Commercial Auto Insurance Overview

Commercial auto insurance is essential protection for your vehicles, no matter how many you operate. Big or small, your company vehicles require our protection. Commercial auto insurance offers coverage for the physical vehicles we use, their liability, and more so that they can stay on the road and ensure your business operations continue as smoothly as possible.

Third-Party Liability

Should you or your employees be held responsible for damages to someone else ‘s property or causing them serious bodily injury while operating a commercial vehicle, your third-party liability coverage will help offer protection.

Direct Compensation

For your physical vehicles, direct compensation covers damage to your vehicle and what’s included inside of it. This also includes coverage for loss of use in the event of an insured accident. With direct compensation, you deal with your insurance provider for compensation.

Common Endorsements

Every business operates differently, meaning that your coverage needs will vary. If you have one car or a fleet of trucks, you will need varying amounts of coverage to protect you and your commercial operations. You can purchase endorsements to supplement your insurance such as collision, comprehensive and loss of use coverage.

IRCA policies typically include four or less vehicles where fleet policies are typically defined as any policy with 5 or more vehicles registered in a company name. Some fleet policies in Ontario may include an endorsement that automatically covers all vehicles registered in the company name which helps reduce gaps in insurance.  These types of endorsements do not apply to IRCA policies.
