How much would Workers Comp, Liability, and auto insurance be for my small business?

Hello, i am in the process of starting a new business and i wanted to know how much it would cost per month to have auto insurance (for one old truck to transport employees to mow lawns, only driving within one city). Workers comp, and liability. We will make about 80,000 a year total just two or three guys (im one of them) working.

Insurance costs are going to vary based on your location. To find specifics for your situation, you need to call an insurer. The other poster did a good job in giving you some rough ball park figures but you just won't know for sure until you call around.

OK, lawnmowing business - no tree pruning, no snow plowing, $80,000 gross receipts, you're looking at $1500 for liability.On the truck, service use, less than 50 miles, liability only clean driving records, no drivers under 25, it will probably be about $2,000 a year.Workers comp, is going to be about 15% of payroll, or $2,000, whichever is HIGHERKeep in mind, the general liability and the workers comp will be AUDITABLE policies - so after they expire, if your business did better than expected, you'll owe the insurance company more money.

Great question and analysis. I wish more people would look at the laughable state minimums and recognize that they aren't enough.The answer depends on what you have for answers to protect, but I normally suggest a minimum of 100/300/100 for liability limits and 50/100 for uninsured and underinsured...

What is the best way to relocate from one state to another?
Not too hard but requires planning. SO, for auto insurance simply ask for a quote from your current company based on the city you want to live. If they require an address, find an address based on a location you MIGHT want to live. Housing is easy to find on-line and you will have to rent...

In Ontario, how does auto insurance work? Do you need to insure yourself as a driver and your car separately?
Yes you insure the car and yourself as the driver and then can add drivers and more coverage to the policy if you want to.Basically you must get a standard coverage such as 1 million dollar liability or basic coverage if driving it.Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way shop around for...

Why would an auto insurance company delay a ruling?
They don't make rulings, they have "findings". If they aren't making the 'finding', that means they're missing some information, or something is unclear.Their policyholder isn't liable, until a judge says they are, or until they accept liability. Police do NOT determine fault - they only...
