Preventing Commercial Auto Insurance Claims

Ultimately, you want to avoid filing commercial vehicle insurance claims altogether. Clean claims records will save you money and keep your premiums low for years to come. While you can’t always predict the safest travel route, you and your employees can take certain safety measures to prevent accidents that are a result of ignorance. Here are some ways to stay safe on the roads:

  • Keep a safety checklist in all company trucks. Coach your staff members on safe practices. Simple measures like buckling seatbelts and using a hands-free phone can potentially save an employee’s life.
  • Make sure that all your company trucks meet safety standards. Check them regularly checked for efficiency (oil changes, etc.) If you own a business with multiple trucks, this can seem daunting, but will help save you money by avoiding fleet insurance claims.
  • Check the driving history of any employee you hire. An employee with a poor driving record is going to be a liability on the road and will be costly to insure.
  • Require your employee drivers to take safety training. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has several programs such as Operation Safe Driver and the Driver Excellence Award Program which promotes and rewards safe commercial drivers. Check with your local DMV or insurance company to see if any other programs are available to local businesses.
