    Hey guys, I got some quotes from my parents insurance company. Here they are.

    General liability: $350 a year for a maximum of 2 million coverage (1 million per man). No chemicals are covered. Not even roundup or anything. How's this all sound to you guys? I thought it was fairly cheap. I just wonder if it will be a hassle if I get licensed to do chemicals switching companies. Another one may be a ton more.

    Workmens comp: $700 a year. (not sure about the coverage, how much per employee.)

    Thanks for your help,
    Brant

    The liability sounds very reasonable. Make sure you get coverage for your equipment also.
