Trucks are the working vehicles of the automotive industry, designed to provide all the power needed to get things from one place to another. Millions of trucks drive on our nation's roads and freeways every day. While they're critical to our economy, even the safest trucks represent a serious risk for the companies operating them.
Large trucks are involved in a significant number of collisions. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the average cost per truck crash of medium/heavy trucks is a whopping $148,279. Commercial truck accidents can be incredibly costly, so it’s crucial to have the right kind of insurance.
Whether you're hauling a few supplies between work sites in your truck or manage a fleet that ships products across the entire country, trucking insurance can make sure that you get the support you need in case something goes wrong. The staff at Modern Insurance Marketing, Inc. will work with you to provide tailored commercial truck insurance, giving you the peace of mind you need when your vehicle is on the road.
We cover vehicles in Portland, Wilsonville, Lake Oswego, West Linn and beyond.

Commercial trucking insurance can come in several forms, featuring both broad and more specialized coverages, including:
Semi-trucks are a special category when it comes to insurance. These vehicles face two major threats when they're out on the roads: collision and theft. Reports have noted that theft is becoming increasingly professional in nature, and the average loss is hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you have several trucks robbed at the same time, it's easy to see how quickly those losses could put you out of business.
Our semi-truck insurance policies are designed to meet these changing threats and provide you with the support you need if something goes wrong. We'll work with you to get incidents resolved as quickly as possible so that your truck can get back on the road.
Your commercial truck insurance rate is determined by a variety of factors. The following factors can come into play:
Insurance carriers rate these factors in different ways, creating distinct insurance packages. In order to understand what insurance is best for you, it’s important to compare prices across plans and speak to an insurance agent about this in more detail.
