Couple Standing By Moving TruckAs you plan your move, you should take time to consider which vehicle will get your possessions from your old home to your new one. Many times, a moving truck can fulfill this need. However, when a moving truck is necessary, it is important to consider the risks associated with the truck.

Do you need special car insurance if you are renting a moving truck? There are a few simple things you need to take into consideration.

Check Your Other Policies First

Before renting a truck, check with your auto insurance or your home insurance provider. Some of these policies will have built-in coverage for moving truck rentals.

If these policies give you moving coverage, then you don't need to buy a separate policy while moving. Never expect or assume your existing policy covers moving risks. Not all insurers offer it. Also unlike rental car insurance, credit card plans usually don't cover rental truck expenses.

Find A Supplemental Plan

If your auto insurance policy does not cover moving trucks, then you will need to obtain coverage.

The company renting the vehicle to you may offer an in-house policy. While this may be the easiest option, it is not always the most affordable. Instead, look for a supplemental liability insurance policy. You may be able to add this to your existing auto insurance plan.

In doing so, you'll extend the coverage you need, likely at little expense. Liability insurance and personal effects insurance are usually the most important types of coverage for moving truck renters.

It is also important to consider other types of moving truck insurance coverage. This includes personal accident and cargo insurance coverage. There can also be supplemental liability, auto tow insurance, and collision waivers.

Compare a variety of policies to find the best option for you. This type of insurance can provide you with a wide range of protections. It can also reduce your costs significantly.

When you need a moving truck, you also need to ensure you have coverage to protect your risks. This includes protecting your cargo and personal items on board. With this type of insurance, you do not have to worry about accidents.
