PROTECTING YOUR COMMERCIAL OR BUSINESS AUTO – FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS COMMERCIAL AUTO INSURANCE?
Commercial auto insurance provides bodily injury, property damage, personal injury protection, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. These coverages are required by Minnesota law. Optional coverages are comprehensive & collision. These coverages are all very similar to personal auto insurance in Minnesota.
Bodily Injury Liability
If you do bodily injury or cause death in an auto related claim or pedestrian, this protection can help pay those costs. The minimum liability limits in Minnesota are $30,000 limit per person and $60,000 per accident or 30/60. We recommend $100,000 per person and $300,000 per occurrence, 100/300 or higher.
Property Damage Liability
If you are in an auto accident that happens to be your fault, this coverage helps pay for property damage. This property damage may be to vehicles, homes, buildings and other structures. The minimum limit in Minnesota is $10,000. We recommend $100,000 or higher. Think about the price of new vehicles these days.
Personal Injury Protection
PIP is Minnesota’s No-Fault coverage. Originally designed to free up the courts, this coverage means each insurance company pays for their own medical bills. The minimum in Minnesota is $20,000/$20,000 or $40,000 combined. $20,000 for medical and $20,000 for wage loss, disability or funeral costs. If you are on the job at the time of the accident and are covered by workers compensation insurance, workers comp pays first.
If you’re in an accident that is not your fault, Uninsured motorist coverage/UM helps pay medical expenses. The other party needs to be at fault and not have liability insurance. The minimum in Minnesota is 25/50. $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. We recommend $100,000 per person & $300,000 per occurrence, 100/300 or higher. This coverage can benefit you. So, the more coverage the better!
If you’re in an accident that is not your fault, underinsured motorist /UIM helps pay for medical expenses. The other party needs to be at fault and not have enough liability insurance protection. The minimum in Minnesota is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident (25/50). We recommend $100,000 per person and $300,000 per occurrence (100/300) or higher. This coverage can benefit you. So, the more coverage you have the better.
Helps pay for repairs or replacements from things like, fire, theft, deer, birds, animals, glass, etc. In Minnesota you can remove the deductible by adding full glass coverage. This can depend on the carrier and type/size of auto.
Helps pay for necessary repairs or replacement (totaled) if your vehicle is damaged in an accident. Most claims occur when the vehicle is in motion. However, if your auto is parked and struck by a moving auto, that is collision coverage too. Common examples would be someone hitting your vehicle in a parking lot and not leaving a note. Also, hitting your vehicle and having no insurance. So, you file a claim under your own insurance policy.
HOW MUCH DOES COMMERCIAL AUTO INSURANCE COST IN MINNESOTA?
The cost can vary depending on numerous factors, the type of vehicle, driving record(s), coverage, claims history, etc.
Smaller commercial auto owners might see $400-600 per year for one vehicle. Full coverage you could expect $700-1,200 per year. Give us a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Larger vehicles such as a new tow truck, garaged in Minneapolis, MN or St. Paul, MN, might see costs at $4,000-$5,000 per year. Tow trucks in the suburbs, rural areas and older units are lower cost. Having 2-3 years of prior insurance and good driving records & claims history can be very important in this situation. By the way, we are Minnesota tow truck and wrecker insurance experts.
