What Determines Tractor Trailer Insurance Cost?
Apart from the coverages you choose, your overall cost is determined by your risk assessment, that is to say, the statistical likelihood that you’ll end up costing the insurance company money. Your risk to an insurance company is often determined by:
- What you haul
- Your driving record (MVR)
- CDL experience
- Your garaging address
- Radius of operation
- Credit rating
- How much your truck is worth
- The structure of your tractor trailer insurance policy (bundled vs. individual coverages)
- Your payment plan
The other biggest factor is what type of coverages you need.

How to Lower the Cost of Tractor Trailer Insurance
Ask for Discounts – Insurance companies offer price discounts for a wide range of things, from deer guards on your truck to maintaining a clean driving record. When speaking to your agent, don’t be afraid to ask about discounts. You never know what you might qualify for.
Pay in fewer installments – Truckers have seen their yearly premium reduced by up to 20% just by paying in yearly, not monthly, installments. While this might not be feasible to many truckers (how many truckers have an extra $7,000 laying around?), if you can pay upfront, you should consider it.
Request a higher deductible – If lowering your premium is an absolute must, you can request a higher deductible. But this should be your last resort. A higher deductible means a higher out-of-pocket cost in the event of an accident and could end up costing you more in the long-run.
Shop around – The best way to get a lower premium without sacrificing the coverages you need is to simply shop around.
