    I am just suggesting not to lease in the first few years. If you was to tell them you had no interest in leasing when you was insurance shopping your rate would be lower right now. True That! Wish you all the Luck

    $1K a month sounds like a "pull a number out of my ###" for these insurance crooks.

    Insurance guy once told me that by assuring you will not be leasing on other drivers will result in a lower quote. The agent may or not know about this. If he not aware you can ask to find out. Normally a agent’s goal is to sign you up. A few things I have learned my agent never knew so she was not able to suggest ways to get the best quote. I really like when I am running a load I have all the time in the world to talk.

    Yeah, you have to get an agent who specializes in Trucking. I'm with Progressive but I used Coastal Trucking Insurance for my agent. That's of course one of the things they asked is will you be leasing on or hiring any drivers.
