    Just wanted to check to see if you had to have a "license" to put down salt if doing it professionally?

    Thank you in advance.

    You should delete this thread. The government will read this and impose a tax on "salt license".

    it would be humorous to see the gov. work this one out, considering they are by far the largest user....

    but they will probally exempt themselves.......do as i say and not what i do

    Only on my fries. I am doing research. I am trying to move back home to be by family in MI. I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row. Any training I want to do ahead of time. I am guessing the answer is no. That is great news. Feel free to delete.......Thumbs Up

    There is an extra charge for insurance if you put down salt? I wonder why?

    LOL, you can say that again!

    I had State Farm tack on a surcharge on one of my trucks when they found out I had a spreader mounted on it. Wasn't a huge increase, but it was noticeable. Their reasoning was that there's increased liability due to "flying salt". I laughed in my insurance agents face and told her to have them go back and looksee when the last time they had a claim due to "flying salt". :rolleyes: Anything to soak you I guess... :rolleyes:

    My GL company asks every year in the audit if we put down salt, hasn't made a bit of difference in the premiums though, probably just wanting to make sure we've got all the bases covered.
