Insurance Rates in MA

Hi, I was wondering what you guys are paying for fert/ squirt coverage in MA? I got a quote for around $1000.00 and that seems high considering I already pay $750.00 just for general liability. Thanks for any info.

you should be able to have one policy that satisfy both those needs,
the ma lic insuance requirements are listed right on your license paperwork and
renewal form

if your agent is not willing to do a little homework on whats needed, you might shop around a little

Tax A Chussetts

Ladies and gentlemen,

Please don't forget to fasten your seatbelts!

The Democratic party can't figure out why MA voted a Republican into the Senate.

Even the doctors are bailing because of the hefty taxes and insurance!

Don't take me too seriously I was there once!

LOL!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info jbturf. My GL policy runs out in June so for now I am just looking for pesticide coverage. Does around 1000.00 seem high for MA?

id say thats ballpark- im no insurance expert, but why cant your current policy be
amended to cover you? just seems crazy to be paying for 2 liability policies

I don't know what line of business you're in other than pesticide application but I remember being asked certain things that I would be doing which then in turn would determine the coverage and the costs associated with the work performed. There might be a chance you could just alter the policy you have right now.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I'm taking the pesticide applicators prep class and exam in April. Any pointers or insight in terms of what to focus on? I've ordered the materials and they should be here this week. I've never taken this test before but I have licenses and certs in other areas. Is it highly technical or is it focused more on common sence? Any help would be great.
