    Great Catch :) Just keep them happy and you may have them for many years. If you have time, remember to send the decision maker a card thanking them for their business.

    million dollar liability general and vehicle.most places around here usaually dont care if your insured or not they just want it cheap.they had an incident last year and the contractor was not insured and the he disapeared.in 5 years ive only had 3 places ask for insurance.one was a gvernment job the other a large corparation and now this one.

    That's kinda funny, because like stated above, everyone has at least $1 mil. in liability. Oh yeah, congrats on the great job! Hope it goes great for you.

    i was in charge of getting bids for snow removal at out FD this year,i cant bid since im on the deptment, anyway i sent out 3 RFP with all the standered insurance stuff listed got 1 back called a few places and most of them said they have never been asked for insurance and dont think they have that kind of coverage.like i said most places around here dont care they just want it as cheap as possible,until something happens.
