Exactly! there are alot of companies, some good some not so much. I'm trying to get info on options, whole year /event, good or bad companies, what coverages are needed, ect.
Believe me I've been searching and the more I search the more confused I get!
Any real world advice would be appreciated.
Thanks, Phil

IMHO, this is a case where real live customer service is essential in the event you would have a claim. Talk to your insurance agent where you have other policies or a local independent agent to discuss your needs and budget.

Talk to your local agent. I recently talked to my insurance agent who covers my house and cars. He quoted a policy for me with $1 million coverage with sales under $10,000 (yearly) for $380 per year.

Our State farm agent quoted us around $300 for a $1M Liability policy but did say that that wouldnt cover Someone cliaming food poisoning. She recomends we check with a different carrier for more of a resturant type policy.

We just checked into insurance with our State Farm Agent and she said we needed two years of coverage before they could cover our concession trailer needs.

A shoppin we will go...

Your insurance underwriter may want you to register the vehicle you are pulling your, cooker and trailer under your LLC or Corporation.
