Contractors and construction professional rely on their autos to get the job done. Whether you’ve got a personal vehicle that doubles as your work truck, or an entire fleet of autos that your construction business owns, contractor commercial auto can protect your vehicles from the risks of the road.
Commercial auto insurance is the most common method to provide automobile liability for commercial businesses and contractors. The insurance company, by virtue of issuing the policy, agrees to pay all sums which the insured is legally obligated due to either bodily injury or property damage arising from the ownership, maintenance, or use on any auto listed under the policy. Typical Commercial Auto Insurance coverage may consist of Symbol 1 (Any Auto), Symbol 7 (Scheduled Autos), Symbol 8 (Hired Autos), and Symbol 9 (Non-Owned Autos). Most personal auto policies do not offer coverage for commercial vehicles used in conjunction with business operations of the insured.
Do You Need Commercial Auto?
Contractors who use their personal vehicles for work may assume their personal auto policies will cover any accidents, damage, or injuries on the road. But if you use your vehicle primarily for work purposes, you may be left with inadequate coverage in the event of an accident.

- Are there any vehicles owned or leased by your business?
- Are there any vehicles titled or registered to your business?
- Do you use your vehicle as your primary work vehicle?
- Do any employees or non-listed drivers use your vehicle on a regular basis?
- Do any of your vehicles have ladder racks, permanent toolboxes, or other equipment installed to support your business activities?
