    Just wanted to follow up on my insurance quest: I ended up with Progressive Commercial for the truck and Auto-Owners for the general liability. Neither one cared that I was just starting out and the rates were as good as I found.

    Would be happy to provide details if anyone is interested.

    I have also found a couple property management guys that have indicated they will use me as a sub when needed, so this may come together after all.

    Thanks for all the education.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the general rates that you guys pay? Some companies want to charge almost what we can make in a season, its unbeleivable!

    sschario, funny how that worked out. I had recommended looking into a couple of companies. I have always used Progressive Commercial also, although that wasn't one I'd mentioned. I didn't think they offered insurance in your area.

    Snowybowtie, around $800/yr for $300,000. That's pretty low on the natiowide scale. I'd discussed with the agent about raising it to a million. She suggested I really should and I agree, just haven't done it yet.

    I just got 100/300/50 for $600/yr and $500K GL for $312/yr. These are based on projected earnings of < $10K/yr.

    thats not as bad as i thought it might be. A guy i used to plow with was telling me that a company had quoted him for 1500 and change for less than 10k, but 800 i can do, thanks! Im kinda shopping around for a better company, ill use that as a better basis

    Where I am, I use Dryden Mutual, Just the liability is about $1000-1200 for million dollar policy. All of my commercial accounts require million as the minimum. Truck with comp and collision is about $600 a year, x2. 2 trucks.....
