Hitchings Insurance Agency has special expertise in a few Commercial Trucking Insurance segments specifically. One niche that we focus on is hot shot trucking insurance. These are operations that are hired to haul various items from one specific location to another. Most of these trucking operations are picking up campers, RVs, and automobiles from one dealership and delivering them to another. Although hot shot trucking can be done with all types of cargo, we see a majority of trucking operations fall into those 3 categories.

We also specialize in grain commodities hauling. These are operators who typically run a farming operation and truck in the offseason or during downtime to supplement their income.

The final Ohio Trucking segment we specialize in is dirt, sand, and stone hauling companies. We have great competitive pricing on fleets below 25 power units, trucks that are 20 years and newer, and trucking companies with good claims history.
