Non-Trucking Liability/Bobtail Insurance

Trucking Professionals Should Seek Professional Insurance Help

As a trucker, you’re a big part of what keeps American industry going. Wolpert Insurance knows that New England truckers don’t always have it easy, but we can take some of the load off by providing dependable coverage that will put your mind at ease.

Bobtail Vs. Non-Trucking Liability: Understanding The Difference

Your rig is likely covered when you’re hauling something, but is your liability covered for the times you’re not on dispatch or carrying a load, like in between pickups? Truckers refer to using a truck without its trailer as “bobtailing” or “deadheading,” and you often need special insurance for this instance.

Our non-trucking liability insurance on the other hand will make sure that you are fully protected when you’re using your vehicle completely outside of work. For instance, if you’re picking up supplies for some home renovations, non-trucking liability would cover you. Depending on your employer and other factors you may need bobtail, non-trucking, or both. An experienced member of our staff will help you figure out just what you need from your trucking insurance.

An Independent Agency Is The Way To Go

Many owner-operators are required by their motor carrier to have non-trucking liability insurance, but where you get it from really matters in a specialized industry like trucking. When you get insured through a giant corporation, you run the risk of getting a one-size-fits-all policy. At Wolpert Insurance, we know that your truck is your livelihood, which is why we’ll only get bobtail coverage from providers who know how to handle the particular needs of the transportation industry.
