    I have a few questions that I can't seem to find answers for, I've searched Google and the forum without any luck, here's my story...

    Last season I helped plow for my uncle who own's a Snow/Grass removal company that contracts exclusively for a local airport. I would like to continue to do this but I do not have any type of insurance to do so and I'm wondering what type I would need? It's all "off road" if you will, meaning only on airport property and I use all of his equipment. Any answers or advise would be greatly appreciated as I am quite new to independent contracting (if that's what I'm doing) as well as snow removal. Thanks in advance.

    First ask uncle. I bet he didn't have any. Second what does the airport want. 3rd call your insurance company and get commercial insurance for yourself if your going to plow.

    Maybe he's taking over the plowing from the uncle.

    Not me this year not plowing it. When you plow grass it's guaranteed work for spring.
