crafters insurance question

I'm looking into insurance to cover me in case at a show a storm blows away my tent (and lands it on someone) or in case someone trips and hurts themself in my booth. So far the quotes I've gotten have been $500 annual. Does anyone else out there have insurance? Is this what you pay?

Re: crafters insurance question

Lori,
I'm doing the same thing. I've got a company that starts at $150 annually, another artist friend reccomended them. Let me get the paperwork together and I'll post it shortly. The company name is RLI I believe.

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

1-800-777-1344

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!

-Jen

PS
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.

Re: crafters insurance question

I was very pleased with how quick and easy it was to get liability and product insurance as well as property coverage from the ACT Insurance Program. It is all done online and is explained very well. actinspro.com

Re: crafters insurance question

Try to call different companies. Also it's important to know what your insurance includes. Many insurance companies don't include material goods etc. I like actinsprobut there are many others just search on the web, like RLI, fractured atlas, try search on www.artisthelpnetwork.com etc. Also try to talk to your homeowner’s insurance agent.
