Common Myths About Commercial insurance, and the Truth Behind Them
Myth: Using your personal car part-time for side jobs doesn’t require commercial insurance.
Fact: If you use your car for business more than one day a week, you need commercial auto insurance, because your personal policy might not cover you. A commercial policy gives you a wider range of protection and peace of mind.
Myth: Commercial policies are too expensive.
Fact: Commercial policies can end up being cheaper than personal policies due to some discounts and rating factors not available for personal policies.
Myth: There’s no point in paying for a higher limit. Personal policies are already sky high.
Fact: Commercial policies don’t necessarily cover a higher limit, but they offer a wider range of coverage. Even if the liability limit is the same, your commercial policy offers protection in both personal and commercial use of the vehicle, whereas personal policies only cover you during personal use.
Myth: If your vehicle is registered to you and not your business, you can’t get a commercial policy.
Fact: The vehicle does not need to be registered to your business for a commercial policy. Many people use their personal vehicles commercially, so they need to properly insure that car!
