Progressive, the nation’s #1 truck insurer, has introduced new products that save their customers time and money. Progressive’s new phone app allows customers to pay their premium, get instant proof of insurance and even file a claim. For minor collisions, you can now take photos of the damage and have Progressive settle the claim while you deliver your load. With the company’s 24/7 service, your claim will be processed at lightning speed and you can choose when and where you would like to have the repairs done. If you choose one of Progressive’s 100 approved repair centers, as a Progressive Insurance customer you will go to the front of the line for expedited repairs. You can also check the status of the repairs on the Progressive phone app.

Another new feature from Progressive is their “Smart Haul” program. Give Progressive permission to look at your driving habits and you will receive a 3% discount automatically. Safety conscious drivers can receive up to an 18% discount. The average discount is $1,300 per year and 40% of Progressive commercial drivers receive a 10% or greater discount. The program is available to individuals and fleets of up to 9 vehicles. ” Smart Haul” works through the truck’s ELD and Progressive monitors the truck once a year. 

Not only is Progressive the #1 truck insurer in the USA, they are also the #1 insurer for new ventures (owner-operators) and #1 in federal filings. Progressive Insurance is not zone rated.

Progressive has partnered with the St. Christopher Relief Fund, which benefits trucks who cannot pay for their medical bills. Progressive has launched a new website, www.truckerterritory.com, which is a lifestyle website for Professional Truck Drivers. There are tips for healthy eating, exercise and tips on managing your business. There are also free certificates for vaccinations redeemable at truckstops and pharmacies across the country. Progressive is also participating in St. Christopher’s “Rigs For Cigs” program to help drivers kick their smoking habit. As a direct benefit to the St. Christopher Fund, drivers and download a free song, “Ride With Me” and Progressive will donate $1 for each download, up to $5,000.

The nation’s #1 truck insurer understands truckers and trucking and wants to be sure that you are treated as #1.
