Massachusetts businesses that have straight trucks usually must insure these vehicles. The most appropriate insurance for these vehicles is normally box truck insurance.
Box truck insurance is specialized commercial vehicle insurance for straight trucks. The policies tend to come with lower premiums and simpler coverages than what policies for larger trucks have.
Most businesses that have straight trucks need commercial box truck insurance. Coverage is required by Massachusetts state law in most cases when trucks are driven on public roadways.
Some examples of different businesses that might need one of these policies include:
While all of these businesses can likely use a commercial box truck policy, each company also has its own unique risk considerations and coverage needs. An insurance agent specializing in box truck policies can help find a policy that meets a business's needs.
When I called the staff at Paul T. Murphy Insurance, they explained how auto reform would allow me to increase coverage and save money at the same time. I moved my home and umbrella insurance to my current auto carrier and saved over $350. In July 2008 when my auto insurance renews with Safety Insurance, I will save another $300 just for having my auto and home insurance with the same company. The staff at Paul T Murphy Insurance Agency really understands the new Massachusetts reform and how to pass savings and additional coverage to their clients.
After many years of doing business with the Paul T. Murphy Insurance Agency, I am thrilled to learn of this relationship with Northrup to service the Lynnfield area. I have trusted both my personal and business policies with Paul and have never received less than the best of service. I like the face that they service as professionals but treat you like a friend. Recently during a complicated Workers Comp claim, Paul showed up to walk me through what I thought would be a mess of paperwork and confusion – the personalized service I receive spoke volumes. I have never gotten service like that from anyone else. I also like the fact that they are always ready to save me money without ever compromising my coverage.
One of the best business and personal decisions I ever made was to collaborate with Paul Murphy Insurance Company for our families insurance needs. Starting with our business policies, then eventually all of our personal policies, we have slowly transitioned all to be managed by PMI. Many companies loosely tout that they treat you as one of the family; PMI proves it in their actions. We are glad we are part of their family.
Commercial box truck insurance policies are available for most types of straight trucks. Standard straight trucks, cargo cutaways, rack trucks, reefers, tilt cabs, and others can be insured with these policies.
Policies are also typically available for expedited straight trucks with sleeper cabs. Sleeper cabs tend to require additional coverage, though.
