Default I use American Family

I have American Family, 385.00 per year for a million dollar coverage and adding 20,000 for equipment. 500 deductible.

The equipment is covered no matter where it's at or what's it doing. I choose to let the commercial insurance cover the equipment cover the equipment even at home in the garage because my homeowners add on was way too much and only gave depreciated value not replacement cost.

I have to use a Canadian Insurance Broker however I believe the underwriter is American Owned, Dominion Underwriters Group.

Has anyone been burned by their insurance company and now they find themselves more picky when it comes to choosing insurance? If so, what should you be concerned with when you consider an insurance company?

I got onto zander to get a quote i filled out the form. They didn't ask many questions and sent me a quote. It was like 323 premium or 292 if paid in full. Has anyone used Zander for Commerical?

I have in the past. They are not an insurance company but rather an independent insurance agent so I would be asking who the underwriter is.

I got a quote today for 945 a year and has 500,00 coverage? It is from a guy who I trust and know, but what are some other compaines that everyone uses for lawncare insurance?

That sounds insanely high, but I don't know if your policy covers things that mine doesn't. There are a lot of variables.

Phone books and quotes are free. Take advantage of that.

Nothing wrong with asking here, but it always seems like people are afraid to pick up the phone and start calling agents.

I just got a quote from Greater Texas Insurance (they went through Allied - not sure if they are all through US) and they gave me a price of $350 for 500k with 1 million aggragate. I would defintely keep searching as that is to high.
