Many garbage truck insurance companies are turning away individuals and businesses that are deemed too risky, or, they could be leaving gaps/exclusions in policies that leave the policyholder exposed.

From our underwriters to our legal team, the insured, and the producers — at Prime, everyone is considered a partner and our processes are designed for the mutual benefit of all parties involved.

Garbage Truck Insurance Providers and Prime Insurance

Looking for the best garbage truck insurance provider? Prime Insurance Company should be at the top of your list. Our partnership approach requires that we speak with the producer and the insured so we can better understand everyone’s needs in order to provide the right coverage, the right service, and most importantly, a healthy relationship.

Accidents do happen and unfortunately, “There has been an ‘unprecedented uptick in fatalities’ associated with recycling and garbage truck crashes in 2019, according to the Solid Waste Association of North America. That’s alarming, even as a preliminary number, because garbage trucks are already among the most dangerous heavy trucks. (1) they are often out very early in the morning, when the streets are still dark; (2) trucks stop and start frequently; and (3) drivers stop in the middle of the road to save time, instead of pulling over.” – Trucking Watchdog

 It’d be wise to go with a trusted garbage truck insurance provider such as Prime to handle claims promptly and professionally with exceptional results!

A lot of people go with cheaper markets that will cost them and their insured more in the long run! Over the past years, many of the cheaper markets have run into trouble, gone broke, or stopped writing. As a result, Prime is writing more business and we remain committed to doing it right! Insureds need a more efficient garbage truck insurance company and a better partner that’s willing to fight frivolous lawsuits practiced by legal professionals nationwide.

In short, Prime won’t compete with your other markets from a premium standpoint, but we will help you write the business you are turning away today. Plus, we’ll be by your side when a claim or lawsuit is filed against you.
