Commercial Auto Insurance

At times, it is necessary to use a vehicle for business purposes and that is where Santa Barbara commercial auto insurance comes in.  Using a vehicle for business purposes can take the form of a designated company vehicle or a personal car that is used for work related errands.

If you are a business owner, it is imperative to have commercial auto insurance to help protect both your company and your employees.  At Brashears Insurance, we understand how difficult insurance terms can be.  To help we have outlined a few basics about commercial auto insurance to get you started:

Commercial Auto Insurance

What is commercial auto insurance?

Commercial auto insurance will be able to cover any vehicle that is used for business purposes. The insurance will cover both property damage as well as liability.  Vehicles used for business can be a company owned vehicle or a personal vehicle that is used for business purposes.

Why do you need auto insurance?

One reason why you need commercial auto insurance is that personal auto insurance will not cover you if you have an accident while driving for work. If your company has any type of vehicle, such as taxis, vans, small trucks or buses, then commercial auto insurance is necessary.  Having the right insurance protects you, your employees, and your company from costs of property damage, injury, and liability claims.

Personal auto policies exclude business-related driving whereas commercial auto policies cover both business and personal driving.  At Brashears Insurance, we help you identify which cars the owner of a business would want to insure on their personal auto policy and which would be better covered on their commercial auto policy.
