If you’re a small business owner and have vehicles that you need to keep your business in operation (i.e. pickup trucks or box trucks), consider purchasing commercial auto insurance. It will cover you in the event an employee driving one of your business vehicles gets into an accident while making deliveries or running errands.

There are multiple coverage options for commercial auto insurance:

  • Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
  • Property Damage Liability Coverage
  • Personal Injury/Medical Payments Coverage
  • Collision Coverage
  • Comprehensive Coverage
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Coverage

There’s also Employers Non-Owned Liability Coverage (ENOL). This policy basically ensures that should any of your employees use their own cars for business purposes, you personally won’t suffer any financial losses if they have an incident or cause any damage.

Mobile Apps

State Farm Infinity
State Farm

State Farm has not only one, but seven mobile apps for your smartphone or web browser that can be used to manage your insurance policies.

Pocket Agent lets you view your insurance card, file or view a claim, access Roadside Assistance, and connect with your local agent. You can also use it to pay any pending insurance premiums and deposit checks to your State Farm bank accounts. To make the app more secure, State Farm has added a fingerprint Touch ID feature you can use to login.

CarCapture is powered by Edmunds.com, a reliable car shopping website. The app recognizes any vehicle you take a picture of from the back and then provides all the information and details you want to know about it. From there, you can determine its market value and even locate a nearby dealership, all while getting a State Farm auto insurance quote.

Steer Clear encourages good, smart driving behaviors. It lets you earn discounts for driving well while teaching you safe driving behaviors. Some new features include driving tips for dangerous weather conditions and videos about others’ driving experiences.

Driver Feedback is an app for drivers of all ages looking to improve some of their driving habits that tend to be a bit dangerous. The app focuses on the driving actions of accelerating, braking, and cornering, since they are the most risky behaviors. From there, the app uses your phone’s accelerometer to measure and score these areas and then provide you with tips based on your results.

Driver Feedback Instructor Edition was created with drivers-ed and parent instructors in mind. It helps instructors track the progress of their student drivers in a smart and easy way and give real-time feedback.

Drive Safe & Save Mobile is a free app you can use to help save money on auto insurance. The gist is that the less you drive and safer you drive, the more you have a chance of saving. The app also includes a wifi option so you can save data on your phone plan.

MoveTools makes the moving process that much easier. Aside from actually packing your belongings when you move, you can use MoveTools to virtually pack them as well. The app has organization features that let you label your boxes and write down each one’s contents so you can keep track of them during the move.
