Finally got my general liability insurance.
I got a $1 million policy for around $270.00 per year. I asked him if he accepted out of state and he said yes, so those that are interested you can give him a call or go to his website and get a quote. He said he writes policies for a lot of catering companies.

That is a great rate! Very Happy Mine is up for renewal this summer, but I will be talking with Gregg before then.

Thanks Alex! Very Happy

Good rate and great networking.

I think many of us will be inquiring about that GL carrier.

You got that right Tom....
This sort of rate makes getting started ALOT easier. I`ve been on the outside looking in for a few years wanting to get a little moble onsite service started, small parties of 50-150 but with the thought of $700-$1000 a year for insurance how can one even start small. I wonder if they want to know how many years a fellas has been cooking BBQ some places don`t want to take a relative newcomer with less than 5 years experience. Know what i mean.
Thanks Ranucci for posting this valuable info.

I jsut got a quote the other day for 2 Mill liability for both my catering company and my sauce that I plan to start selling. All this for $600, which is better than what I have now. We will be switching when it comes time to renew.

Good morning Alex!

Milt (Curt) just sent me an e-mail informing me that Lockhart does not offer insurance either in Florida or New York! What's up with that- I thought Greg had told you he would offer insurance to out of state clients?

Evidently, AARP does not offer anything here as well. I had looked into that myself a few month's back when your dad told me about the great deal he was getting.

My insurance is up for renewal in June, so I was hoping to get a better rate! Shocked

An update:
Much to Greg's credit at Lockhart, he contacted me right away. Evidently he offers insurance thru Auto-Owners, and he himself can only offer insurance in NC/SC.

Just wanted to save you (and Greg at Lockhart) some time in wasted inquiries.

I contacted the Auto-owners link that Greg at Lockhart provided me. Unlike Greg, I have yet to hear back from them! It's only been a week, and my insurance isnt up until June so they still got some time! Laughing

Good morning milt! Very Happy

I work with Novak specialty insurers out of Seminole Florida. My insurance is good thru the entire state. Not sure if they can help you, but it is an option. Thier phone number is 727-393-0640. Back when I first got started, they were the only option I could find. I pay $720.00 a year for $500,00 in general commercial liability insurance. They can bump it up to 2 mil for a few dollars if i ever need more for a particular event (of course that will be added into the clients bill! Wink )

Best Regards,
Mike
