Getting Insurance for my production company or for freelancing?

I started my own production company this year with my partner and have spent a few months getting everything in order on the business side, as well as doing jobs. I am currently looking into different options for insurance that would mainly cover our personal equipment which >$15K as well as cover rented equipment, general liability and errors and omissions since we cover weddings as well. Some people have suggested normal run of the mill insurance companies but had agents tell me they don't offer the insurance I am looking for. One company has quoted me a $2,298 annual premium but that doesn't include E&O. So I have come here to see if anyone might have any tips or suggestions on procuring insurance for oneself and/or company?

Hey William, what did you end up doing? I came across this post from a google search, I recently made the switch to freelance, and am looking into insurance options. Also how's your company doing?

I actually went through https://www.athosinsurance.com/ to at least get gear and rentals covered. Its about $500 a year to cover around $12k-$15k for owned gear and the same for rentals. Also our company is doing good, slow but steady process. Check us out at www.Celestialpicturesllc.com

Hey William, how is this service working for you? I've been looking for a good and reliable insurance. I've thought about state farm but have heard poor reviews about their coverage/policies.
