    Last number I found was $5.08 per hundred. Hmmm…seems like a hell of a lot of money does it not? Must be a hell of a lot of people making a buck off this system.

    Is this normal for your area? Do you shop this extensively every year?

    Tom I haven’t shop it in a while. But earlier today I did tell my wife that I wanted to go through all recuring expenses and see if we can’t cut costs. So this will be one of them. I don’t know for sure but I think I read where fla. is one of the worst places for worker’s comp. I know it is for insurance of almost any kind. Example when I moved here from Ohio my car insurance doubled. My house and garage liabilty have gone up 3-4 times the last few years with no claims.

    Is this only due to hurricanes (not sure I see why they would affect work comp?) or is there more to it? What are the things about Florida that make all insurance rates so high?

    Get this. My wives towncar burst into flames in the driveway. Company truck parked next to it. I only had liabilty insurance on the car. Same with the shop truck. Nationwide who I have been with for over 27 yrs does not want to pay for the damage to the truck. Why? Because the truck is owned by the company that I own. Right now I m argueing that I only own 51% My wife owns the the other. We are a S corp. It kills me I haven’t had a insurance claim with nationwide since 1989. Just for info one of the things they brought up is how much personal use I get out of the company truck. It might be a good idea to check insurance policies. The company truck has progressive. We are no in the process of reviewing all of our insurance ie: business, home, car, and life.

    We use Paychex who uses The Gaurd, with this program it was cheaper and we have them takes the costs out weekly. This prevents surprise audits and keeps you up to date weekly. Saved over 2K this year vs 2007. hope that helps.
