Commercial Trucking Insurance coverage provides truck owners with the peace of mind they need to keep cargo moving quickly and on time. At Hazar Insurance we have multiple fleet and transportation insurance coverage options offering important benefits to keep fleet and transportation owners protected.
Anyone who wants to engage in commercial transportation is required by the government to obtain a US DOT, which is a unique identifier required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In order to complete the registration process, it is necessary to have commercial trucking insurance. The registration process is very simple, just go to the FMCSA website and the registration will be online.

Obtaining a commercial transportation insurance quote is very simple, here is a little bit about the procedure:
First you need to bring basic financial information about your business, as a credit report will be run on your company to see if it is creditworthy to create an accurate quote. We also ask for information about the means of transportation:
