I own my own company. So I carry $1 million liability insurance on myself. And can provide proof (a certificate evidencing) and even have my agent reference a specific landowner as "additional insured". But even when I offer all those wonderful "assurances" (thinking this will quell their supposed fears and change their "no"), it falls on deaf ears.
Hence I learned that this is just the "go-to" answer, as a polite way of saying "no".
Not really polite........ Not really !
