Insuring your expediting business trucks

When you drive over the road, your truck is your livelihood. When you’re not driving, you’re not making money. Having the right insurance company when you need it most is incredibly important. Susan Medline and Kevin and Tracey Wallace know from experience what a difference the right company means. For them, insuring their expediting business with Progressive made all the difference. They wouldn’t consider another insurance company for their long haul trucking business…

Susan explains,

“Life on the road for a trucker is different. You can’t anticipate what’s gonna happen from moment to moment. The scenery changes every day. It’s the only job that I know if you’re somewhere you don’t like you can get in the truck and you can leave.

My name is Susan Medline. My company is Medline Expedited and I am the owner. At 40 I had a life changing experience. My husband Jerry had always said that when our daughters grew up and left that we were going to go trucking. And I told him he was out of his mind. He drug me into trucking and now I’ve drug him into owning trucks. The biggest reason I started doing this is I wanted to be a stable owner that people can get into my trucks and know that I’ve got their back.

Kevin & Tracey came to drive for me at a time when things were really difficult for them and didn’t even know if they wanted to drive any more.”

Kevin Wallace knows how important it is to have a great commercial insurance company behind your trucking business.

“Two years ago we’d lost our truck in the Joplin tornado. We rely on having our equipment. That’s what makes our money and gives us the ability to earn a living. So it was very important for us when we looked for a new owner, one that was reputable and also had good insurance. We know how huge that is for our own financial stability.”

Susan continues,

“If I had not had Progressive Insurance in December of last year I wouldn’t be sitting where I’m sitting right now and that is no joke. I had a total loss on a truck. Within fourteen days the claim was settled. Within thirty days I replaced the equipment. If I hadn’t had Progressive, if I hadn’t had that one stop call where there’s somebody always there when I call, it could have been a lot, lot worse financially. Because the way my business is run, if the truck doesn’t make money none of us make money. So having a good insurance company, a good insurance agent, has made a huge difference in my business.”
