We connect you to coverage
Many people don’t realize that commercial truck insurance requirements vary from state to state. There are rules and regulations that govern different sizes of rigs, their travel and safety requirements, and how they are operated.
We make sure that fleet owners are set up with the right coverage for their needs. This includes factoring in for incidents that are specific to the South (e.g., hurricane delays, re-routing, and damage).
You don’t need to go searching for the best rates – we connect you to the best coverage available in our network of insurers.
We’re with you every mile
As your fleet grows, we are with you every mile, no matter how long or rough the road. Our customer focus means we are always here to answer questions, resolve issues, and perform annual policy reviews to make sure your coverage matches your changing business needs.
Talk to us when you’ve got questions about:

- Insurance requirements in your state
- Incident-specific questions
- We’re here to make the complicated world of commercial truck insurance work for you.
For too long, the commercial truck insurance industry had few options and fewer people specializing in this highly regulated type of coverage. Truck drivers and fleet managers were dependent on a few companies that may not have had the best solutions for their insurance needs.
On September 1, 1980, Sue and David Miller founded American Insurance Brokers, Inc. They imagined an insurance company that understood their customers’ needs and put them first. With extensive backgrounds in the insurance industry and a commitment to customer service, they knew that what people needed was to trust their insurance agent and to have peace of mind with their insurance coverage. Sue and David wanted their customers to have a high level of confidence in them as insurance agents who could provide the commercial vehicle insurance that Louisiana businesses were looking for.
In 1983, Sue and David Miller’s daughter, Jill Whelton, joined the family-owned agency. For 24 years, the family worked hard to build a successful, reputable, and trustworthy insurance agency. Over nearly two and a half decades, they began to refine their offerings to focus on the commercial vehicle insurance industry across the South.
In 2007, Sue and David handed over the reins to Jill, who now owns American Insurance Brokers, Inc. For over 40 years, AIB has offered the best truck and commercial vehicle insurance in Louisiana. We are now a full-service insurance agency serving the truck insurance industry in seven different Southern states.

The states we serve include the following:
Although they are all located in the same region and face the same federal insurance regulations, each of these also have state-specific regulations. Our insurance specialists will make sure you and your fleet have the protection you need, no matter where you live and drive.
