    I would like to know how my insurance coverage and premiums match up with other companies. I do most of the work myself but occasionally use a helper.

    I just bought general liability and workers comp.

    The GL is $500 for $1,000,000 coverage with $500 deductible.

    The WC is a ghost policy for $750.00

    How does that rank with yours? Am I paying too much?

    $750 for WC on your pt helper is probably alot...but you will get a refund after they audit you. 5 hundred for a mil GL coverage is pretty good IMO. Does that include inland marine coverage (theft on equipment) as well??? Probably not I would think...
