What is commercial auto insurance?

Commercial auto, or business auto, insurance policies are similar to personal auto policies but with a few more twists. They are designed to protect the employer and employee during the scope of their work.

When do I need a commercial auto policy?

Some companies allow a few professions to rate their autos as business use on a personal lines policy. Some jobs include realtors, sales people, light duty contractors, and ride-sharing with some companies. 

A commercial auto policy is needed in most other cases. For example, if you deliver goods or provide services, you’ll likely need a commercial auto policy. Also, if the vehicle is registered to a business or employees drive it, you need to insure it on commercial policy. Generally speaking, if you are using your vehicle in the scope of your business, you’ll probably need a business auto policy.
