Do you have any suggestions on how to get insurance if I’m not currently insured?

Yes. For vendors who are not currently insured, we would suggest talking to your local insurance agent to get a quote for a policy to protect your business and extend coverage when you are working on site at other locations.  A few vendors obtain single day insurance coverage from credible online sources, so you may be able to find other options online
