Many businesses are exposed to the financial consequences of their ownership, use or maintenance of vehicles used in their operations. Most coverage needs can be handled by a business auto policy (BAP) or similar form which cover operations such as:

·        Product or food delivery

·        Transporting business products to wholesalers or retailers

·        Retail product delivery to consumers

·        Carrying persons for short, intermediate or long distance routes

·        Picking up customer items for cleaning, repair, storage, etc.

Coverage is flexible. It may be purchased as a separate policy or as part of a package of coverage that can also protect buildings and business property (equipment, furniture, etc.). A BAP generally offers:

Liability Coverage–protection for physical injury to other persons or their property because of an accident related to your covered vehicle, including legal defense cost or expense.

Comprehensive Coverage–handles loss from any cause except collision. A limited, less expensive option is available. It only protects against a set of specific causes such as fire, lightening, explosion, vandalism and several others

Collision–takes care of damage from crashes with another object or overturn of the vehicle

Towing And Labor Costs–handles expenses for moving disabled vehicles

Loss of Use/Rental Vehicle Coverage–if you damage a rental car, this option helps to reimburse the rental company for income it loses because the vehicle is out of use. Also, there may be limited coverage for injury or damage that you cause to others while using a rented vehicle anywhere in the world.

Typically, a business auto (or similar form) bars coverage for the following:

·         any injury/damage that you expected or intended

·         responsibility for damage you assume under a contract

·         losses that should be handled by a Workers Compensation, Disability Benefits or Unemployment Compensation Law

·         Bodily Injury to an employee caused by a Fellow Employee

·         Damage to property that is in your Care, Custody and Control

·         Any bodily injury or property damage that occurs because of Pollution

·         Any loss that is related to racing, demolition or stunts

Are you protected against business auto losses? Drive over and discuss your situation with an insurance professional. The trip will be worth it.
