What You Need To Know About Home Based Business Auto Insurance

When purchasing home based business insurance, auto insurance should not be overlooked, nor should you assume your personal car insurance is sufficient as home based business auto insurance. Even if it is, it's important to know how, when, and to what extent it applies to your home business.

Depending on your business activities, a commercial home based business auto insurance policy may be necessary, particularly if you have employees. For the most part, both personal and commercial car insurance are the same with regard to the main types of coverage, but finding the cheapest car insurance rates for either means pinning down your specific needs.

Personal Or Commercial Coverage?

For the home based business, home based business auto insurance may not be necessary, and a personal auto insurance policy might be sufficient. It is important, in that case, that the policyholder inform his or her auto insurance company that the personal auto is sometimes used in business, and, should the vehicle be in an accident or be damaged, it is essential that the claim state the vehicle was being used for business at that time.

The auto insurance provider may require commercial auto insurance, however, particularly if your home based business has employees that use owned or leased company vehicles or personal vehicles for business purposes.

Choose A Well Rated Vehicle To Keep Premiums Down

Car insurance for both commercial and personal vehicle use are affected by the choice of vehicle. If used more for business than for the family car, the owner of a home business should choose an auto that carries one of the cheapest car rates because, in the eyes of auto insurance companies, it is less expensive to buy or repair, is stolen less often, or has more standard safety and security equipment.

Listings of the cheapest car rates can be found at state insurance agency websites.
