Why do you need tow truck insurance?

Almost every state requires commercial auto insurance for tow trucks and other commercial vehicles. Depending on their location, towing businesses that have employees may also be required by state law to carry workers' compensation insurance.

If your towing business stores or maintains customer vehicles, you should consider garage liability insurance. A type of general liability insurance, garage liability protects you in the event that a covered accident, such as a customer slipping and injuring themselves, happens in the course of business operations. Business owners may also need general liability insurance to fulfill the terms of a lease or a client contract.

Your towing garage might also benefit from having garage keepers insurance. It covers your business in the event that a customer’s vehicle is damaged or stolen while in your care.

Even when it's not required, commercial insurance coverage makes smart business sense. It can help pay for unexpected costs that could harm your towing business, such as expensive repairs, medical payments, or a lawsuit.
