Ask the Expert:
I have a brokerage and a truck line, how can I get them both covered?
There are quite a few variables in this question. There is a lot of confusion with underwriters if the entities are not completely separate from each other including everything from name and MC number to address and phone number.
Essentially, to find companies that will offer a quote there can be no relation between the two entities. After that, you’ll need to contact an independent agent to offer the brokerage coverages and the auto liability and cargo for the carrier. While it is time consuming to set up another entity, it’s what will most likely need to be done.
