How much is Commercial Trucking Insurance in Mississippi?

No two trucks will pay the same price even if they are hauling the same goods. Why? The rating systems that the insurance companies use pull in hundreds of different variables to determine an insurance premium. Trucking Insurance Cost Factors include, your credit score, VIN, driving record, age, etc and this is just to name a few.

An example of a trucking operation we just wrote in 2023, where it was an owner-operator hauling building material with a radius of 100 miles, $50,000 in cargo and $1 million in liability. The total premium for the year $9,378

Insurance Coverage Options

Combined Single Limit (CSL) - CSL is a combination of bodily injury and property damage combined under one limit. This is unlike personal auto insurance where the limits are split between property damage and bodily injury.

Physical Damage - Physical Damage coverage is comprehensive and collision, just like in personal auto insurance. Comprehensive covers to what are referred to as “Natural Events” like weather related incidents and accidents involving animals.

Collision is all other, such as a theft of a vehicle and accidents involving other vehicles and property.

Cargo Liability - Cargo liability is damage to the cargo you are hauling. This type of coverage is not a blanket coverage and you must specify the coverage amount that you are wanting.

Commercial General Liability - This coverage is frequently asked for with building material haulers that also have a forklift attached to the trailer to move the material from the trailer to the jobsite. Since auto liability is only for the truck, General Liability Insurance would be used for the forklift as it operates around the jobsite.

Workers Compensation - Workers Comp is most frequently required for when there are more than just an owner-operator. Workers Comp is designed to pay for employee injuries.
