Trailer Insurance in all localities throughout Virginia, USA

We all know how important it is to keep our vehicles insured. In fact, except for New Hampshire, having auto liability coverage is required by state law. However, that car insurance coverage doesn't always extend to trailers being towed behind your vehicle, so trailer insurance can be used to fill this gap.

Having this form of insurance is more useful than people may realize. According to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear-end collisions are the single most common type of crash and account for roughly 29% of all incidents. This means that trailers are exposed to a high degree of risk, especially when drivers can't effectively see vehicles in the lane behind them.

As a driver, you want to keep your vehicles and passengers safe. There's only so much you can do to prevent a collision, but with the right coverage plan, you can ensure that you're not going to find yourself paying out of pocket if a problem occurs.

Trailers Covered By Insurance

Most trailers can be insured, regardless of whether they're being used for private or commercial purposes. Exceptions to this are rare and are generally limited to trailers that are considered too high-risk to insure. If you're unsure whether your trailer qualifies for coverage, call Galax Insurance and ask for more information.

Trailer types that are usually covered include:

Please be aware that trailer insurance is not the same as commercial trailer insurance, which is designed for vehicles being used for business purposes (including the transport of products) and covers different liabilities.
