In the trucking industry, Dry Van Trailers are the typical trailer that bobtail’s carry. Essentially, they are a box on wheels. This style of trailer is utilized when the freight isn’t required to be temperature controlled.
Freight carried in dry van trailers is generally goods that don’t possess any specific transport requirements. Still, these goods are valuable so any type of accident with this kind of trailer can get expensive.
Luckily, SafeLine Insurance is here to walk you through the process and locate the best deal out there.
It’s never easy to locate the perfect insurance package. And with so many options, it can be time-consuming just doing the research.
Here’s where SafeLine can help. First, it’s important to note that typically a shipping trailer typically doesn’t belong to the company transporting it. Consequently, most companies require dry van trailer insurance to insure their assets are protected while in someone else’s care. This is known as Trailer Interchange Insurance. We can’t stress enough the value of this kind of insurance for transporting goods.
Trailer Interchange Insurance is similar to Physical Damage Coverage for dry van trailers. It keeps you protected for incidents outside of the driver’s control such as fire, vandalism, or theft. If something of this nature happened and this kind of coverage wasn’t in place, the financial burden would fall on the driver. This is a worthwhile safety net to have for the dry van trailer and the goods it carries.
These are the primary types of insurance SafeLine recommends, but there are others available. Please call a SafeLine Insurance agent now, and they’ll be happy to go over all your options!
