Car insurance covers any damage to the car that is insured. Under car insurance, there are 2 categories, namely commercial automobile insurance and personal car insurance. A car which is being used for commercial purposes is not covered under personal car insurance. Vehicles used for commercial purposes, commercial coverage is necessary.
Commercial car coverage is similar to a traditional auto insurance package which covers the damage caused to the vehicle and the damage filed by the parties. Commercial vehicle insurance can be subdivided into 2 categories, namely private and business use. This refers to those cars which are used personally and occasionally used for commercial use, as long as it is not registered for business use only. Vehicles that are used for commercial use only refers to the usage of the car completely for commercial purposes. Hence, one has to opt for the right insurance coverage. If a car is being used by the business which is not insured in its name which might even include the personal car of the business owner. Then one can opt for ‘non owned auto policies’ which insures the vehicle, irrespective of the driver using it.
