Protect Your Taxi Company with Taxi Insurance

The main source of transportation in big cities such as New
York City or Chicago, taxis offer many people the convenience of not
having to deal with the responsibilities of owning a car. For a taxi
company to thrive, however, it must possess a quality taxi insurance
policy to protect not only their employees, but the customers as well.
A recently published article on InsuranceAgents.com explains how vital
taxi insurance is to a company. To compare insurance rates, fill out
this form now.
“Not only are taxis a cheap alternative to owning a car, they also act as our own
designated driver after a long night of over-age drinking,” the article, Taxi Insurance: Protection for Your Yellow Vehicle, reveals. “At the end of the day, however, a
taxi is first and foremost a business, and any legitimate taxi company needs taxi
insurance to protect their business. Operating in an industry that results in over
two million passengers injured each year, taxi insurance provides taxis with the
assurance that they will be protected in case an unfortunate incident occurs.”
Unlike standard auto insurance, taxi insurance provides a number of coverage options designed
particularly for taxis. This includes liability coverage that protects the cab
company, the driver, and the company’s assets. It also includes comprehensive
coverage against vandalism, theft, fire and other damages caused by an accident.
There are certain requirements a taxi must first meet before even being considered
for coverage. On top of functioning as fare-based, taxi drivers must also be between
the age of 25 and 65, have a valid driver’s license for more than two years in the
United States and possess a clean criminal record.
“Obtaining taxi insurance can be an overwhelming process, but the rewards far
outweigh the risks,” the article emphasizes. “Being adequately covered provides you
with peace of mind if an accident were to occur. Contact an insurance agent today to
obtain taxi insurance as a safety net for your company.”
