Insurance Recommendations in FL?

I am looking for some recommendations on general liability insurance companies that cover Florida. Hoping to get the best bang for our buck. We have been using Auto Owners in the past and have not been exactly pleased with them/agent. Looking for 2,000,000 aggregate. Thanks

They will probably quote you with Travelers Ins.

Had a question about one of my policies and just called about 5 minutes ago, talked with Drew directly, no problem.

Blackbear would be great since he was a sponsor here....but essentially most of them are just middle men that have one or more companies that they write for.

Travelers is where I started out...then a couple of years in Nationwide became a better company as I have coverage on all my equipment etc. ....but the entire time I never left my agency....they just shopped rate for me through companies that they write for.

Well I guess Drew was too busy or just didnt need my business. Between emails, phone calls and leaving voice messages and NO response I looked elsewhere. Another Lawn-site member highly recommended BOLT INSURANCE -www.boltinsurance.com and I have been very happy with their response their professionalism and price!
