Obtaining Your Own Authority
- Be prepared. You are going to need good credit, financing, and a plan. While hundreds of new authorities are filed every week, hundreds more go out of business each week as well. Planning ahead is a key step in the success of your business.
Talk to an agent who specializes in trucking insurance, and understand what it is that you need. They can advise you on which insurance market would be the best fit for your operation, and give you options on coverage and deductibles. (Get a fast quote now)
