Three-wheeled utility all-terrain vehicles, or UTVs, were first released in the 1980s and quickly become popular. When it was discovered they were too dangerous, the four-wheel-drive utility AT we know today was released a few years later. UTVs are used in construction, hunting, ranching, farming and recreation, often with an advantage over other types of ATVs on certain terrain.
If you are part of the growing UTV trend, you want to make sure your investment is protected. UTV insurance from KADAIR Insurance will protect your UTV from a range of possible hazards, including collisions, liability and theft.
Do not make the mistake of assuming that your homeowner’s policy will protect your UTV. While you can add an endorsement to your home insurance, this will only cover you if you are on your own property. If you leave your property to ride, you must have the protection of a separate ATV or UTV policy.
You may even be required to carry utility ATV insurance, depending on your state, where you will ride and what your ATV is used for. Virtually every state that requires coverage has a minimum liability insurance requirement to meet.
If you will use your UTV for work-related purposes, you may need to carry commercial vehicle insurance with a coverage minimum that is higher than a policy for personal use. If you have financed the purchase of your UTV, you may also be required to carry comprehensive, and collision coverage, for the life of the loan.
While not every state requires ATV insurance for riding on private land, many do require you have an insurance policy if you ride on state-owned land, such as a state park.
Even if you are not required to have insurance, it is a smart choice to protect your investment, as well as yourself and any passengers. A collision or roll-over -- which is the most common type of UTV accident -- can result in injury to yourself and others. Without insurance, you may find yourself dealing with very high medical bills or even litigation.
You can choose among several types of coverage options for your UTV insurance policy, including:
Do not go out for another ride without protecting yourself and your valuable investment. Are you protected if you get into a rollover accident, strike a utility pole or get injured? Utility ATV insurance is an important part of owning a UTV, and much more affordable than you may think.
You can also save even more on your UTV policy by qualifying for discounts, such as insuring more than one ATV or UTV, combining other insurance policies or transferring an existing policy.
KADAIR Insurance will help you find the perfect UTV policy to fit your needs with the coverage you need at an affordable price.
