Yes I do know and do have separate liability insurance for the daycare. The issue was when the homeowner's insurance was aware of the daycare, they refused coverage regardless of the separate liability insurance for the daycare.

True, but State Farm will cover a legally running childcare home for liability up to 6 children (provided you ask & pay for the extra coverage)... been using them for many years , no issues. I just bundled my home, auto & daycare liability & they let me pay monthly

Ours dropped us a couple of years ago because of "too many" claims and the same company dropped my FCC friend because of a bigger claim for tornado damage.

Insurance companies stink.

No I have not found anything for homeowners insurance. I have tried both Progressive and Geico.

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

Do you have a mobile home or Modular?

If you have a modular, do not call it a manufactured home, they do not always ask if it is a mobile home or modular home and will deny you because they do not do mobile homes. (This happened to my brother when he called back and said it was a Modular, he got a quote.)

If you can't find an insurance company directly, try an insurance agency and have them search for you. They can sometimes find companies that you would never think of calling.

I have Farm Bureau, family home up to 6. I left Liberty because they would not do more than 3 kids. State Farm was runner-up but was higher than FB. AAA will not talk to you if you have a daycare.

hwichlaz For 12 you have to get separate daycare and homeowners.

My daycare insurance is through Assured Child Care Insurance.

Honestly I haven't made any calls in 2 weeks. I have his number, I will call him. Last 2 weeks of school were crazy after crazy. Haven't had any quiet time to make a call. May just email him instead.

lovemykidstoo Where are you in Michigan? My husband has a friend that owns a Farm Bureau agency in Saginaw. I can ask him if they would do insurance. You're looking for homeowners and also daycare?

BumbleBee It's a long story, and one that wasn't my fault (agent f'd up), but the short version is I'll be without homeowners insurance as of August of this year. I'll write the whole story later, right now I'm just p*ssed off.

So the basic facts right now:

State: Michigan

License: Group Home, up to 12 children

Home type: Manufactured home

If anybody in Michigan has a manufactured home and runs a home daycare, please either respond to this thread or PM me. I've been on the phone for the better part of the week and I'm hitting a dead end.

The issue is it's a manufactured home, if it was stick built it wouldn't be a problem, but it's not. So that's where I'm at.
