Welcome to Wayne’s Claims World!

In this series, we share information on claims trends as well as tips and resources for our KBK insureds to better protect themselves if they have a claim. This month, we’re exploring subcontractor misconceptions.

As the labor market continues to evolve, we are seeing more companies — including those in the towing industry — leveraging subcontractors to fill their employment needs. This is largely because it is hard to find qualified, full-time employees in this current climate.

Did you know…
In the past 18 months, we have seen an increase in claims for subcontractors on tow accounts. 

There are misconceptions out there about whether using subcontractors does or does not impact the insured’s policy. The biggest misconception is that subcontractors’ personal insurance policies would take care of any coverage needs.

Learn more about the subcontractor trend and how it can impact your client’s insurance policies in this month’s issue. You’ll find out why it’s a best practice for insureds to employ full-time W-2 employees for their towing operations.

Agents, this is an important conversation to have with insureds for both renewals and new business!
