Commercial Auto Insurance

Hawaii businesses are required to have a commercial automobile insurance policy if vehicles are used for tasks related to the operator's occupation, profession or business other than commuting. The Island Insurance Hawaii Commercial Auto Program provides businesses with the required Liability and Personal Injury Protection coverages as well as optional coverages for physical damage to automobiles owned, leased or hired by the named insured. Without a commercial auto insurance policy, if you are involved in an accident while conducting company business, damages may not be covered by your personal auto policy.

Also referred to as truckers insurance or fleet insurance, commercial auto insurance is required:

  • If employees operate the vehicle or if ownership of the vehicle is in the name of a corporation or partnership.
  • If you are using your vehicle to transport goods or people for a fee or if it is used to conduct a service.
  • If higher limits of liability are necessary due to the nature of your work.
  • If you haul a considerable weight in tools or equipment or towing a trailer used to conduct you may be required to have a commercial vehicle insurance policy.

Optional auto coverages by endorsement are also available such as:

  • Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist
  • Wage Loss Benefits
  • Death Benefits
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Alternative Expenses coverages
