Worker's Compensation Coverage
I know this is an older thread but I was in the insurance business for twelve years and know a little about this subject.

I know all states are subject to their own guidlines, but as a rule workmans comp. is always less expensive for your employees that for the owner.  An employee is working by the hour ,day, mile, job and so on and dosen't have as much on the line as the owner, nor do they care as much if it is running or not, just as long as they make their money.

Recommended insurance agents
Gary, are you still standing behind the agents you recommend, specifically Citizens Financial (Jennifer) in Texas?
Well that's it Im done. . .
For now. It was a great year and from now untill after the new year I will shut down. Last year I ran till mid December and won’t do that this year.

My buddy runs a small generator with a space heater(I'm not a huge fan of the idea). But I saw on here that someone said they run two Deep cycle 12V batteries and are runn ...
What happend to insurance costs?
Mine took a $205 per month increase with no CSA hits and a spotless CDL for over ten years. I talked to three different agents this month and none could beat what I have currently with progressive even with the increase.

New guy
Hello everyone, I am Kevin. Thank you for allowing me to join this forum. A little about myself. I retired from the Army at the end of July where I did movement control. Some of the equipment that I was licensed on the M915 tractor trailer and 44 passenger bus. The M915 is a freightliner tractor. I knew I wanted to drive when I retired so I started doing a lot of research on different aspects of it and found that I spent a good 90% of my time reading this forum during my research. The informatio ...
