Truck Gap Insurance – Why is it important?

Truck Gap Insurance – Why is it important?

The moment you drive your brand-new truck off the dealership lot, it’s not the same anymore. This is because after you sign your name on the contract to purchase, your new truck goes from “brand new” to “used” and the depreciation clock begins.

Depreciation occurs from the daily wear and tear that equipment, like your truck (or fleet), accumulates over time. The depreciation accumulated from your vehicle(s) creates a negative balance that reduces the original value your truck(s) once had. Thus, decreasing the amount you could receive from your insurance in case your truck was involved in an accident. Thankfully gap insurance, helps truck and fleet owners combat this cycle and save thousands in cases of accidents, theft, or natural disasters.


What is Gap Insurance?

Gap Insurance is an optional coverage option that you can add onto your truck insurance coverage plan. As mentioned in the name, this addition pays the difference—or the “gap”—between what is owed on the truck and its value at the time of an accident.
