July 2022 - 15% increase
Jan 2023 - 20% increase
Jan 2034 - 18% increase (They've already sent me the bill for this one)

That's not inflation. That's gouging.
I understand (I have 48 vehicles) it's costly.

I also get parts shipments every day (3 today / Sunday)

Many parts are unobtainable, and in the case of an insurance claim, they will be paying the 4x increased rates for rental car while your wrecked car waits 3 months for parts.

It all adds up.

I'm not a fan of paying many thousand dollars / yr to auto insurance companies. But it's required.

BTW, for my main daily driver, I pay 10x the value of the car every year in insurance, just for liability.

That's cheap compared to my semi trucks, and very cheap compared to my Dump trucks.

Woa, you have 48 cars for renting? You should have some type of commercial insurance that's a different rate than personal insurance.
