Our auto broadening endorsement extends and expands the coverage of the commercial auto policy. This important extra coverage, normally limited or excluded from a standard policy, goes beyond the normal scope of auto insurance, to further help your business recover from a loss. What’s more, they’re provided for a fraction of the cost of purchasing them separately.

Some highlights from the coverage enhancements include:

  • Blanket waiver of subrogation: Clarifies that the insured can waive our rights of recovery from others prior to a loss
  • Broadening named insured: Automatic coverage until the end of the policy period for newly acquired organizations where the insured has controlling interest
  • Employee as insureds: Any employee is an insured while using a covered auto not owned, hired, or borrowed for business or personal affairs
  • Glass breakage deductible: Waives the deductible, if the glass is repaired instead of replaced (not available in Massachusetts)
  • Hired auto physical damage: Included for a limit of $50,000
  • Hired auto: Worldwide hired auto coverage for 30 days
