What Is Commercial Fleet Insurance?
Commercial fleet insurance provides liability coverage for all company vehicles in one policy. Company vehicles may include buses, passenger vehicles, and tractor-trailers owned by the business. Personal vehicles owned by employees aren’t covered, even if employees use them for company errands.
Is Fleet Insurance Expensive?
The cost of commercial insurance for fleet vehicles depends on many factors, including employee driving records, the number of vehicles are on the policy, and the level of insurance coverage. King Insurance can create a policy tailored to your business needs that also fits your budget.
Can I Save Money on Commercial Fleet Insurance?
Possibly. Bundling commercial auto insurance with other business insurance policies through King Insurance is one way to reduce premium costs. Discounts may also be available for having GPS devices installed in vehicles, specific payment plans, and more. Your King Insurance agent can explore what discounts are applicable to your commercial fleet.
Tips for Maintaining Your Fleet of Vehicles
The best way to reduce the cost of a fleet of vehicles is with regular maintenance, and turning maintenance into a habit is easy with these tips.
Develop A Preventive Maintenance Schedule
Preventive maintenance, such as brake inspections, oil changes, and regular alignment checks, for a fleet of vehicles can be a hassle if it’s not properly scheduled. Putting vehicles on a maintenance schedule provides your employees with safer vehicles to drive. It also increases the functional longevity of the fleet, postponing the need to replace vehicles.
Encourage Employees to Report Vehicle Issues
The sooner employees who drive the vehicles can report any issues, the sooner maintenance and repairs can be done. Irregular noises, warning lights, and other issues should be reported as early as possible.
Use Technology to Your Advantage
There are many fleet management programs available that track the maintenance schedule of an entire fleet. Most programs and software can be set up to alert you when a vehicle is due for maintenance.
Businesses That May Need Commercial Fleet Insurance
If your business has more than one vehicle or more than one type of vehicle, you need fleet insurance for businesses. With this type of insurance, every vehicle is covered under one policy, allowing you to save on premium expenses without sacrificing coverage. The following are examples of businesses that benefit greatly from fleet insurance.
Catering companies often need multiple vehicles to deliver food to events. Commercial vehicle insurance is important to not only meet state requirements but also protect employees and property in the event of an accident. King Insurance works to keep vehicles and the employees driving them to and from catering events covered!
Companies engaged in door-to-door sales or any other type of canvassing activity related to the business also benefit from this type of coverage. Fleet insurance protects any equipment inside the vehicle, whether it’s en route or parked at the time of the accident. Since door-to-door sales employees drive many miles for the company, commercial auto insurance can safeguard against collisions, uninsured motorists, and other risks to reduce the company’s liability.

King Insurance works with more than 20 different carriers and is able to create custom fleet insurance policies for any rental car company. Contact us today to learn more!
