    Hey guys, looking for some contact info for insurance brokers in gta. Ive been plowing since before i had a license as my dad has always done plowing he got out of it about 8 years ago and we worked for other people as employees. We went out on our own this year and are having a horrible time with insurance. Just heard back from my broker and he said i have to go somewhere else.... and the season has already started! ( apparently he didnt understand our convo where i said im going to plow this year....) I've called a few other brokers in my area after searching and finding some are using Lombard.
    ........ They said no way without giving a quote.(local broker who uses lombard).... no one wants to insure plows from what im being told. what the heck is everyone else doing?

    great site by the way,

    there's a company called southland insurance that advertises in Turf & Recreation magazine that says they cover snow removal, google them and give them a call. my insurance is through co-operators and i haven't had a problem with them

    I use co-operators for pick-ups and State Farm for anything over a 1 ton.

    Can't explain why, but huge difference with State Farm and larger/commercial trucks - so I split it up this year.

    Looking for Insurance came across this thread.
    Same here just renewed our insurancre this month with a 15% increase. We've had no claims since 86', actually we are rated as 9 star company. Whcih means no clains in the last 6-7 years. But still a large increase for us.
    Once this winter season is over We'll have to look for a new broker/insurance company
