    Does anybody put multiple trucks on the road but not actually operate any of them. I'm looking for some insight on what I may expect if I set up some trucks and sub them out to other companies.

    With or without a driver?

    More than likely without. I know that opens up the door to the equipment being abused because nothing parties like a rental.

    Guess you need to decide if you want to be in the rental business. The headaches that can come with that are endless.

    I still have the Ranger I plowed with 2 years ago, but don't have a blade on it. I asked my insurance company about putting a blade back on it and having someone else drive it for me. She said I can do ot, but the new driver would need his driving record ran to see what it would cost.
    That was me owing the truck and subbing it out with a driver, I looked but never picked up another plow for it.

    You will need to insure yourself as a rental company if you do not provide the driver.
