Rochester Hills Mi Tow Insurance Program – For New Companies.
If your new towing service has been in business for less than two years you should be aware that only a handful of insurance underwriting companies are willing to provide insurance to newer business ventures. But fear not, because we can help you find the coverage you need!
How can you get the best rate on your tow truck insurance even though you’re a new company? Here are a few important steps to take:
- Hire drivers over the age of 25 with clean driving records
- Institute a driver safety program
- Consider whether or not you need full coverage on your trucks
- Pay your premiums in full for the year
- Develop exceptional credit
- Allow Pathway Insurance to shop the market for you
Employing a driver with multiple tickets and accidents will guarantee that you will be paying the maximum amount of money for Tow Truck Insurance in Rochester Hills Michigan.
In fact some companies may not insure you at all if your drivers have multiple tickets and accidents. It’s just not a good idea.
As far as insurance companies are concerned, a poor current driving record might mean a poor future driving record, and nearly all companies take this stance.
Here’s an example of how this can get you: Big Tony just got his new towing business off the ground but he needs to hire drivers fast. He brings on one of the first guys he interviews without looking too deeply into his driving history.
Tony calls up his agent to have the new guy added to his commercial tow truck policy, and his agent does as requested. The underwriting department discovers that Tony’s new driver was issued six different speeding tickets in the last few years and promptly sends a cancellation notice to Big Tony’s Towing.
Tony was so preoccupied with his new business that he didn’t notice the cancellation letter, mistaking it for a confirmation of his new driver being added to his policy.
A few weeks later Tony comes across the notice of cancellation and calls up his agent to figure out what happened. Tony realizes he had been operating for four weeks without insurance. After Tony’s explanation, his agent finds a new company to insure Big Tony’s Towing. Because of the extra premiums required to insure the driver with the bad record, and due to the lapse in coverage, the rate on the new insurance is twenty grand more per year than Tony’s old policy.
So it’s vitally important to recognize that hiring a driver with a poor driving record can have far-reaching effects on your insurance.
