    See if Erie Insurance operates in Michigan. They always seem to be the lowest priced. $1 million in liability for $295/year.

    i have not had any claims as of yet (knock on wood) but they do return my phone calls proptly or answer my question right on the spot. I have requested multiple copies of my certificate of Ins. mangement companies have received them without delay.

    I checked into Erie and they do not service New Hampshire. Any other suggestions? Also if anyone is from my neck of the woods, what coverage do you get and for what cost?
