The Uninformed Shopper Problem
It’s no secret that many insurance companies take advantage of customers who don’t fully understand their options – or go it alone. They often offer policies with less coverage, using cute mascots and funny ads to appeal to your emotions, not your logic. Here are some common pitfalls uninformed customers might face:
- Not understanding the risks they face
- Being uninformed about the coverage options
- No strategy for allocating the insurance budget
- Confused by industry jargon and policy details
- Loyalty to an insurance company costs them in the long run

Shopping for insurance can feel overwhelming, with numerous options and channels. However, one insurance shopping option consistently puts shoppers first: independent insurance agencies. In this blog post, we’ll explore the differences between direct, captive, and independent insurance channels and discuss why independent agencies like Page Insurance offer the ultimate shopping experience.
Direct Insurance: Quick Quotes, Limited Options

Captive Insurance: Local Agents, Limited Choices
Captive insurance channels provide local agents who work exclusively for a single insurance company. Although they offer personalized service, their limitations include:

- Time-consuming to shop each company individually
- Declining market share

As a long-haul owner/operator, you play a crucial role in keeping the nation running smoothly. Over the years, we’ve worked with a variety of trucking operations, from single-truck operators to large fleets. During this time, we’ve identified common insurance mistakes made by long-haul truck drivers. To help you avoid these pitfalls and ensure the success of your business, we’ve compiled the following list of mistakes and advice on how to avoid them.
Not Taking Insurance Seriously
Mistake: Many new truck drivers underestimate the importance of insurance for their livelihood. They may view it as an unnecessary expense rather than a critical investment in their business.
Consequences: Without proper insurance, a single accident can leave you buried in debt and unable to continue driving. Lapses in coverage, late payments, or insufficient coverage can lead to higher premiums, non-renewals, and difficulty obtaining new policies.
Solution: Treat insurance as a vital component of your business. Maintain continuous coverage, make timely payments, and work with a trusted insurance provider to ensure you have adequate protection.
Failing to Think Like a Business Owner
Mistake: Some owner/operators prioritize their roles as truckers over their responsibilities as business owners, leading to poor financial management and decision-making.
Consequences: Neglecting your business responsibilities can result in cash flow problems, inadequate maintenance, and a failure to stay compliant with industry regulations.
Solution: Always think of yourself as a business owner first. Manage your finances responsibly, invest in maintenance, and stay informed about industry changes and regulations.
Poor Truck Maintenance
Mistake: Inadequate maintenance can result in costly repairs, breakdowns, and lost revenue.
Consequences: Neglecting maintenance can lead to higher insurance premiums, out-of-service violations, and even the inability to secure insurance coverage.
Solution: Allocate funds for regular maintenance and invest in the upkeep of your truck. A well-maintained truck is essential for a successful trucking business.
Ignoring Compliance Issues
Mistake: Failing to stay compliant with regulatory agencies, clients, and insurance providers.
Consequences: Non-compliance can lead to fines, penalties, loss of contracts, and difficulty obtaining insurance coverage.
Solution: Prioritize compliance in every aspect of your business. Stay up-to-date on industry regulations and work with trusted professionals to ensure adherence to all requirements.
Neglecting Personal Health
Mistake: Many truck drivers struggle to maintain good health due to the demands of their job.
Consequences: Poor health can lead to decreased productivity, higher insurance premiums, and even the inability to continue working.
Solution: Make your health a priority. Invest in health insurance, stay active, and take steps to maintain a healthy lifestyle on the road.
Not Delegating Tasks
Mistake: Trying to handle every aspect of your business without seeking assistance from professionals.
Consequences: Attempting to do everything yourself can result in missed opportunities for growth, increased stress, and decreased overall efficiency.
Solution: Delegate tasks to professionals like bookkeepers, accountants, and attorneys. Delegation doesn’t cost when it frees you to focus on building your trucking business.
Choose a Trusted Insurance Partner
Selecting the right insurance partner is critical for your long-haul trucking business. Look for a provider with a strong reputation in the industry, a deep understanding of trucking-specific risks, and a commitment to helping you succeed.

