Years ago when we needed insurance on a logging job and no one would underwrite locally, we ended up with a company who in turn went to Lloyds of London, at an affordable rate even.....

so if you talk to an underwrite who is hesitant, ask them if they have looked into http://www.lloyds.com/ that they might help you and others in the area.....

Currently i dont have insurance for the mill side of the operation, and is the primary reason i quit being a contractor in Idaho, I dont believe in limited liability as way of life and in accordance with Almighty God i believe i am in good standing....... from what i read in the Historical political record book most folks know as the Holy Bible anyway.

If I end up with financing then i have to accept man's way of living over what Almighty God tells us to do and that means geting isurance again to cover losses and prevent idiots from trying to take advantage of an operation..... and if i hire an employee then i have to cover them too..... mostly cause it is a law that the insurance agents got passed to be able not to produce anything in life.... just sit there and take in funds and go to conventions once a year.... [guess my opinion of some folks is not what they themselves think and may be slightly skewed] <---- i suppose not all agents are like that...... cause i know not all sawmillers take advantage of folks.

i know this is an old thread but for anyone out there searching though the history books like myself, i have full coverage through Westfield Ins Co.  actually we have the house, property, buildings, personal vehicles, then my entire tree trimming business, sawmill. business equipment through them.  with the business i have a million $ umbrella which includes my portable mill.  they never asked any questions other how much is it worth.  for the tree trimming part, they asked if i had any experience, everything was verbal, no documentation.  i am in south west ohio.  cutting down 48" dia tree's that are next to a persons house holds way more liability than my sawmill, and they cover both

 Same astaw6243 here in MN + I carry $10000 worth on the mill for another $250, I know that wont replace the mill new but would help on a low hour used one.  Sure makes me feel better with liabilty insurance which covers at home and on the road.  Steve
