What businesses in Maine require commercial van insurance?

Maine generally requires auto insurance in order to register a vehicle. For cargo vans, commercial van insurance is usually the best choice.

In cases where a van is financed or leased, lenders might also insist on their own requirements. These can be in addition to the state’s requirements. The state is mostly concerned about liability, while lenders mainly focus on protecting the van that’s their investment.

What kinds of vans are insured with for cargo van policies?

Commercial van insurance policies are usually for either cargo and vans, or passenger vans. Most utility vans can be covered by one of these policies.

Passenger vans normally aren’t covered by these policies. Cargo van policies might have some coverages that passenger vans don’t require, and cargo van policies often have lower bodily injury liability and personal injury protection limits.
