    Hi Everyone,
    I was just wondering about Insurance Pricing.
    What would be a good price to look for when shopping around?
    Whats everyone else paying? Got any good recommendations?
    Do I even need to get Insurance right out the gate?

    Heres alittle background about me to help you answer these questions:
    I been in the business 2 seasons. I started with my dad doing larger commercial properties, Apartments, factories etc... and I remember paying about 600 dollars to insure us both on the job. We didnt pay any workers comp because we didnt have any "employees" per say. Anyway to make a long story short the partners thing got in the way and I decided to start over on my own in Louisville, KY. So Im planning on starting out doing residential mowing part time then working my way from there.

    Thx in advance,

    Go to the Business forum on here (where I'm sure this thread will get moved to shortly anyway) and do a Search using the feature at the top of the page and you will find about 10 million post on insurance.

    Cost will vary greatly depending on a ton of factors and could range from $200-$2000 a year depending. The only one that can tell you for sure will be a local insurance agent, and YES you need insurance, period. Good luck.
