Food Delivery Drivers: Make Sure You Have the Right Insurance

Food Delivery Drivers: Make Sure You Have the Right Insurance

Delivering food for a side hustle can be a great way to make extra money. But if you’re not careful, it can also be a costly endeavor if you’re in an accident.

That’s because personal auto insurance doesn’t cover you when you’re using your car for commercial purposes. And delivery driving is considered commercial use.

Insurance companies know that delivery drivers are on the road more often and are sometimes under time constraints. This creates higher risks. So they charge more for commercial auto insurance.

Fortunately, there are more affordable options available now. But you still need to make sure you have the right coverage.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Let your auto insurance company know you’re delivering food. They may need to adjust your coverage or add a rider.
  • Get quotes from multiple insurance companies. There are a number of companies that offer affordable commercial auto insurance for delivery drivers.
  • Make sure you have enough coverage. You’ll need liability insurance to protect yourself in case you’re in an accident. You may also want to consider getting collision and comprehensive coverage.

Don’t wait until you’re in an accident to find out you don’t have the right insurance. Get covered today so you can start delivering food with peace of mind.
