Dry Van Trailer Insurance
In the trucking industry, dry van trailers are the typical trailers that bobtails carry. Essentially, they are boxes on wheels. This style of trailer is utilized when the freight you haul doesn’t require temperature control.
Freight carried in dry van trailers is generally goods that don’t possess any specific transport requirements. Still, these goods are often very 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 of locating 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 to just do the research. Here’s where SafeLine can help.
Dry Van Trailer Coverage That Makes Sense
First, it’s important to note that 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 from 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.
We also recommend cargo insurance for the cargo you haul. Without it, you’ll wind up replacing your trailer in the event of an accident, but not whatever it was hauling. This could be a disaster for you and your customers!
These are the primary types of insurance that SafeLine recommends, but there are others available.
