The average cost of commercial dump truck insurance
Owner operators can expect to pay anywhere between $2500 and $8000 for commercial insurance on a single dump truck. Where you fall within this range depends on factors like what materials you haul, how far you haul them, and what your driving record looks like. But mostly, the cost of your dump truck insurance will be reflected in how large your truck is physically. Larger trucks can cause more damage and are therefore more expensive to insure.

How to reduce the cost of your dump truck insurance
Prices vary widely from agency to agency. The only way to ensure you’re getting the best deal is to compare several insurance providers at once. The easiest way to do that is to use an online tool (like this one) to get in touch at once with multiple agents, representing different sectors of the commercial insurance industry.
Package your insurance
If you’re an owner/operator, package your different coverages (liability, physical damage, etc) under a single provider. If you represent a fleet, package the insurance policies for individual trucks with one insurance company.
Ask for an experienced driver discount
Drivers with a CDL should ask for a price reduction.
Consider a seasonal insurance policy
A dump truck doesn’t need to be insured if it’s sitting in a garage all winter. Try to find a seasonal insurance policy where you only pay when you need it.
Pay your insurance in full
Policies that are paid year-to-year rather than month-to-month cost less in the long run.
Insurance companies often offer small discounts to those who pay online.
