    I'm about to get my enclosed trailer within a month and was going to get insurance on everything at that point. How much does it cost to have about $18,000 worth of lawn equipment and a $6000 trailer insured?? I've been using the search button and all I seem to find it Liability insurance. Thanks for the help

    My insurance will only cover equipment $500 and up. So weedeaters and edgers, blowers are out. Mine is only $750 a year with Allstate. Don't know about trailer. I use a cabover.

    I'm paying about 1400 a year for replacement value insurance but that also includes a 1,000,000-dollar liability policy on the business. But like your self I am covering around 25 k in equipment the trucks have their own policy’s.
