    what is it you guys do as far as your snow removal agreements? have your attorney write them up or make your own and get it approved by the attorney? also I know everywhere and everyone varies but what do you guys pay roughly for your attorney to write one up and or approve your own written agreement? or just say screw the attorney all together lol thanks.

    Ask your insurance company if they have any specific wording or guide lines. Farm family sent us a pamphlet with specific wording that was suggested for snow contracts.

    Yup, but they're just suggestions. I called my FF agent, and they said that they are just throwing out ideas of what they would like to see, but due to "liability" reasons, they don't provide full wording or exact phrases to utilize, but "what they like to see" in contracts.

    Go to the loss control bulletin page and you'll see what they recommend.

    Yup I took that and wrote out a contract with what I wanted to cover. I then sent it to my attorney and he added and worded what he thought it should say. By doing that he had to spend less time on it therefore it cost me less.
