I have used the search feature and found nohting yet. I need insurance to get these lots. Can somebody point me in the right direction. I'm going to be by myself I have contacted an insurance company any promised me a bunch of stuff and have came back empty. I'm really pissed off cause I don't want to lose this opportunity. I'm in MA and I need help badly can you guys please come through for me. I need names and numbers. I nned to get this done so I can slowly build my business, but I have hit a brick wall full of idiots in my may and could really need to help

    CNA is a national insurance company they are the ones who hold the policy. You have to call around to agents in your area and see if they use/offer CNA. Sometimes their ads in the phonebook or internet will say that they represent certain companies. You could also try this link to find an agent near you, http://commercial.cna.com/agentloca...A&CamSite=commercial.cna.com&CamTitle=CI_Home

    $1400.00 general liabality, which clearly states snowplowing. I forget the exact company name but they are out of Husdon New York and are under Federal Insurance laws and they over ride the the lovely red tape BS MA state laws

    Mind sharing the name of the place?

    What does the $1400 cover? Is that the entire vehicle for the year, collision and everything when your not plowing?

    1400.00 is for a million dollar policy that covers my landscaping and snowplowing, It insures me not the truck. My truck is covered under another insurance policy. I have flagship insurance in New Bedford but they moved to somewhere else
