Unladen Trucking Liability Insurance, Why You Need It!

trucker-2946821_960_720Driving deadhead or Bobtail can create a strange situation in where you do not have a load (Dispatched or not), and are liable for anything that can occur on the drive. Since most rigs (The ones with a sleeper cab at least) can cost in the ballpark of $100k or more depending on what bells and whistles you get, you don’t want to be caught up the creek without a paddle if your rig were to get in an accident or cause injury while not hauling any weight, bobtail or deadhead.

truck-driver-614191_960_720Most companies require their contractor drivers to get this type of insurance if they are under contract, and it is beneficial since it fills in the cracks that are in Bobtail Insurance and Non-Trucking Liability Insurance plans–preventing the potential of your insurance company telling you “I’m so sorry but this is not covered, due to X”, with an Unladen Policy you are always covered when not pulling weight!
