    anyone know what they pay for skid steer insurance for snow removal/plowing?...i will need to add it, but @ $1000 per season its almost not worth it...

    last year i would have had only 1 or 2 storms and barely broke even...glad i didnt last year, but i think we're in for a good year this year

    I pm'd you back, unless I did something wrong. I will check. The 10 ft will be fine on your loader. We have a 14ft Viking on a 7420. Our insurance is an add on for snow and we get treated very well IMO. The 5 million liability is where they get you. I just lost a place we've done since 98, now I have 4 extra guys.

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: off topic but SORRY!

    powerjoke, I don't think it was me that you sent a PM to because I never received one

    also, to the best of my knowledge we would not add a chat room here. we had tried one on LawnSite in the past and it didn't pan out and ended up being removed.

    my insurance

    My insurance is based upon billings. Eg we estimate that we are going to bill $45 000 this year and they base the insurance upon that. That covers the liability and property damage of any
    Each truck has full coverage as a commercial vechicle and its an additional charge for it as a plow truck. The bobcat we have is insured for everything eg theft collision ect and it is based upon a dollar per thousand amount. thats the same with our trailers and sanders its all like $2 per thousand per year. We multiple pcs of equip as far as I know its called a blanket policy, it covers anything I own that is out working, if I have a sub, then I have to list them, and they must have coverage on their truck.

    All I have ever done with a sub is just fax in a note with the subs policy number and info.

    One new thing I am very glad my broker added at day one was a clause called 27b where I have coverage on equip that is borrowed or rented. I borrowed a trailer and it got stolen off a job site at night. I got it covered and the owner didnt have insurance on the trailer at all.

    If you want numbers I can pull my policy I belive its with Piolet I live in Ontario
