Insuring Your Commercial Vehicle Gives Peace of Mind

Cheap Commercial Vehicle Insurance Quotes from Cost-U-Less

Are you a business owner looking for affordable commercial auto coverage in California? If your business has grown to include more employees than just yourself who are using your vehicles (or their own) to conduct business, then a commercial auto policy is right for you. Similarly, if you are using your vehicle or vehicles to transport people or products in the course of business, then you need to purchase commercial auto.

This offers protection against liabilities that may result from bodily injury or property damage caused during the course of business. At Cost-U-Less, we can help you find the appropriate protection for a cost you can afford.

Why Your Business Needs Commercial Vehicle Insurance in CA

Your personal policy will not typically cover what you use for business purposes – especially if it is involved in an accident while being used for business purposes. You need specialized protection in the event of an incident that results in injuries and/or damages. This type of policy provides protection for your business against potential legal liability.

How Much Does Commercial Auto Coverage Cost in CA?

The average cost is $142 per month. However, the cost depends on a number of factors such as how often you drive, what you primarily use it for, if you have employees driving, etc. If you are using a typical passenger auto, the cost will cost significantly less than coverage for a semi-truck.
