    I have been looking into buying a plow for my truck to keep me busy this winter because of the slow down in construction. I would like to sub myself out, and I have a few questions. From what I read here will I have to provide my own Insurance? and where is a good place to get it? Thanks, Dale

    You could try going thru your auto insurance company. All they would do is swtich the insurance over to a business for say 6 months on just your truck. You wouldn't have to switch it over on your wifes car or anything. Make sence? I priced it for me and it was like 1200 for 6 months thru my auto insurance company. That was with 1 ticket too. They base it on your driving record and everything. I know there are cheaper places out there but it is a start. Good luck this winter.

    Its hard to get GL coverage if your not self employed, commercial auto can be purchased from most carriers.
    Im not sure for subs if you need GL or not, when I subed I had commercial auto and GL. My plowing General Liability is an add on to my Contractors insurance. The add on is around 450 per year. Commercial auto for the 05 Ram is 1200. My other truck 95 Gmc liability only is 400 per year. I have Auto Owners for the trucks and GL.
