    Bobtail insurance proper name is unladen liability is only available if you are leased to a company.
    There is insurance available just not called bobtail, tell agents what you need

    Not true.......technical name is Non-Trucking Coverage.....is available to any trucker who isn't operating under an authority and or a BOL.

    The Berkshire Hathaway companies......National Indemnity Group and Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies both offer non-trucking coverage.....liability while operating not under an authority or BOL and phys dam.

    I spent most of the morning trying to find a insurance company that wanted my money, some just didn't call back and some didn't even answer the phone,did 3 or 4 online apps for insurance and only 1 called back and said they couldn't help me, insurance companies must be swimming in hundred dolla bills.
