    in my never ending quest of lowering overhead.. i got my truck insurance rates for this year. $134 a month for 9 months!!! awesome. my first year, i was way above $300, for 10 months. With the sale of my other truck, and the trailer i'm looking for, which is ofcourse a small registration fee.. my vehicle costs should be almost non-existant (not including repairs, and unseen circumstances). I had a dump and a pick up, kept my equipment in the (dump truck)... 2 insurances. now i will have the new pick up and a trailer.
    what are you guys paying for your truck rates? am i just in the normal range, and payed alot in the past? or is this sounding as good to you as it does me? :) payup

    Is that for commercial vehicle insurance with 1million liability on the vehicle?
    100/month sounds cheap. I think we are paying around 130 for just our 01 ford f350 diesel.?

    wow, guess i just feel lucky to be in the normal range. i have had some rediculous rates in the past which i've had to pay. 1 year it was over 4000 for one truck, non-commercial!
    that is for standard insurance. it's good coverage though.
    and that is is throuhg a company called "Auto One". they're in Melville NY,but i go through a broker.
