I am looking to get some idea for local rates on snow removal here in Suffolk County. I have been plowing for someone getting paid hourly and I am assured if I have more trucks they can be put to work by my boss paying the same rate.
- What I would rather do Is have the other truck working on some small lots or residential stuff in the area. There are a few issues with this.
- First issue is that I have no idea what your typical homeowner or small business owner is willing to pay. Allowing for travel time and comparing what I get paid hourly by my boss i would not expect to take any jobs for less then $50. What I need to knnow is an approximate on what the competition would charge.
- Also, my personal truck is what I plow with now, and when i asked about the price of insurance if I registered it under my business name as a snowplow, the quote was astronomical. When I get this 2nd truck and hire someone to operate it, I will need it under a business name. Should the rate be so much higher then regular personal insurance?
My boss also will only pay me in my name instead of the business name. Something about workers comp. Can someone in NY let me know what all I would need to employ someone, what it might cost, requirements, etc?
