    Also Country Companies.

    About $4.5k/ year for two trucks and equipment, $2 mil liability, no employees.

    Good service on claims. Have used them 11-1/2 years.

    My family uses country, they are soon to loose me though. It's taken a week, 4 or 5 phone calls, and still no word on if they are going to insure me for my own plowing stuff (sub now). Agent said that their commercial department may not insure me being so young with only 2yrs experience, said he would have an answer today, I got no phone call. And their liability rate for my truck is through the roof compared to American family.
    I've been driving for 3yrs, no tickets, no accidents I caused (one that wasn't my fault), $2k a year for liability on my truck this year.

    I'm looking into American Family.

    StateFarm.... and if you make a claim on me I'll sic their attacks dogs on ya. Actually I find them very easy and cost effective to work with.

    Price really depends upon you. Your record, claims, age, status, multiple policies, etc, etc, etc. I don't think anyone is all the much cheaper than the next guy these days so, keep in mind service, support, etc.

    OK..... I live in Wisconsin, but After being with State Farm for over 40 years for EVERYTHING.... they said they did not offer a commercial policy for my land scape business I started five years ago.

    Had commercial with them for 30 years with my other business?????
    I am with State Auto now.
