We’re in it for the Long Haul

0 11 October 2016

Your Long Haul trucker needs a commercial auto policy that provides the right coverage and radius that give the security they expect for a successful operation.

Why should a trucker worry about radius restrictions and improper coverages when we can place them with one of our many Long Haul markets? We even have Long Haul options for new ventures.

Great pricing! Great coverage! Great reputation!

Get it all at Interstate. See what we can do for your trucker clients.

We’ve been helping truckers since 1970.

I came across a recent post on Facebook from a frustrated trucker. It said:

“I monitor 18 gauges, 12 warning lights, and 9 mirrors. It takes me 10 times as long as you to get up to highway speed and 20 times as long as you to stop. I have special laws to learn and memorize. There are thousands of special law enforcement officers whose sole purpose is to keep me from screwing up. I operate 2 dozen various valves, switches, and controls. I do all of this while you drive like an idiot behind me, in front of me, and on the side of me. I leave my family and friends behind and live in a box so that you don’t have to run out of toilet paper. So don’t curse me—THANK ME. “ 

That post, to me, is where the rubber meets the road. How fortunate we are to be in this business. How blessed we are to know these brave men and women who are out there in all kinds of weather and traffic to see that shelves are stocked in every store in America.

So today, thank a trucker.

Many insureds are being required to carry umbrella/excess liability coverage by contract or perhaps just for piece of mind. We have several excellent markets to help you round out that account. Often umbrella/excess coverage is the last piece to get quoted and quick turn-around time is essential. In order to provide quick turn-around, please provide us with a complete submission which includes the following items:

  • Acord application (Acord 125 and 131) completed in entirety especially years in business, requested limits, payroll, receipts, underlying carrier, dates, limits and premium. Be sure to provide full details on the applicant’s exposure.
  • 5 year currently valued CGL, Auto and EL loss runs
  • Expiring umbrella carrier, limit and premium (if applicable)
  • Vehicle schedule
  • Auto and CGL quotes (or policies if already issued)
  • If the risk is a contractor, we need a contractor supplement.
  • If the risk is trucking, we need to know what they are hauling, how far and for whom. We also need a trucking supplement.

We will provide you with the best pricing and best service. Please help us to help you.
