Hello, I was wondering if anyone has recommendations on insurance? I mainly do indie stuff. This is kind of a side note but I also have renter's insurance with Progressive, but they don't cover bigger ticket singular items. Does anyone know of an insurance agency that would cover a full rig? I think Progressive maxes out at $5000 for one item. Any information would be awesome. Thanks!

Thanks for the information Tim. On the WP Dolle website it states that they will only insure Steadicam Operators Association members. Do you know if that is true? Is it hard to become accepted by the SOA if you are new?

It's easy to join SOA. Just fill out the form and pay the onetime fee. I went with W.P. Dolle, they DO check your membership but are a great price. And if something does go wrong they have a great reputation for taking care of you. They also offer Personal Liability through The Hartford who is also a very reputable company. That too is reasonable.

That is very helpful. Thank you for letting me know this!
