    OK so I've ran into a few trucking accounts with maybe 1-3 big rig trucks used for local delivery / transportation etc. Each they're with Progressive & somehow I can't find a market?

    What's the deal in this market?

    the deal is it is a VERY tough risk.

    Progressive is crazy all the auto they are writing right now .. so hard to make $ in any business auto let alone trucking.

    I am not sure if Northland still does it .. Universal/Zurich will do some towing .. but they are direct.

    no doubt.. tough class to place.

    So what's the concept w/ towing risks? Be the first to write them w/ Progressive OR you have no chance?

    Honestly... yes.

    Much like the livery class (limo/taxi) there are like 1 or 2 large players and by and large the class operates on just BOR'ing each other.

    Unless you can sell a carrier on a captive or be ahead of the curve when a new player jumps in.

    I know some of our agents on QuotePie use National Indemnity Company for their trucking and transport risks. Could be worth a shot.
