Making a living on the open road is demanding and full of hazards. Thankfully, there are a number of insurance coverages available designed specifically to help owners and operators of semis and other commercial trucks manage those risks, with physical damage insurance being one of the most important among them.

What does physical damage insurance cover?

Physical damage insurance is a defined grouping of coverages that offer protections similar to standard auto insurance for larger commercial vehicles. The distinction is that physical damage insurance applications are focused on the truck alone, and not the driver or cargo. Coverages include:

  • Collision Coverage that can pay for repairs or replacement of a truck in the event that it sustains damage in an accident by colliding with an object or vehicle or if it rolls or is overturned
  • Comprehensive Coverage expands repair and replacement coverage to situations beyond accidents and collisions such as theft, vandalism, and weather damage
  • Fire and Theft with Combined Additional Coverage (CAC) is similar to comprehensive coverage but more limited in scope with specifically named perils (coverage-triggering events). For this reason, it’s also referred to as “limited comprehensive coverage.”
If you’re a commercial driver, knowing the amount and type of coverage you need can be difficult to determine on your own. You want to ensure you have full financial security for your vehicle, but you also don’t want to waste money by paying for anything that’s unnecessary or by setting your limits too high. Let us make the process easier by connecting you to a qualified insurance professional that can answer your questions and get you the right insurance.
