When it comes to insuring a vehicle during transport, a lot of first-time shippers may not necessarily understand the process. And that’s okay – the auto shipping industry is a big place, and it can be confusing for customers just getting into it. Many customers like to ask if they need insurance on the vehicle during transport, and the answer is that any personal policy on the vehicle will take a back-seat to the carrier’s insurance policy. Your vehicle is insured from the moment it is loaded onto the truck, to the moment it is unloaded, all through the carrier’s insurance. Any damage claims will need to be processed through the carrier’s insurance company, and all that information should be included with the paperwork you sign when your vehicle is loaded onto the carrier.
