    Does anyone have a testimonial to help me decide where to get insurance for the business?

    Well, USAA... but only military or thier relatives get that...

    Basically look around and make calls for quotes. Do you have an idea of what you want? My setup is (I think) about average.. I have 2 million payable per year in Liability 15k on the tools. Workmans comp is a seperate thing here, but not required if you have less than 6 employees and pay a "no rider" fee.. That setup costs me 80 per month...

    I dont know if this company does business in all 50 states, but I got a good deal with Ohio Casualty. I think alot of independent insurance brokers sell for them.....at least here they do.
