If you own a truck, you own a business — and you certainly want it to be successful. It makes sense to protect yourself and your business with the right insurance. But with rising costs and so many different options available, you need to make sure you have everything you need without over-insuring and driving up your operating costs even more.
Your first step is to find an agent that can walk you through the process and make sure you have the coverage you need and the service you deserve, at a price you can afford.
OOIDA members don’t have far to look for such an agent, because this is one of the many programs the association offers. Talking one-on-one with an experienced truck insurance agent will definitely help to take the mystery out of truck insurance. OOIDA truck insurance agents only deal with truck insurance, which makes them the leading experts.
Solving the mystery of truck insurance is not as difficult as you may think — if you have the right agent. The agents at OOIDA will take their time to hear your needs and help you navigate through the many different options of coverage available. You will also find we have flexible payment options with low down payments to keep your startup costs down.
If you are a leased owner-operator, running under your own authority, private carrier or hauling exempt commodities, you need to give OOIDA a call and speak with one of our agents. Along with the benefits of working with an agent that has the experience and expertise to answer all of your insurance questions, the profits from the insurance program goes back to the Association to fight for your rights.
You can reach an OOIDA truck insurance agent Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST, at 800-715- 9369.
