My car serves double-duty – from 9am – 5pm it serves as a “company car” and from 5pm – 9pm I use it for personal use – transporting my family around, running errands. Is there a policy out there to fit my needs?If the vehicle is titled in the company’s name, then more likely you will need a commercial auto policy for complete coverage. If you own the business and you have no employees, then a personal auto policy will cover you. When a business owner’s only vehicle serves double-duty for both company and personal use, commercial auto policy is necessary. There are additional endorsements that can be added for complete protection.
