Do You Need to Tell Your Car Insurance Company If You Drive for Rideshare or Food Delivery?

Ridesharing and food delivery are popular ways to make extra money or earn a living. But if you’re using your personal car for these activities, you need to let your car insurance company know.

Why You Need to Tell Your Car Insurance Company

When you use your car for business, it’s considered a commercial vehicle. This means that your personal car insurance policy may not cover you if you’re involved in an accident.

Even if your personal car insurance policy does cover you, it may not provide enough coverage. Rideshare and food delivery companies often have their own insurance policies, but these policies may not be enough to cover all of your costs if you’re involved in an accident.

How to Tell Your Car Insurance Company

It’s important to let your car insurance company know as soon as you start driving for a rideshare or food delivery company. You can usually do this by calling your insurance company or logging into your online account.

When you tell your car insurance company, they may ask you for some information about the rideshare or food delivery company you’re working for. They may also ask you to provide proof that you’re working for the company, such as a copy of your driver’s license or a screenshot of your schedule.

What Happens if You Don’t Tell Your Car Insurance Company?

If you don’t tell your car insurance company that you’re driving for a rideshare or food delivery company, and you’re involved in an accident, your insurance company may deny your claim. This means that you would be responsible for paying for all of the damages yourself.

 

If you’re considering driving for a rideshare or food delivery company, it’s important to let your car insurance company know. This will help ensure that you’re covered in the event of an accident.
