Why is Shopping for Commercial Truck Insurance in California So Hard?

Like a lot truck drivers, you’re probably wondering what factors influence the cost of different policies. The state of California is a driving force of the US economy – literally! Goods that arrive at our ports need to get out to consumers across the country, and who transports a large portion of that freight? That’s right – commercial truck drivers! In order to meet the shipping demand, California is a haven for both freight companies and independent owner-operated commercial truck drivers, and to meet the needs of all of these vehicles, there are tons of companies that offer commercial coverage throughout the state.

While having access to so many providers can be a good thing, as it means that you’ll have an easier time finding affordably priced coverage than drivers do in other states, having so many companies can also be a big con, as sorting through all of the different options to find a provider that offers reliable coverage can be an overwhelming task. In the simplest terms, finding truck insurance in California is difficult because there are just way too many companies for a busy business owner or fleet owner and operator to sort through. Further adding to the challenges is the complex, difficult to understand vernacular that companies like to use. If you’ve ever read through the details of different policies, you know exactly what we mean.

What Affects coverage Rates in California?

Insurance companies in all states take several factors into consideration when they’re determining the rates they charge for coverage, and that’s certainly the case in California. Some of the following factors that providers will take into account include the following:

  • Your driving record
  • The number of years you’ve had your commercial license
  • Your experience level
  • Your sex and age
  • How many miles you drive
  • The number of trucks you’re insuring
  • The type of commercial vehicle that needs to be insured
  • The kind of freight that is carried
  • Where the driver is mostly operating

How to Find Affordable Rates in California

Now that you know why finding coverage can be challenging and the factors that are taken into consideration when setting rates, let’s take a look at some tips that you can use to find affordable coverage.

  • Shop around. Don’t just go with the first company you speak with; instead, get quotes from several providers and compare the quotes you receive
  • Avoid over-insuring your commercial vehicle(s). While you do need to make sure that you have the coverage that is required by law, you don’t need to go overboard with it. A lot of companies will try to sell you more coverage than you really need.
  • Consider completing courses and taking driving tests that will showcase your skills and provide you’re a safe driver. While it isn’t guaranteed, this strategy could help you secure lower rates.
