    This is my first post. Just joined the site a couple of days ago to read and learn. I recently got 1,000,000.00 gl and 6800.00 on equipment for 600.00 a year. However, I will not be doing any snow plowing. I don't know how the rate I got compares to others.

    look for an insurance broker...this way you can shop a few companies at once.

    I was quoted about two weeks ago: 1,000,000 gen. liability ins. and 12,000 in equip. just less than 600/year.

    1 mill GL with 200,000+worth of tools listed with them (but not all on one truck). No plowing-- $860 a year
    But I am 44 years old with a good credit rating, never any claim on any insurance, locks and alarm on storage lot. That may make a difference but I still think it is high
    I am with the Hartford and they also hold worker comp, and 2 of my investment properties.

    My personal home and auto is with Statefarm and they will not cover any business with less than 2 years profit. (yet they cover all 7 of my car/trucks, business or not) They also will not cover any of my rentals. I have Erie for other rentals and they were higher for my business by about $200
