Wisconsin has recently welcomed Uber drivers in Kenosha, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Madison and the Wisconsin Dells. It is as easy as downloading and app and pressing a button, in order to have a ride at your specific location in about 5-10 minutes.
This new craze is sweeping across the United States and in a short matter of time we will be seeing Uber drivers here in Central Wisconsin. As a local, independent insurance agency, we are excited for this new revolution in transportation. However, auto insurance needs to be a topic of discussion when it comes to how these drivers are insuring themselves. Many Uber drivers choose to use their own insurance coverage as they go on pick-ups and drop-offs. This may work in some states, but many insurance companies do not allow personal auto insurance polices to transfer to Uber drivers.
