Keywords in Insurance:
Primary Source or Secondary Source – This is with no doubt what sets our insurance apart. Primary source insurance, which we have, means that ours is the first source of insurance used in paying for damages and injuries. Most DD companies claiming insurance have only secondary source insurance. That means that after you flip the bill for everything and run out of money, then the driving company’s insurance provider backs the remainder. This really means that secondary source insurance really doesn’t provide you with any up front coverage. Is this legal, do companies really do this? Yes and Yes. The annual cost difference to designated driving companies insurance premium’s for the two types of coverage sources is approximately 10 times. This is not an option that most companies go for, but in our opinion, having the proper primary source insurance coverage is essential.
Non-Owned Auto Physical Damage Coverage – Did you know that with most DD insurance policies that the vehicle being driven is NOT insured at all? This type of coverage is not required in a General Liability Policy, it’s an option. And being almost 40% of the entire policy premium, this is another detail that most DD companies don’t pay for. Physical Damage Coverage is certainly part of our policy.
