    This sounds like a ton of work. I wish you the best of luck, you might be buying a truck for your guy to plow with you. Just for your info, not trying to be a jerk this is how to spell TOMORROW(just the dad in me coming out, trying to help)

    Good luck. Let your insurance co know you'll be having an employee driving your truck. You might also have to pay Workman's Comp. Get your ins and WC cost quotes BEFORE you submit the bid so you can factor in those costs.

    Look into a million for liability. I was surprised. I had $300,000 and thought I was stretching it for a half million. The agent just wrote it for the million; cost around $60 a year more.

    In my opinion your getting in way over your head right now. I mean I remember when i was getting calls for big jobs, but i realized i don't have the capablity. Right now with your shaky truck status Id wait or buy another more heavy duty rig. Sorry but from reading your other posts you don't seem ready for all this work, might wanna rethink. Good Luck.
