A policy for your tow truck insurance might include:

Auto liability protects your business in the event of an accident.

Physical Damage

Physical damage coverage protects you in case of unforeseen disasters (i.e. a storm or deer strike) as well as accidents.

Garagekeepers coverage

Garagekeepers coverage protects you if you keep your client’s cars in your shop or on your premises. Vandalism, theft, collision, and fire are the main risks that it is intended to cover.

On-Hook/In-Tow Coverage

On-hook coverage protects you while you’re transporting a customer’s car. If something were to happen to the car being hauled, such as a collision, you can be covered.

General Liability

This coverage provides protection for the business as a whole in case of bodily or property damage caused to someone else. (Note: this is often required if there is a salvage yard or repair shop)
