Auto Insurance FAQs
+ Why does my vehicle need to be insured commercially?
It is important to rate your vehicle properly based on your daily use. If you are using your vehicle as a company vehicle or to drive around the city (or outside of the city) to different job sites each day, it must be rated commercially. In the event of an accident, a claim can potentially be denied if your vehicle is not rated properly. Please contact your licensed broker to update/ensure your vehicle rating is up to date.
+ How can I lower my vehicle insurance costs?
Inquire with your licensed broker about shopping your policy. At DeJong’s we have the ability to shop your policy to many potential markets each year.
Ensure you have all discounts that apply to you. These discounts may include combined auto/home discount, loyalty discount, aftermarket anti-theft device discount, conviction free discount, occupational and many more.
+ Are my tools or equipment which are stored in my vehicle covered under my commercial automobile policy in the event of a loss?
No. Tools, equipment and stock are not covered under your commercial automobile insurance policy. The automobile policy covers loss or damage to your vehicle only.
Coverage for tools, equipment and stock stored in your vehicle or trailer is purchased on a commercial property policy.
