    Your rate is going to vary according to your location, number of employees, type of work performed

    Fore me my rate for $1M is $1600 per year while a good solo buddy of mine has $500k for just over $400

    Fantasy, what's your volume if you don't mind me asking? I got a quote from Nationwide for 1m @ Around $800 for less than 15k. I'm assuming your volume is much more than that and does that number include your inland marine?

    the gross is only a small factor ....they use estimated yearly payroll & the # of employees as the main consideration .... beyond that it's scope of work ie spray, tree, construction all cause a higher rate as well as W/C rate

    Like I said a good solo friend of mine is $500k for $400

    In my case it's 5 full time 2 part time ..... maintanence only .... no install, spray or chain work ... this is not with equip replacement value & commercial vehicle with Allstate is $1200 per year per vehicle
