Commercial Insurance for Tow Trucks
Rollbacks, Wreckers, & more!
Are you looking for insurance for your tow truck?
Like all vehicles on the road, tow trucks must be insured.

What kind of insurance coverage do I need for a tow truck?
In general, tow trucks need auto liability coverage to protect against injuries or damage to other people or property, as well as on-hook or in-tow coverage to protect the vehicles you tow. You may also want physical damage (i.e. comprehensive & collision) to protect your tow truck in the event that it gets damaged in an accident or a covered weather event. Depending on your specific tow truck and how you use it, we can help select the most appropriate commercial auto insurance coverage.
Common coverages for tow trucks:
Auto liability (bodily injury and property damage)
Cargo, in-tow, or on-hook coverage
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage
Comprehensive and collision (aka physical damage or "full" coverage)
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Garagekeepers legal liability
