Trailer Interchange insurance provides Physical Damage insurance for trailers being pulled under a trailer interchange agreement. This is essentially Physical Damage insurance for non-owned trailers. This insurance protects you if the trailer is damaged by collision, fire, theft, explosion or vandalism.
Since the exchanged trailers are not owned by you, they require separate insurance coverage because they are not covered under your regular Physical Damage insurance.
Who needs trailer interchange insurance?
If you have a trailer interchange agreement, you need Trailer Interchange insurance to protect you while you're in possession of a container or trailer that you don't own.
A trailer interchange agreement is a contract that arranges to transfer a trailer from one trucker to another in order to complete a shipment. Typically, the trucker in possession of the trailer is responsible for paying any damages that are incurred while they have the trailer.
Limits, deductibles and other details
With Trailer Interchange insurance, you must select both a limit and a deductible. The limit is a single amount that describes how much your insurance company will pay if you use this coverage. The deductible is the amount that you agree to pay out of pocket to help with the repairs or replacement.
