Question Company logo on personal truck?

What are your thoughts on being asked to put company decals on a personal vehicle? I manage a small company but do not own it and receive no compensation for my truck. I just bought a new truck in '19 and really don't want it stickered up. I told them that and said it would be different if they were paying for my truck and insurance. The PM that works for me was asked the same thing and seems to be fine with it. I feel like company logo decals can be a magnet for someone to attempt to cause a wreck thinking they can get something. Besides that, I just don't want decals on my new truck. Am I being petty? How would y'all feel if your company asked you to do that?

I wouldn’t do it unless they were paying for the truck and insurance and fuel. Why should you advertise and be held liable for nothing. No way!

That would be a NO from me. If they were paying for the truck or you had a car allowance that the company paid for, maybe. But a brand new truck that I bought and paid for, no stickers or magnets other than what I would put on there myself.

You're not being petty at all, I'd never put company decals on my personal vehicle. Now if they paid your vehicle note and insurance that's a different story. Even then I dont like anyone having that kind of influence on my personal property.

I agree with the others, its not petty. It is YOUR vehicle not theirs. If they want the advertisement of rolling billboards then they need to pay for or rent those billboards, not just the message on them.

You get in a accident and someone gets a photo of that to your insurance company and your insurance may not cover you.

I would not want to do it and I don't see how they can require it if they are not compensating you

On the other hand if your income depends on it, I might have different thoughts

But for me I want no banners, bumper stickers, or decals of stick figures p**ing on my vehicle at all

My wife works for USAA and I just asked her about your question , her response was “usaa will not cover a personal vehicle with wraps or company logo leaving you libel in a accident they have a list of companies that will
I would politely decline the request

No. Also, never take your truck on site. If they want you taking your personal truck on site, they need to compensate you (More than just mileage). Not to mention 99% of owners require company owned and insured vehicles on site only, and personal vehicles are not allowed on site. That is usually spelled out in the contract.

Pretty weak as others have stated.

Maybe get a couple of door magnet logos and charge them $X a week for advertising fees during business hours?

I wouldn't do it unless they were paying my insurance.

As you pointed out that makes you a potential target with deeper pockets than you really have.

Some folks will gladly bend over to everything their company wants to shove in them, your PM is probably one of those types.

If it's not in your best interest then don't do it.

Have you asked your boss why they want that?

Keep in mind that some state regulated businesses will not allow magnetic signs.

Additionally, you will want the company's insurance to cover you. (Especially the liability) Which usually means you will be required to carry a higher insurance amount, than many do normally, and once those limits are exhausted the company's insurance kicks in.

You can also get into a taxable gray area if the compensation doesn't reflect actual business use. The IRS has an allowable cost per mile and certain rules. For example, a normal commute isn't business travel.

company logos or decals make a personal truck turn into a business truck and that is a different animal in the insurance world. To an Adjuster looking at your vehicle if you were to get in a wreck the first question is why is this insured under a personal auto policy? I wouldn't do it.

Agreed with what everyone else has said... no way would I put a company sticker on my truck... 1 they don't pay 2 you become a target...

I hate to say it but I dont even put hunting stickers on my truck because it makes it a target for people looking for guns... was at a hotel for a hunt and every truck that had hunting stickers on it broken into all other trucks were left alone.

They accepted my answer of no without much being said. They just wrongly assumed that I wouldn't mind some advertisement on my truck. I didn't even think about the insurance ramifications should something happen.

Management is awesome...it's me lol. It's a very small company and I'm the General Manager. It's the two owners that asked. We've turned a company around that was acquired last year and things are going well. I guess they figured it would be more advertisement. They can decal their truck but I'm not going to.

PLUS....you are ALWAYS repping the company every where you go...day and night. 7 days a week.

So if you are only driving 80 in the fast lane, you will give your company a bad name for those going slower AND those going faster.

No win here.
