how are some of you guys getting away with 5,000 on equipment when 1 ztr is 10,000? If I came out in the morning and someone made off with my trailer with everything inside im looking at 25,000-30,000 to replace everything.

Depending where you are in NY $300,000 is not enough. Suffolk County Gov requires you to have $500,000. For $20 more I got $1,000,000 coverage.

Quoted as high as 1,100. I got insurance for $550 a year.

At the very least you need 1 mil gl, commercial auto coverage, and work comp. My co averages about $30k a year in insurance premiums.
