    Also check McGriff Siebels. They are independent agents who write for several companies.

    Their number is 503-943-6621. Ask for Promise.

    Florida is one of the highest States for insurance. Car and truck but not double
    progressive is also a higher company to insure with, at least that's what I've heard on the truck side

    New start up shouldn't be as big of a hurdle with your experience unless the insurance company either found something else or they are thinking you are a new driver. Make sure they know you're experienced and are just doing your own accounts

    Call Judy at 407-478-5881. She is with Benton&Parker in Orlando. She is a straight shooter and always gave me the best rates. I shopped prices every year, and she was always the lowest.
     
    Gitana Thanks this.

    I definitely will, have a couple agents shopping around. At least they have told me there are indeed other companies. We'll see.

    When I began my own authority out of Nevada progressive wanted $28,000 for interstate insurance then capped it at a 750 mile radius. TBS offered me a policy at 12,000 a year. And that was the cheapest I could find.
