time job. No one wants to have an accident but, if one happens to you, we’ll do our best to get you back on the road as soon as possible with the coverage you’re required to have backed by the experience to get the job done.
