Especially in Maine, cars and trucks are vital to many businesses—and a potential source of significant loss. The specialists at Allen can make sure yours are covered adequately with the right business auto insurance policy.

At Allen Insurance, we start by asking you pertinent questions about your business vehicle ownership and use. Do you:

  • Personally own the vehicle and lease it back to the business?
  • Move other people’s property in your vehicles?
  • Deliver product to your clients?
  • Carry people for a fee?

We then create a specific plan for your company, offering the appropriate selection of coverages.
