Tow Trucks in Illinois are required to carry Commercial Auto Liability, Car on Hook Coverage as well as Garage Liability. Presently several Tow Truck owners have contacted Urban, looking to replace policies they had through Progressive after discovering that Progressive sold them policies without the required Garage Liability coverage.
It is our understanding that Progressive (While a good company) does not even offer Garage Liability coverage, despite the fact that it is required to legally obtain “Tow Truck Plates” in Illinois. It appears that some certificates were worded in a way that let them slip past the Secretary of State’s office. It also seems clear that the Secretary of State in Illinois, has now caught their mistake, It is this reason that so many Tow Truck owners are switching their policies away from Progressive Insurance, and turning to Urban Insurance.
