carAttention Uber/Lyft Drivers!

Truyman Haase Zahn Insurance now has an outlet to get you better coverage while you are participating in the new ride-share outlets coming to our area.

As a brief explanation, Uber and Lyft are ride-share companies that offer a convenient, inexpensive and safe taxi service. Riders can hire a private driver to pick them up and drop them off at their desired destination through the convenience of a cell phone app. While this is a great service for the consumer, the problem with this is most standard insurance companies do not provide coverage for delivery of persons for hire on a personal auto policy. What this means is that if a driver gets into an accident while “clocked in” to Uber/Lyft, they will most likely be denied coverage for the claim and the only coverage they would have would be limited to the minimal limits that is provided them by Uber/Lyft. With costs to repair vehicles and medical procedure costs increasing every year, most of the time the driver will be stuck paying the bills not covered by the insurance from Uber/Lyft.

Recently, Truyman Haase Zahn Insurance has established a third party outlet that will extend coverage from the drivers primary auto insurance while they are “on the clock”.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact the office at 920-833-6871 and speak with one of our agents to find out if this coverage is something that would help you.
