The market for insurance is always changing in Florida. Obtaining free quotes is a simple step in finding out whether there is money to be saved or at least become more knowledgeable about that type of insurance you’re purchasing for yourself.
For auto insurance, it might be useful to know how you plan on using your vehicle such as pleasure, commuting, or business use on the Florida Roadways. Especially with heavy trucks, which can carry an assortment of goods or services, it is always best to know exactly what it will be used for, your mileage radius from your home or business headquarters, and how often you’ll be visiting jobsites or new clients. This can be particularly important because it gives me, your insurance agent, a better idea of what carriers will underwrite your particular risk and offer you affordable coverage.
Personal or Commercial auto insurance in Florida may be just a portion of the insurance coverage needed. I could also put you in direct contact with other insurance professionals within my office that can run commercial general liability or homeowner’s insurance quotes in Florida, even in the Coastal Regions of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Hutchinson Island and Cocoa Beach.

Are you new to the trucking world or owning your own trucking company? I’d love to help you navigate the roadways to Long Haul and trucking options in the State of Florida, especially regarding your insurance.
The first step of getting into trucking in Florida, once you’ve obtained your hauling unit and CDL License is obtaining your USDOT (United States Department of Transportation) number, FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) number or both. You may be asking yourself, “Which is the one I need or do I need to acquire both?”
What is a USDOT number and why do I need it?
Businesses or sole proprietors that operate a commercial vehicle hauling cargo in state lines must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Registry Number. It is the identification number used “when collecting and monitoring a company’s safety information acquired during audits, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and inspections” according to FMCSA.
What is a FMCSA number and why do I need it?
The big difference between the DOT number and the FMCSA is that the latter is for interstate commerce. Also, a business may need to register for more than one type of authority to support their planned operations such as but not limited to freight forwarder, passenger transportation, and Mexico-based carriers to operate in the US. The USDOT designation is free to those who successfully register for a FMCSA number.
First timers will begin the application process online on the Unified Registration System (URS). You will be provided a DOT number at the completion of the URS registration. You will be contacted after 30 days by FMCSA to validate information and correspond with you about the New Entrant safety program. Then you will be able to obtain your permanent DOT or FMCSA number.
What are my BOC-3 and Insurance filings?
You will also need to keep in mind additional requirements such as the Process Agent Designation, or BOC-3 form. The BOC-3 form will be e-filed by the processing agent on your behalf. A processing agent can be found near you on the FMCSA website. You can also find information about the required insurance outlined on the FMSCA’s website at Insurance Filing Requirements | FMCSA (dot.gov). The insurance company will electronically file with the FMSCA with your credentials satisfying the insurance requirement.
What is a New Entrant safety audit?
For the New Entrant Safety Assurance program, you can expect to be monitored during the initial 18-month period where you must demonstrate you can operate safely, maintain up-to-date records, conduct periodic inspections, and perform maintenance on CMVs. If pass you, you will be granted permanent authority.
How long will it take to get my FMCSA number?
The FMCSA takes approximately 4-6 weeks for processing the application. From the completion of the URS application, you will have 90 days to comply with the application requirements. If you do not comply with all the requirements, then you will have to pay the fees again to reapply.
How do I proceed with insurance once I’ve registered with the USDOT and/or FMCSA?
Once you’ve registered with these governing authorities, you’d want to complete your Commercial Auto Insurance with your required filings.
Typically these administrations require a minimum operating Liability of $750,000 if you’re crossing state lines. I’d be elated to discuss the intricacies of the insurance requirements with you as soon as you’re ready to take the next step to get on the road.

As the weather starts to warm up so do the outboards, inboards and all other marine watercraft propulsion units that had been winterized for our “cold” season. Florida boat owners know the drill and seek the thrill of that day the seasons begin to change and they get to put their vessel back into its natural environment, the water.
Before doing so there is always the proverbial checklist…dock lines accounted for, fenders, lifejackets, oil/fuel levels topped off, all pumps and wells in functioning order, electronics and navigational equipment turned on and inspected…and once everything is in ship shape the time has come to cast away and begin to enjoy life as a boat owner…or is it?
Ensuring that your boat is properly covered is often overlooked until the unexpected happens. Even if you carry coverage on your vessel, is it sufficient to cover your loss and protect you and your loved ones? What about all the new equipment you replaced in the “offseason” while the vessel was on the trailer or in storage…would that be covered in the event of a loss too?
These are all valid questions and concerns that many boatowners share, unfortunately. We here at Barefoot Insurance Brokers of Florida want to alleviate these worries and provide comprehensive coverage for you and your family, on or off the water. With Progressive’s Recreational Lines coverage, we can insure a vast array of vessels and personal watercraft throughout all of Florida!
With Progressive’s Boat/Personal Watercraft insurance, we can protect your vessel in the event physical damage occurs to it, other watercraft and/or other passengers as well as their resulting medical bills from more serious events. In addition to these more traditional coverages, Progressive offers a variety of additional coverages to protect your marine investments and your loved ones:
- Total loss replacement: Your insurer will reimburse you or replace your boat at the original amount you bought it for — regardless of what it’s worth now.
- Trailer trip interruption: Covers expenses for food, lodging, and transportation if your trailer or tow vehicle breaks down more than 100 miles from home.
- Replacement for personal items: Typically covers the cost to replace fishing equipment or any other personal property lost or stolen from your boat.
Let us help take away the stress of worrying about the extent of your insurance coverage and focus on what matters most – your safety and making memories with family and friends out on the water!
Before you hook up your trailer, have your boat pulled off the rack n’ placed in the water or untie those lines at the dock, be sure to give Casey Carroll a call at 321-218-3880 or text to 321-307-7970 to quote your coverage today!