We’ve enjoyed working with construction contractors from nearly every discipline for over two decades. This includes painters, drywallers, framers, flooring, cabinets, flatwork, foundation work, generals, handymen, etc. Through all of this, we’ve noticed some common insurance mistakes that can hurt their chances for success. Here they are:
Facing the Reality of Risk
Bad things happen, and construction has one of the highest injury and fatality rates among all industries. You can get sued, stuff can get stolen, you might accidentally damage property, or an employee might get hurt or killed. Understand that while you can do a lot to prevent disaster, there’s always a chance for bad things to happen. Adequate insurance coverage can help you avoid financial losses that can sink your business.
Focus on Coverage, Not Just Policies
Don’t just buy the policy type someone tells you to get. It’s the coverage inside a policy that matters most. According to The Hartford, 40% of small businesses will likely experience a property or general liability claim in the next ten years. Ensure you have the right coverage and limits for your specific needs.
Put Your Business Owner Hat on First
With 50% of small businesses failing within the first five years, it’s crucial to prioritize your business’s health. One big mistake and you can lose it all. Insurance can help protect you against many of the biggest risks you face as a business owner.
Don’t Just Meet Requirements; Protect Yourself
Different entities, like the government, clients, and banks, may require insurance from you. However, meeting these requirements doesn’t necessarily mean you’re adequately protected. The average cost of a customer injury claim is around $30,000. Don’t make the mistake of being underinsured; protect your business with more than just the minimum required coverage.
Know Your Optional Coverages
Insurance can be complicated, but it allows for personalization. 75% of small businesses are underinsured by at least 40%. When shopping for insurance, ask questions and learn about optional coverages or limits that can better protect your business.
No Comprehensive Insurance Plan
Having an insurance professional who can look at your entire account, both personal and commercial policies, can help you identify serious gaps in coverage and save money.
Stay on Top of Changes
Keep your insurance up-to-date and communicate any changes to your insurer. Review your policies at least once a year to identify gaps in coverage and find ways to improve your insurance plan.
Successful contractors build a team around them, including someone competent and caring to help with insurance. We have experts waiting to help you navigate your choices.
As a restaurant owner, you’re not just providing a place for people to eat; you’re creating a space for connection, celebration, and the sharing of memorable experiences. Managing a restaurant comes with its own set of challenges, but it’s essential to protect your business and your finances. Here are some common insurance mistakes we’ve seen restaurant owners make over the years and how to avoid them.
Appreciating the Risks:
Bad things can happen to even the most diligent restaurant owners. Employees and customers can get hurt, fires can cause severe damage, equipment can fail, or lawsuits can arise. Insurance is not an empty expense; it’s a vital safety net for your business. In fact, 40% of small businesses are likely to experience a property or general liability claim in the next 10 years, with an average cost of $30,000 per claim.
Getting the Right Coverage:
It’s crucial to have the appropriate coverage for your specific circumstances and risk tolerance. Don’t just focus on the policy types; pay attention to the coverage details and limits. Ask your insurance provider about any potential gaps in your coverage and discuss optional coverages that may be relevant to your restaurant. Some common oversights for restaurants include:
- Tenant improvements: Essential if you rent your space.
- Equipment vs. Personal Property: Companies vary in how they handle this! Ensure all the property you own is covered.
- Data breach: Protect sensitive information about your customers and employees.
- Employment Practices: Claims or incidents of harassment, discrimination, etc., can be costly. Don’t go it alone.
- Non-Owned and Hired: Protect your business if an employee causes an accident while running an errand for you.
- Personal Umbrella: Ensure you have enough personal liability coverage to protect yourself in the event of a claim.
- Life Insurance: Provide your business and loved ones with the resources they need to carry on without you.
Creating a Comprehensive Insurance Plan:
Many restaurant owners make the mistake of working with multiple insurance agents for different aspects of their business. This fragmented approach can lead to redundancies and gaps in coverage. Instead, work with a single insurance professional who can provide a comprehensive plan, addressing all your insurance needs and maximizing savings through bundling and discounts. Comprehensive planning:
- Avoids potential unpaid claims by identifying gaps in coverage.
- Saves money by discovering redundant coverage.
- Maximizes savings through bundling and discounts.
- Sends the message that you care about being protected.
- Helps you sleep easier, knowing you’ve got a solid plan.
Staying on Top of Changes:
Review your insurance coverage at least once a year and keep your insurance provider informed of any changes in your business. This proactive approach ensures that your coverage remains adequate and up-to-date as your restaurant grows and evolves.
Working with a Trusted Insurance Expert:
As a busy restaurant owner, it’s crucial to have a team of professionals to support you, including a dedicated insurance expert. The right expert can help you navigate coverage options, find the best insurance companies, and provide ongoing service and support during claims.
Workplace injuries are the most common claims in the restaurant industry. Too many claims can lead to higher workers’ compensation premiums. Invest in employee safety by providing non-slip shoes, using Kevlar gloves for cutting tasks, training employees on equipment use, and promoting a culture of safety.
