The Lowdown on Auto Transport Insurance

Bill of Lading (B.O.L.) – This inspection report is the key to making sure you are covered. If you’ve ever rented a car, you know the drill: you or whoever you designate checks the vehicle out with driver upon pickup and delivery and notes the condition on the B.O.L. You get a copy of this inspection report upon delivery and in the unlikely event that the vehicle is not in the same condition it left in, just give us a call and we will help you with what’s next! » DOT, MC #, Insurance Certificate, W-9 – Each of our carriers is registered with the Department of Transportation, has a Motor Carrier Number with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), proof of liability insurance coverage and a taxpayer W-9 form on file with us. » How Much Coverage – carriers are generally insured for between 500,000-1,000,000 dollars; it varies by type of carrier and the number of vehicles they carry. Your vehicle will be insured for its Kelley Blue Book value. » What Exactly is Covered – The basic answer is anything at all that is driver negligence. For all the ins and outs, just call us and ask or see our terms and conditions.
