Every risk in Commercial Trucking Insurance is different. Depending on the commodity hauled, distance traveled, and/or type of business, will have an influence on the overriding premium. Household Goods Movers is a class of business that has several factors that affect the premium. In general, local Movers will pay a lower rate than a Long Distance mover. Why? Greater the distance, greater the chance of a claim occurring, which in turn drives up the premium. But what if you do a mixture of both local and long distance moving? If you do a mixture of both local and long distance household goods moving then you could qualify for significant discounts based on the percentages of short and long haul. Also, more insurance carriers could be available which will drive down costs.
That’s why working with an insurance agent that has the expertise in Commercial Trucking Insurance is crucial for getting the right coverage at the most competitive rate.
We recently worked with a client that specialized in local household goods moving, but needed interstate filings. His office was located near a state line and his current policy did not offer DOT interstate filings. This meant he had to work only in the boundaries of his state. We were able to find him a lower premium, with higher cargo coverage, and let him operate within a 500 mile radius that included DOT interstate filings. This resulted in the client saving money and increasing his revenue because he wasn’t tied to the state boundaries!
