Busted Window

I'm gonna fess up!!! LOL. I was doing a new account last week and didn't really walk the yard to check things out. As I was riding I saw some loose stones and hit the pto I thought in time. Out of the corner of my eye I saw glass shattering. Lucky for me (I guess) it was the back window of my Blazer. Made a quick phone call to the glass company and they wanted $450.00 to replace it. With pending rain I called a local salvage yard and lo and behold they had one already taken off and waiting for me. $75.00 and they helped me put it in! Lesson learned........walk a yard before cutting.

I've busted my back door glass out twice at the same account almost a year to the date. Both times I went to a junk yard.

When they built the airport here long ago they dredged out a "lake" for fill and sold some of the low quality stuff as fill to home builders, full of small pebbles and stones. Those homes can be real costly accounts window wise.

You need to think about full-coverage business vehicle and business liability insurance. It costs a lot less than you think, and less than a the newest triple pane bay window you could put one through. It's just the cost of being a legit business, and yes it is fully tax deductible. You don't want to be wishing you had it when you need it.

Insurance

I have submitted to receive insurance quotes. Haven't heard from anyone yet, but you are right.
