Truckers Insurance Florida Freight forwarders and Freight Agencies Insurance Description of operations: Freight forwarders and freight agencies organize the shipment of freight from its initial pickup at the shipper's location through final delivery at the receiver's location. Transportation of the cargo from point to point can include various modes of transportation such as trucks, railroads, aircraft and watercraft, with warehousing at some point along the route. Freight forwarders may combine shipments from several customers into one. Services may be limited to domestic shipments or include international operations.
Truckers Insurance Florida Truck Insurance Florida Garbage Collectors Description of operations: Garbage collectors pick up trash from residential and/or commercial customers along established routes and transport it to an approved landfill. Some operate under a contract with a municipality where the municipality provides the vehicles and the collection firm supplies the labor, including supervision. Some contract with businesses and residents or a governmental entity, and use their own employees and vehicles to deposit trash at a landfill owned by others. Still others provide complete services for municipalities, including vehicles, personnel and landfill operations. This narrative does not discuss landfill operations.
Truckers Insurance Florida Moving Company Insurance Florida Description of operations: Furniture movers are trucking operations that transport furniture and household goods from the initial loading and pickup at the customer's old premises to final delivery and unloading at their new premises. Most furniture movers assist in the packing and unpacking for customers who are relocating. Many have warehouse facilities for both temporary and long-term storage of goods. Furniture movers may be local or operate on a regional or national basis.
Truckers Insurance Florida Description of operations: Truckers transport cargo from its initial loading and pickup at the shipper's location to final delivery and unloading at the receiver's location. The cargo can include raw materials, work in process, and finished goods. The trucker may assist customers in the packing and unpacking of freight. Many trucking companies have warehouse facilities for both temporary and long-term storage of customers' goods. While some truckers transport freight to the same destinations over and over, others transport single shipments to a particular destination. The trucking industry is regulated by a number of federal agencies.
Truckers Insurance Florida Although sometimes used interchangeably, Primary Liability Insurance is different. Primary Liability covers damage done by your truck or vehicle. General Liability Insurance protects your business from litigation arising from various other circumstances in the course of day-to-day operation. General Liability Insurance covers your business in the event of damage being caused by day-day-operations and if your company is taken to court for any kind of liability. Primary Liability Insurance covers the damages to people or property caused directly by your truck/s. If you cause an accident that injures or even kills another person, the bodily injury portion of your Primary Liability Insurance will pay for the related expenses. If you cause an accident that damages another person’s property, the property damage portion of your Primary Liability Insurance will pay for those expenses.
Truckers Insurance Florida A term coined to apply to auto liability coverage for an owner/operator after a load has been delivered and while the truck is not being used for trucking purposes. This usually occurs when an owner/operator is operating his or her vehicle for mobility only (e.g., on the way home), and not in the course of transporting property for the motor carrier under whose operating authority they haul, and on whose liability policy they depend while they are engaged in trucking. The method of providing what is known as bobtail liability is a business auto policy (BAP) with the Truckers—Insurance for Non-Trucking Use endorsement (CA 23 09) attached source: irmi.com
Truckers Insurance Florida FMCSA or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Adminstration only requires $750,000. However, most shippers and brokers require $1,000,000 to load your truck. It is a good idea to check with those you will hauling for to confirm their requirements. Then the most common request is $100,00 for cargo.
