Target classes:

Commercial specialty auto insurance fleets — private passenger, light, medium, heavy or extra heavy – that are used in following industry segments:

  • Healthcare — hospitals, ambulance, couriers, mental health facilities
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing

Areas of emphasis:


  • Hired & Non-Owned Exposures (Stand Alone & Bundled) — i.e. Hospitals with visiting nurses, couriers with independent contractor exposure.
  • No food delivery

Extra Heavy Units

  • Owned units, carrying owned goods, portion of the fleet or entire fleet — many “standard markets” avoid this exposure.

Other Lines in a Specialty Market

  • Other lines are in captive or in a specialty market. (i.e. engineering firms, aircraft parts)

Long haul exposure

  • Owned fleets with a long haul exposure, portion of the fleet or entire fleet – many “standard markets” avoid this exposure.

Symbol 10 or manuscript

  • Symbol 10 or manuscript wording needed to tailor the coverage to a unique situation.

Large sales fleets

  • In many cases, the WC and auto are the only coverages that need to be purchased in the US.

Public livery

  • Fleets with “incidental” public transport — (i.e. colleges, hospital with non-emergency transport)
  • No assisted living

Flexible driver guidelines

  • Driver(s) do not meet “standard market” driver guidelines—our guidelines are more flexible than many “standard markets”.

Large loss

  • Incumbent carrier took a large loss and does not want to renew, but otherwise the experience and controls are good.

Unique Equipment

  • Fleet where a portion of the units have unique equipment attached to the power unit. (i.e. industrial vacuum trucks, welding units)
