When it comes to sending valuable vehicles, liability issues become one of the major concerns. Different types of insurances serve as securing potential loss and reducing the risks taken. Auto transport companies have to fulfill valid insurance regarding their transportation operations.
Your personal insurance sometimes can also offer auto transport coverage, but make sure to ask specifics of your policy from your insurance agent.
3 types of coverage you need to know about
First is customer insurance, but usually you do not need personal insurance to ship your car. Second one is Carrier insurance. Every carrier must have insurance that can cover damage to your car. And third one is broker insurance. It is not required to provide but some brokers, like our company, can offer such a coverage.
However you need to know what insurance policy covers. Insurance policy of the transport companies typically cover damage that can occur while your vehicle is loaded, while the vehicle is in transit or when unloading the vehicle. Another damage, for example caused by a car poor shape such as loose parts or oil leaking is customer responsibility.
