Pizza delivery is not covered in most personal auto insurance policies. If you plan on getting a job delivering pizza using your own vehicle, you will need to find a carrier who offers Hired and Non-Owned Auto Coverage in a commercial auto policy. It is important to make sure you are covered in the case of an accident. Some pizza companies have their own insured vehicles that delivery drivers use.
Progressive offers pizza delivery vehicle insurance. Its policy can be customized to reflect on-season and off-season usage of your vehicle, including times when you will not be delivering pizza. There are certain discounts offered that may apply to you. Progressive provides flexible payment options including an online bill pay service. Progressive is one of the largest commercial vehicle insurance carriers in the nation. The company has an A+ rating from A.M. Best, a company that provides credit ratings and financial information for companies within the insurance industry. Progressive operates a customer service hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
