Myth: You Don’t Need Business Auto Insurance Because You Drive Your Personal Car

Many personal auto insurance policies exclude coverage for commercial (a.k.a. business) use. That means if you get into an accident while running to an office supply store or the airport for your business, you might run into difficulties with your insurance provider.

The insurance needs for your car will depend on how it is primarily used. In other words, if you use it most often for business purposes (but sometimes for personal uses), it will likely require commercial coverage. If you use it most often for personal purposes (with the occasional business errand thrown in), it will likely require only personal coverage.
