    I'm paying about $350 a year for the same. I'm with Erie. Farm Brearu has the best rates but you gotta have good credit. I could get it for $150.

    1 mil coverage, 350, but that doesnt cover equipment.... that is why yours is more, also depends on years of experience, next year im covering equipment too, it will go up a little

    American Family gave me 2 million coverage for everything including tree work below 35 feet, all for 300 bucks. No equipment coverage. I am not worried about it. I leave my keys in the truck at night. Crime is low in my area I live outside of town a good ways.
