Truck Writers loves owner-operators.

Whether you are a single unit owner operator or have an owner operator fleet, we offer insurance services tailored to your needs.

While a motor carrier’s insurance will cover an owner operator while under dispatch, an owner operator is responsible for carrying additional coverages in order to comply with a lease agreement.

Owner operator coverages may include:

  • Bobtail/Non-Trucking Liability
  • Physical Damage
  • Occupational Accident / Workers’ Compensation
  • Passenger Policies

If you’re just getting started in the process of becoming an owner operator, there are several questions to ask yourself:

  • Will I lease onto another motor carrier and get a percentage of the haul or will I get my own authority and develop my own loads?
  • Will I lease, rent or buy my own equipment?
  • What is the option of leasing vs. buying my own equipment?
  • If I am going to lease onto a motor carrier, what should I consider when looking for a good one?
  • What experience and driving history will the motor carrier require of me?
  • What is better for me based on pay and my family situation running local, intermediate or over the road?
  • What insurance/s do I need to be best protected?
  • What are my financing options for equipment, insurance and operating capital?
  • What type of license do I need based on the type of equipment I am looking to operate?

No matter where you are in the process, Truck Writers team of owner operator specialists will ensure you’re properly covered. Truck Writers provides Non-Trucking/Bobtail insurance in 38 states. Call 1-800-634-8612 for a quote!
