Re: crafters insurance question
Sorry it took so long to get back to you with the info:
RLI Insurance Co.
They're based out of Peoria, Illinois but offer policies all over the place
That'll give you the offices in Mechanicsville, NY
I think the company that carries RLI there is John Carriearo (sp?). The phone number will get you to who you need to talk to though. Base rate starts at $150.
I also called my Allstate rep and he refered me to another local person in my area that seems to be offering me a competitive rate to RLI. Honestly, I'm thinking of going with the local guy because I know I can make an appointment to sit down and talk to him in person. Insurance, taxes, etc. all make me VERY nervous, I always feel like a fish out of water. I can talk about many other things intelligently but as soon as you bring these up I'm toast.
Best of luck!
I'll be in OC,MD June 19 & 20 for Arts Alive, if you have time to run down stop by to see me! I'd love to meet you in person.
