    After years of working as a landscape designer, I have completed all LARE exams and submitted to the Arizona BTR for Landscape Architectural Registration.  

     

    Now I am on the hunt for professional liability insurance.  I have only gotten one quote, from Leatzow Insurance, who came highly recommended on this site.  Being a frugal and thorough type, I would like to get multiple quotes.  Does anyone here have any other insurance providers they would recommend for professional liability?  

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you going to be doing design/build with your own company doing the installations? If not, I think that you probably want errors & omissions insurance rather than liability insurance.

     

    My agent gave me “Victor Schinnerer (sp) Insurance Company” application forms for E&O.

    James,

    This has been discussed in various forms before on land8.  It is difficult to give/get accurate information on this site because insurance regulation is a state affair, and what may be true in Ohio won’t be in California.   I suggest talking with other local professionals or talking with a local independent insurance agency which may give you competitive quotes.

    Keller-Lowry out of Colorado is great at what they do.  They will ‘hunt’ for the best quotes.

    Outstanding customer service as-well~!

    it is always a good idea to go to a large broker and ask them to get you a quote from the market to suit your own circumstances.  You may fancy asking insurers direct then find you actually dont save money even paying a brokers commission.  The answer is awlays a lemon though, u got to suck it to see how sweet it is.  Another thing is that the broker should have wording specialists to safeguard you and like a lawyer you can sue them if they foul up (or issue third party notice of you get sued).  You may consider that is worth their commission.
