If you own or operate a dump truck and you are looking to purchase insurance then you have come to the right place. It is highly important that you maintain coverage on your dump truck at all times if it is going to be in use. Whether you own one dump truck or multiple dump trucks we have the right policy for you. As an independent agent we will shop your policy through multiple carriers all at the same time. We have many years of experience in the commercial auto industry and we know what it takes to ensure all of your risks are covered.

As with any vehicle being operated on a roadway it is required that you purchase insurance for your dump truck. Unlike other vehicles being operated, as the owner or operator of a commercial dump truck you will need to purchase commercial auto insurance coverage instead of a normal personal insurance policy. It is required that you purchase a commercial auto policy instead of a personal auto policy because a personal auto policy will not afford coverage to commercial risks. In the event of an accident, the claim would most likely be denied if your vehicle was not properly insured with commercial coverage. Even if you will be using the dump truck for non business use, you should still keep it insured for commercial use in addition to personal use.

Be sure to disclose all types of work and hauling being done with the dump truck or dump trucks that you are insuring. Failure to disclose all risks could result in gaps in coverage, meaning there may be no coverage afforded in the event of a claim. Insurers will determine your premium based off of the type of work performed, in addition to a number of other factors. If they are not charging the increased premium of a certain risk they will most likely not cover it. Be sure you advise one of our trained agents the exact nature of your operations to ensure proper coverage.

If you are the owner of multiple dump trucks then you have come to the right place looking for insurance. Here at Bains and Woodward Insurance we are able to include all of your dump trucks on one commercial policy that will afford the great coverage at a good price. As independent agents we are able to compare multiple carriers side by side all at one time. Once we determine the exact nature of business and the coverage you will be looking for we will compare several of the nationís top carriers against one another looking for the best rates. These carriers are all competing against one another for your business and when carriers compete for your business you save money. Our simple process can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year. In addition to the fantastic savings we offer, you will also save valuable time so it can be spent on the things that matter most like running your business.

As with most auto insurance policies, there are many discounts that are made available to you regardless of commercial classification. The most popular and prominent discount we tend to see is the good driver discount. Any driver who has had less than 2 points on their driving record in a period of three years and has maintained an active license is eligible for this discount. Mandated by state law to be available to all drivers and to be at least a twenty percent savings; the good driver discount can save you hundreds of dollars a year on your dump truck insurance. Unlike personal auto insurance, most commercial auto insurance carriers will offer a discount for carrying continuous coverage on your commercial vehicles. Most carriers will require you submit proof of insurance for the previous 6 months or year before they will provide the discount. This discount can be rather significant so be sure not to let any lapses occur. Often times we will see carriers extend small discounts to their insuredís for being in business for a certain number of years, typically around 5 years or more. Once you have been in business for a certain amount of time the carrier feels you have gained experience and can operate a safer business. Maintaining a clean claims record will help keep policy costs down as well. There may be many more discounts available to you, be sure to ask one of our agents today and see how much you can save.

Be sure you put careful consideration into who will be included on your policy as a driver. A person with a high claims record will most likely increase the cost of your policy rather significantly. Be sure they are safe drivers, just because they donít have tickets or an accident doesnít always mean they are safe drivers. A claim on your record will most likely increase the cost of future policies so be sure you can trust those as drivers on your policy.

Please feel free to give one of our agents a call today, ask online or swing by an office and get your dump truck quote. We have licensed agents standing by waiting to help you start saving on your commercial auto insurance. Be sure to ask an agent about any other opportunities we may have to help you save on your other lines of insurance as well. Also, don't forget to refer your friends.
