Uber Insurance in Seneca and Clemson, SC

Do you drive an Uber? If so, it's time to start thinking about how well you're insured. Now, Uber itself has a ridesharing insurance policy, but it doesn't cover every risk you might be exposed to, and it could be changed at any time. Having your own policy means that you will always know what your coverage is and thus how to act accordingly.

In general, ridesharing insurance comes in two versions.

  • First, comprehensive coverage focuses on giving you all of the coverage you may need while providing rides to other people. This includes a comprehensive liability policy, bodily injury coverage, collision insurance, and related policy elements.
  • Supplemental coverage is different and focuses on filling in the gaps that a ridesharing service's insurance policy does not cover. For example, the ridesharing service may not cover a vehicle before that vehicle is matched to a rider—so if you're involved in a collision before you find someone to pick up, you'd need to use your own policy instead.

Both forms of coverage are viable options. If you're not sure which policy is best for you, talk to one of our agents about Uber insurance and discuss your options.

Uber Insurance Requirements

Most drivers who work with Uber or another ridesharing company can get this extra coverage. However, the way you interact with a ridesharing company may affect the type of coverage you're offered. When you speak with a Chudyk Financial Services and Insurance Group agent, it’s helpful to have the following information on hand:

  • History of Ridesharing: How experienced are you with ridesharing, and have you had any trouble in the past? Experienced drivers with few or no incidents may be able to get a better rate.
  • Frequency of Work: How often do you provide ridesharing services? Is it something you do on the weekends for some extra cash, or are you offering rides as a full-time job?
  • Type of Vehicle: What type of vehicle do you use, and more importantly, what are its safety ratings? Vehicles with an outstanding safety rating—particularly in parts of the vehicle where passengers are seated—may be easier to insure.

Other Things to Know About Ridesharing Insurance

Ridesharing is still a relatively new industry, and it's almost certainly going to continue changing over the next few years. Insurance policies will be changing with it, and factors like which company you partner with, how safe the rides are judged to be, and even how much the industry earns may affect your policy and your premiums.

The most important principles at this time are laid out in a policy paper adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and drivers are encouraged to read this and familiarize themselves with concepts like "periods" (when each form of insurance applies), potential insurance requirements, and how much coverage is needed when providing ridesharing services. Chudyk Financial Services and Insurance Group agents are more than happy to meet with you to review and explain these principles.

All insurance companies pretty much have the same products to offer. What sets this agency apart is the unsurpassed customer service. The ENTIRE staff including David himself make you feel like you are their ONLY customer. I chose this agency not because their prices were lower but because of the service I received. I have been with this agency going on 2 years and the level of service has never changed. This tells me they not only wanted my business they want to keep my business. If you are looking for auto/home/life insurance or financial services, do yourself a favor and give this agency a shot, you won't be sorry!

David researched an insurance question for me and provided a thorough answer. When I responded with an additional question, David politely instructed me where to find that information in the material he had already provided. Quite kind and patient and clearly knew what I needed. In addition, he was able to respond at a time that was definitely beyond the bounds of the normal business day. Thanks . . .

My husband recently had some issues, as a result of an error with the Virginia Dept of Motor Vehicles. The issue was clearly their fault. My husband showed up at David Chudyk's office after hours and Mr. Chudyk opened the office back up to help him. It took over 3 weeks to have the issue resolved, but Mr. Chudyk and his staff faxed, refaxed and refaxed again the paperwork that they needed as well as made numerous phone calls. I appreciate David Chudyk and his staff for helping my husband straighten this issue out. I feel that they went above and beyond for us.

During an exhausting search for a better price with my clients insurance for Business and personal. I was extremely aware that David was not only considerate but helpful in guiding me to the right coverage at the best possible pricing.. He has went beyond any other agent in my past 25 years has done to ensure that this office and my clients personal coverage was not only what the required but what they needed. In a world of law suits coming for all directions having someone to guide you in what is necessary is what I call above the bar service. Also I am in Cashiers NC and he had no problem servicing our needs from his Seneca SC business office. I plan to let everyone know what an excellent individual / company he is to work with! Again. Thank You David and staff.

I have worked with David over the last year. He has shown me that his main goal is to provide excellent service and adequate coverage to his clients. Recently, I spoke with a current customer of David's who spoke very highly of David's consultative selling approach. In fact, he said that he knows David will always take care of him and make sure he has all the coverages he needs, no more and no less.

David and staff are always responsive to my requests for information and policy changes. My preferred channels of communication are email, phone, and text message, but usually not an office visit. The Chudyk agency has always responded to my requests and needs in a timely manner regardless of which method of communication I use to contact them. Thus far, my experience with Nationwide and the Chudyk Agency have been positive.
