Remember those futuristic films with self-driving trucks and vehicles in them? That was a dream not long ago. Not anymore. Tesla has revealed the new Semi truck, which will turn the trucking industry upside down. We’ve seen some conceptual models so far, but this is something real. Let’s check out some of the features that Tesla has announced.
The company you contracted with was reputable. You've been an owner-operator for nearly a decade. You figured everything was on the up and up. You were confident everything was covered. So you took the job and hit the road. You didn't have a concern in your mind. You were out to make some money. That's the name of the game in the trucking industry. Stack that cash. Things didn't work out as planned...
Your new rig was stolen right from you. That was awful. You didn't imagine things would get worse. Once you have calmed down, you reached out to the insurance company. You figured your rig would be covered. You thought a new one would be in your possession in a matter of weeks. You thought wrong. Apparently, you had purchased the wrong kind of Physical Damage Insurance. You bought collision, but you needed comprehensive to be covered if your truck gets stolen.
Who Needs Non-Trucking Liability Insurance? If you own or drive a rig, then getting Non-Trucking Liability Insurance could be a great idea. While many don't plan on using their truck for non-business purposes, life happens. Nearly every driver ends up using their rig for personal use. As such, most drivers will benefit from the coverage and extra level of protection.
