Damage Coverage and the Safe Driver

safemoveIt is better to be safe than sorry, they say. Though this decision seems like a no-brainer, many people don’t feel the need to get damage coverage. These people often feel they are invincible because they are normally safe drivers. Though being a safe driver does help when driving a moving truck in unfamiliar territory, it does not guarantee that everything will run smoothly.


On or off the road, anything can happen to your moving truck. Whether you are a safe driver or not, you can’t account for the drivers around you. There many different scenarios where your truck would need to be covered. What if someone runs into you? What if your truck is hit while it is parked? Depending on where you are moving to, rocks can fly up and crack your windshield. There are also chances of your truck being vandalized while you are sleeping. You don’t have to be inside your truck for damages to happen.
