Various policy endorsements are available to extend alternative coverages to the auto liability. Pollution liability, as relates to the use of vehicles, is a form that should be considered always. Various deductibles are available to allow you to absorb some of your losses and reduce your overall cost. Interstate truckers will need the MCS90, the BMC91x, and the appropriate State form endorsements which extend coverage to the regulatory agencies. For a discussion on proper State and Federal requirements please see LICENSING elsewhere in these pages.
Policy limits, generally, for operations with trucks over 10,000 gross vehicle weight have a required limit of $750,000. This limit is set by the FHWA on interstate travel and, generally, matched by the various States. While it is typical for many of your customers to request 1 million in liability coverage this is above what is required by the federal government.
