MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio - Small business owners depend on all the vehicles in their fleet, whether it’s one or a half dozen, says commercial auto insurer Progressive. Two new commercial auto insurance coverages from Progressive are designed to help to keep small businesses on the road and on the job.

Roadside Assistance provides 24/7 towing, battery jump-starts, tire changes, emergency fuel delivery, locksmith service, and on-scene labor.

Rental Reimbursement pays for a replacement vehicle following a covered claim.

“Small business owners can’t afford to be without one of their vehicles, even for a day,” said Cory Fischer of Progressive’s Commercial Auto Group. “Our new coverages will help keep our customers on the road and in the black.”

The new coverages apply to pick-up trucks, vans, SUVs, and passenger cars used by small businesses. Available in 19 states now, the Rental Reimbursement and Roadside Assistance coverages are expected to be available nationwide by the end of the year.
