    Alot of it!

    Commercial truck insurance
    General Liability
    Then you need to figure out how must you need.

    Find a broker to help you,then find another one to compare the both of them.

    Don't forget...
    worker's comp insurance (if you have an employee)
    insurance on your equipment (plows, sanders, etc) more for theft than anything else here.

    A lot of time you can have a part of your GL policy cover your equipment for theft and vandalism, mine does...I commend you for going about this the right way right up front!
