Driving for Uber or Lyft? We have to talk about your coverage!

More and more people are using their vehicles for ride-sharing services and while this might be a good way to earn some extra #money, you might not be covered by your personal #auto #insurance policy.

Here is how it works: when the #Uber App is off, your own personal auto insurance is covering you. When you turn the app on and a passenger/customer is in the vehicle, Uber’s insurance policy is active. However, when a Uber driver is searching for rides also known as “trolling,” there is no coverage from your personal policy and Uber’s coverage is limited.



Additionally, while Uber’s policy might offer some liability protection while you are driving a passenger, the damage to your vehicle might not be covered under either policy.

We offer several carriers who have relatively inexpensive “rideshare endorsements” to make sure you are covered properly. Consider talking to us today about adding this coverage so you are properly protected.

Riverside Insurance is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our accessibility coordinator Julius Luciano by phone at 970-999-0101 or by email at JLuciano@riversideinsuranceco.com . Your feedback will help us make improvements.
