We do, at times, offer a new customer a discount from the regular rate for a couple months, after which time you will pay the regular rate. You will know up-front the discount, number of discount months, and the regular rate – no surprises. We may, at times, need to make adjustments to our rates due to business conditions. We strive to keep a personal relationship with our customers.

If you do not have insurance you are considered self insured.
