The licensed insurance advisors at Magaya Insurance Services can counsel you on the best types of coverage for your fleet.
4. Can personal auto insurance cover vehicles used for business purposes?
Personal auto insurance is generally not sufficient to cover vehicles used for business purposes. In fact, personal auto insurance policies often specifically exclude coverage for commercial use of vehicles. It’s important for businesses to obtain appropriate commercial automotive insurance to ensure proper coverage for business-related vehicle use.
5. How are commercial automotive insurance premiums determined?
Commercial automotive insurance premiums are based on several factors, including the types of vehicles, the business’s location, the number of vehicles insured, the driving records of the drivers, the purpose of vehicle use, and the coverage limits chosen.

8. Do you offer truckers' liability insurance?
Yes, we offer truckers’ liability insurance, an important form of commercial automotive insurance designed to provide coverage for truckers or trucking companies who operate commercial trucks as part of their business.
Truckers’ liability insurance focuses on the unique risks and exposures associated with the trucking industry. It typically provides coverage for bodily injury and property damage liability that may arise from accidents involving the insured truck or trucks. This includes coverage for injuries or damage caused to third parties, such as other vehicles, pedestrians, or property, as a result of a trucking accident.
In addition to liability coverage, truckers’ insurance may also include other important coverages such as physical damage coverage (for damage to the insured truck itself), cargo insurance (to protect the cargo being transported), and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (to provide protection if the at-fault party in an accident does not have sufficient insurance coverage).
Overall, truckers’ liability insurance is a crucial component of commercial automotive insurance for trucking businesses, as it helps protect against the financial risks associated with accidents, injuries, and property damage that may occur while operating commercial trucks.
