Bobtail insurance is often referred to as “non-trucking liability.” A bobtail truck is just a tractor without a trailer. So, bobtail insurance will insure your truck when it is not being used for trucking activities.
Bobtail insurance also comes in handy if you own a tractor rig but lease your services to a trucking company and pull their trailers. In this situation, it might not be necessary for you to purchase a full coverage policy. Bobtail insurance will cover your tractor trailer when returning, after delivering your freight and cargo as well as the trailer. You will need to speak with the trucking company you work for and find out what insurance they are willing to purchase on your behalf.
