Warren Mi Tow Truck Insurance – Understand Your Coverage 

As I’ve said many times before, it’s important to fully understand your tow truck insurance coverage so that you aren’t left having to pay for a denied claim in the future.

Let’s take a look at this claims scenario to illustrate an example of how knowing about your coverage can save you big by allowing you to avoid doing something that would render your coverage invalid:

Scenario: Ralph W. Emerson owns Walden Towing Services Inc., a small tow truck operation in a rural community. It is well known around town that Ralph is always willing to lend a helping hand to anybody who’s down on their luck or simply turning their backs on society and looking to break away from the world.

After several of these vagabonds turned up over a short period of time, Ralph decides to outfit a storage space in his tow truck business building with a bed and some basic amenities.

A few months later another lost soul named Henry David shows up at Ralph’s door in need of some shelter. Ralph allows him to stay in the makeshift guest room at Walden Towing for a few weeks until Henry decides to rejoin civilization again.

One day Henry’s curiosity gets the better of him and he enters the garage where the tow trucks are kept to get a closer look at the equipment. He accidentally knocks over a large steel tube that had been propped in the corner of the garage, and it lands on the front of one of the tow trucks, shattering the windshield and putting a huge dent in the hood.

“Not to worry,” says Ralph. “I’ve got tow truck insurance.”

Ralph submits a claim and doesn’t give it a second thought. A week later he receives a claim denial, citing the following exclusion in his policy:  

Non-Towing Services

Bodily injury, property damage, or personal or advertising injury arising out of any “non-towing services” or suffered by any person present at the insured’s premises for reasons that, principally, are not related to the conduct of the insured’s towing, roadside assistance, or storage lot operations. For purposes of this exclusion, “non-towing services” means:

(a) any motor vehicle service or repair operations performed at the insured’s location;

(b) conduct of any business that is not a necessary part of the insured’s towing, roadside, or storage lot operations; or

(c) use of the insured’s property for any non-business activities, such as, for example, a residence.

Because Henry was present at the towing premises for reasons that principally are not related to towing, namely using the premises as a residence, the insurance company is not obligated to pay for the damage.
