Low Cost Bobtail Truck Insurance in AL, FL & GA
WHAT IS BOBTAIL INSURANCE?
Driving your 18-wheeler without the trailer attached is known as bobtailing or, more commonly, deadheading. Semi owner operators who occasionally make deadhead trips with or without dispatch are usually required by their motor carrier to have special coverage, known as Bobtail truck insurance.
Here's what independent big rig drivers need to know about this insurance:
Overall, Bobtail provides wider coverage than non-trucking liability and usually is more costly. The most requested coverage is the $1 million limit, but higher limits are available. Your cost will depend on the amount of coverage you carry for each but plan on spending more for bobtail coverage than non-trucking liability.
Remember: Before you buy either coverage, check with your motor carrier on which coverage is required and how much it costs. Then contact one of our professional trucking insurance agents with extensive knowledge of the American trucking industry for a quote. You can save a lot of time and money working with a pro.
