    Liability, you got that right!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And far too many people don't understand liability, thinking "oh it'll never happen to me".

    Also keep in mind that if your employee is taking the truck home for a perk it is supposed to be reported to the IRS via his wage statement at the end of the year.


    Here is what my employee handbook says about the matter.





    Last summer I allowed the company truck to be taken home and it was immediately used for all kinds of personal use.
    I didn't think I had to explain how it worked. But I did.
    I put a stop to that behavior and now its in the regs.

    And while it was at an employees house my brand new chainsaw got ripped off.
    That was the end of that.

    LOL



    I found one on the net that some one else had written for their company and then put it online for all to use that wanted to.
    I had to make a few changes and additions for my company.

    If any body wants a copy of it to adapt to their use send me a PM with your email.

    How does a personal insurance policy go about paying for a work truck?

    Unless thats a state specific law I don't think I could do that with my policy.
    Not from the discussions my agent and I have had.

    So long as they are driving it for personal use. It's the same as if you are driving a buddy's car and you cause an accident. Your insurance pays it not the policy the vehicle is with. Of course your friend would still be subject to law suit since he owned the vehicle that caused the accident

    I have never heard of this. As far as I know and what my insurance agent says the vehicle is covered not the driver.

    What if you are driving your buddies truck but you don't have a vehicle or insurance?

    FOR SURE.



    And I highly doubt the employee's personal policy is going to pay for broken things like plows, commercial grade riders, commercial grade trailers and things like this!!!!!!
    Heck they won't even know what those items are.

    And I sure would not count on his insurance paying for those things!!!!
