Dear Orchidians, My studio insurance premiums have risen by 70% in
last year and I am looking for a new provider. I am a
studio-goldsmith with a non-retail, “no- frills” shop outside my
home. I have a crafters policy which was $350 annuallly last year
and it has gone up to over $500 annually this year . Seems this has
happened a lot over the years. I find a good policy and the premiums
start sneaking up in cost over the months and years. Does anyone
know of any GOOD policies/ providers that are at lower rates or
care to share your advice regarding insurance. I realize that $500
may not be a bad rate but I would like to get it lower it if
possible. I already asked my provider to increase my deductible and
the rate is as low as they will go.
I don’t mean to rant. I appreciate what having a good policy means
but…to those inevitables Death and Taxes we should add
INSURANCE. Right? Argh! Bruce Raper In Atlanta, where everyone has
