    Someone told me he has problems booking loads having progressive insurance. Brokers tell him progressive doesn't cover tarped loads? Sounds like he's pulling my leg. But progressive came in lowest for my insurance renewal so wanted to ask before I pulled the trigger

    I have Progressive and I run flatbed. In 3 years I've only had one or two brokers tell me they don't work with Progressive. Just my 2 cents.
     
    Mattflat362, Doealex and Wespipes Thank this.

    I never had a problem but the insurance industry changes from moment to moment for their best interests. I would ask them about it. I pulled plenty of tarped loads with progressive. They have given me an excellent price
     
    Wespipes Thanks this.

    I've been told that once in 6 months. Ran dozens of tarped loads with progressive insurance from other brokers with no problems.
     
    Wespipes Thanks this.

    I never had a load turned down due to Progressive insurance while running flatbed. The only insurance company I've ever heard of having problems was OOIDA insurance, and that was mostly Landstar brokered loads.
     
    Wespipes Thanks this.

    I've heard that also, landstar is a pain in the ### to setup with so I never bothered.

    The issue may have come from a situation where the driver had told Progressive he was hauling lumber, ended up having a loss when he was hauling OWOH machinery and Progressive declined the claim as they would have charged more if they would have known ahead of time.
     
    Wespipes Thanks this.
