    Our subs are required to have their own insurance.

    General liability for snow, vehicle insurance and Workman's comp for your guy's.

    It's pretty easy to fall and hurt yourself in the snow and Ice, The bigger problem is damaging property under the snow, concrete curbs, plastic sidewalk drains etc. It all cost $$$ and someone has to pay the bill.

    One thing on insurance........anyone you sub for can cover you, actually they have to if you can't prove you have your own coverage. We let our subs choose, if they have thier own coverage, thats great. But for guys who don't have a regular business of their own sometimes it makes better sense for them to add themselves to our ins. To be added to their insurance expect about a 20% premium, ours is 12%workers comp and 7.5%liability. I used to work for a guy who charged more than he paid, which to me is wrong since he's already making money on you working for him.........but anyway, good luck!!
