If Cal is anything like Ill, Farmers will be over priced.

Two comments:
1) Farmers seems to be writing ANYTHING these days. I've seen them writing Tow Trucks in Ca lately....and they're giving away the farm on pricing, $600 for $1mil liability unheard of for tow trucks...I believe they're going to lose they're collective butts...

2) I would recommend you try BTIS (Builders and Tradesmen Insurance Services) they have a few different programs you can rate on-line that should be able to compete. If they can't it's likely nobody will...
Good Hunting!

Try to get contracted through BTIS insurance. THey will blow Farmers out of the water on any artisan program.

I have PEO markets for the Worker's Comp/Payroll side of things. It is pay-as-you go so it helps tremendously with cash flow, and I have a few for the 4th quarter that are waiving administration fees for 3 months! Let me know if I can help you out!

Plumbing contractors are typically considered a standard market exposure (perhaps less standard if working on new residential tract work or a heavy residential focus). Assuming a decent size, you should be able to get quotes from standard markets such as Liberty Mutual, Hartford, Travelers, CNA, etc.

These carriers generally all like writing Plumbing risks, although given each carrier has their nuances, would be good to contact your marketing rep for each company to make sure they don't have exclusions for work performed (ie. new residential tract exclusion, etc.).
