I got in with a property management company and take care of many of their properties. But the only way I could do that is to have liability insurance of $1,000,000. I dont have any employees, so I dont need workers comp. The liability only costs me about $90 per month. Do I think I'll ever need it?, probably not, but it helps me to get more customers, so it is well worth it.

Yes, I want to have liability insurance but I want to be able to research and get the best one for my dollar here in Virginia Beach because at some point I am sure I will branch out into the commercial aspect of lawn care and landscaping but because I don't have employees and most likely won't for some time at least now I know a rough number that should be the ballpark number for me, thanks Little's.

Will someone ever file a claim against you? Who knows. My view is, as soon as you can afford it, get it. Otherwise you are putting yourself at risk. If an injury were to occur and they do happen, you could be hit with a large judgement on a lawsuit that might take you forever to pay off.
