Our agency specializes in insuring tractor/trailer owner operators who have their own authority or are leased to a certificated motor carrier. We write primary or non-trucking liability for flatbeds, grain, feed, tank, reefer, dry van, livestock, pneumatic, sand and gravel.
Our lead company is Great West Casualty Co., who is in our opinion the finest trucking insurance company operating in the country today. Their claims service is 24 hours, seven days a week and 85% of their customers operate 10 or less units.
We have been providing quality and affordable truck insurance since 1933. Our staff is experienced, hardworking and dedicated in knowing what it takes to properly service a trucking account.
Trucks are the working vehicles of our country. Literally everything that you see has been transported at some point on a truck. With millions of trucks on the nation's roads, critical to our economy, even the safest and most conscientious business owners have a high risk of loss. Large trucks are involved in hundreds of thousands of collisions each year, which means that every single truck has a genuinely high chance of needing to file a claim.
This is where trucking insurance comes in. Whether you're hauling a short distance or shipping products across the entire country, trucking insurance can ensure that you get the support you need in case something goes wrong.
