    I know this topic has been discussed on here before, but I would like to get some current information.

    What insurance companies are you guys using? What does your policies include/cover? and what is your cost?

    I know wording has a lot to do with cost and coverage. I want to make sure that I am covered without paying for something that I dont need.

    In Southern California, I am paying $113 per month for 1 mil. coverage. 60k in sales. Call and get quotes from brokers, you don't have to commit to anything. It's based on your sales so you will have to project what you will make for the year. Workers comp is more and hard to get, that's based on your projected payroll.
