At Pathway, we think it’s important that our customers have a solid understanding of their insurance policies. 

Knowing what is and is not covered by your Texas Commercial Auto Insurance policy, for example, can mean the difference between a minor inconvenience and a catastrophic financial loss!

To help illustrate this point, we sometimes use fictional insurance scenarios. The following is a continuation of our series observing the insurance pitfalls of Billy Sandwichshort. 

Tow Truck Insurance Texas – Claims Scenario Part Five.

Tow Truck Insurance Irving TxIn our previous article, Billy seemed to learn his lesson and purchase the proper commercial policy to cover his tow truck. 

It was not long before he found himself in another accident, however, so his coverage is about to be put to the test. 

Billy files two insurance claims: one for damage to his tow truck, and another for damage to his customer’s vehicle that he was towing at the time of the crash. 

A couple weeks later the insurance company replies. They inform Billy that the substantial damage to his truck will be covered in full by Billy’s commercial auto policy. 

Billy is so overjoyed that he almost forgets to read the second half of the letter. He calms down and reads on. 

To Billy’s great disappointment, the insurance company also informs him that the considerable damage to the car belonging to his customer will not be covered under Billy’s insurance policy. 

How can this be? Billy has the right policy this time! 

Remember from last week’s article how Billy’s agent recommended some additional coverage options for Billy’s situation? One of those options is called Garagekeepers Insurance*. 

Garagekeepers Insurance specifically protects damage to non-owned vehicles while being towed by a covered auto. Without it, damage to the vehicle being towed is not covered.

And that means Billy is once again stuck with a big bill and one angry customer. 

*Outside of Texas and Virginia, Garagekeepers Insurance is called On-Hook Coverage.

Another important step is to make sure you set your policy up right in the first place. We are going to continue a conversation we started in our last post about our fictitious backyard mechanic named Billy Sandwichshort. 

Tow Truck Insurance Laredo Tx – Claims Scenario-Part Two. 

In our last article we were introduced to a back yard mechanic named Billy Sandwichshort.

You’ll recall that after a couple years of saving Billy purchased a used Ford F250 rigged with a tow kit to offer a towing service along with his repair service, but his insurance agent informed Billy that their agency does not insure trucks for business operations.

He recommended that Billy look around for a company that will do so.

Billy calls up another insurance provider that offers commercial policies and tells them he needs insurance for his truck.

It does not occur to Billy to inform this new agency that he will be using the truck to tow vehicles for his back yard repair service.

The new agent sets Billy up with a personal auto policy, and before long Billy is towing customers’ cars and raking in lots of new business.

A few weeks later, Billy drives off to pick up one of his customers’ broken down cars. He hitches the car to his truck and sets off for his back yard shop.

Because he is singing along to a catchy tune on the radio, Billy does not notice a large armadillo crossing the road in front of him until he’s almost upon it.

At the last moment Billy reacts and impulsively swerves to avoid the animal (which can be more dangerous than simply hitting the animal) and manages to dodge it. The sudden swerve is enough, however, to cause the car he is towing behind him to swing.

The momentum of the swinging car pulls Billy partially off the road. The back end of the car smashes into a telephone pole, breaking the bumper and tail light and damaging the rear axle.

Billy’s Ford hits a concrete retaining wall, resulting in significant damage to the truck’s front end.

What does this mean, given Billy’s new insurance coverage? Find out in our next article.

Some auto repair garages, or tow-only companies have a mistaken understanding about insurance – they think it covers everything! In reality insurance policies contain conditions and exclusions of coverage. 

Let’s consider another claims scenario right now. 

Tow Truck Insurance Plano Texas – Claims Scenario. 

Billy Sandwichshort is what you might call a back yard mechanic. He loves cars, and has always tinkered and dabbled with engines and car parts in his spare time. 

On occasion he would offer to take a stab at fixing his friends’ and relatives’ cars for them at no charge, and over the years started to get pretty decent at it. 

As he started spending more and more time doing car repair, he decided to start charging for it and treating it like a part time job. Though business was steady, Billy noticed that he would often lose potential customers to established repair shops as they offered their own towing service to get the broken down cars to their location. 

After a couple years of saving, Billy goes out and purchases a used Ford F250 with a tow kit so he can pick up smaller vehicles. 

He calls up his insurance agent to add his new truck to his personal car insurance policy. His agent asks Billy what he is going to do with his new truck and Billy honestly answers “I’m going to tow small vehicles to work on them at my house.” 

Billy’s agent explains, “Billy you need to buy a commercial auto policy because a regular car policy will not cover you. Also, did you say you are fixing cars at your house?  If so you need to get a business policy for that, too. Unfortunately we don’t sell those types of policies. Let me get you a recommendation to another agent.” 

Billy calls the other agent and gets a BIG premium shock! 

Wow, he did not expect his insurance rates to go up by 5 times for a small tow truck. Billy can’t afford that, but just then he sees a commercial on TV. He calls them for a car insurance quote and doesn’t think it’s important to tell them about how he is going to use his vehicle.

Tow Truck Insurance Fort Worth Texas – Know Your Coverage Part 3.

In our last two articles we discussed the importance of understanding your Texas Tow Truck Insurance policy, and how the best way to understand your policy is, once again, to read it thoroughly.

Let’s now return to our imagined scenario for the conclusion that will illustrate the importance of understanding your policy.

Tow Truck Insurance Texas – Coverage Scenario Continued.

When we last saw Jethro and Linda, they had just been through an auto accident on their way home from a boating trip. You’ll recall that they had just purchased a new boat but did not want to use their personal vehicles to pull their new watercraft. Instead, Jethro decided to use one of his tow trucks.

Because he purchased On Hook Coverage for all of his tow trucks, he assumed everything would be fine.

After the accident, Jethro files an insurance claim for the damage to his boat on his commercial auto policy because he has a $5,000 deductible on his boat policy but a zero dollar deductible on his commercial auto policy.

A few weeks later Jethro receives a letter from his insurance company denying the insurance claim!

Included within the letter is the reason for the claim denial:

“Towed Auto” or “watercraft” means an “auto” or “watercraft” not owned by or registered to “you” while it is being moved by “your” covered “auto”. “Towed auto” or “watercraft” also means an “auto” or “watercraft” when it is moved from the place where “you” accept it for movement by or on “your” covered “auto”, until such time as it is moved to the place where it is finally delivered by “you”. 

Jethro’s eyes lock onto one phrase in particular: “watercraft” not owned by or registered to “you.”

Simply put, the insurance company is not obligated to pay for the damage to the boat because it was owned by Jethro at the time of the accident.

Jethro is naturally a bit upset. He had previously called his agent (who wasn’t in at the time) but spoke with the secretary who assured him that his On Hook coverage would cover him when towing watercraft.

Why did the secretary tell him he was covered when he clearly was not?  We will consider this in our next post.
