U-Haul Truck Accident

Among the most usual accident reports which we witness with rental trucks comes from a crack to the windshield from a rock.

For events that are unexpected such as this, there are several damage coverage options to coincide with your truck rental.

Individuals do not go out of their way to become involved in an accident. Thankfully, there are several cargo protections, damage waivers, and medical & life coverage, which can protect you from financial liability for damages.


Damage coverage is imperative due to the fact most current insurance policies, and major credit cards do not usually cover any rental equipment.

Various personal auto policies do not include coverage for vehicles that are rented with a gross vehicle weight rating that exceeds 9,000 pounds, or vehicles with a maximum capacity of loading over 2,000 pounds.

Unlike the number of truck rental companies, you can select an option among many protection packages with U-Haul, and under no obligation to offer proof of insurance for rental of equipment.

Every protection package covers loss of use of equipment rented. Permissive users or authorized drivers are also covered under the condition they are 18 or older, and have a valid government-issued driver's license.
