Compare Trailer Interchange Insurance Rates from 10+ Insurance Companies in minutes
If you pull trailers belonging to others and have an equipment interchange agreement with that company, you might need Trailer Interchange coverage. Trailer Interchange insurance provides physical damage insurance for trailers being pulled under a trailer interchange agreement, which is essentially physical damage insurance for non-owned trailers.
Since the exchanged trailers are not owned by you, your regular physical damage insurance doesn’t cover them and they require a separate insurance coverage.
Trailer Interchange doesn’t require that the trailer is attached at the time of loss. It also includes containers under the definition of trailers, and it’s mostly used for intermodal operations.
Trailer Interchange Insurance requires a “written trailer or equipment interchange agreement” to be in place at the time of loss, so it may not extend to all situations when a trucker has a non-owned trailer in his possession.
