I think I said DOT# to him. I got busted my fist year . I had my dump truck pulling a dump trailer. It was empty but I was over. He pulled me over just because I had a name on the door. He said to me he always knows the new guys. I don't know what the ticket was worth but my buddy who was driving lost his DL.

I see.. My accounting is done with a P&L and on the software I use for scheduling/ routing. It just wasnt worth it to me to spend another $250 on something I already had.

Hey guys sorry to jog the topic here but have any of you guys done any work for Ultra Elite property preservation. I was contacted by them and wanted to get some opinion on them if there was any. I have heard it is easier to work with national companies rather than smaller regional. Any suggestions?

Holy Cow this thread has been alive since 2004!! I just realized that and responded to someone from years ago lol! I was wondering how they were mowing April 1 in Indy when its been so cold this year. Anyway I am located in Ft Wayne. Been in biz for 8 yrs in this love hate relationship. (When the $ pours in I love it, When its a drought or no snow I hate it) But I wouldnt trade it for the world! I love being a landscraper!! In response to some recent posts.. I incorporated myself on the IN.Gov site and it was easy. I dont have DOT # cause as long as your total weight is below 9,000lbs you dont need it (unless that changed?) Also if I think I am a lil on the "heavy side" with bobcat and a load I go thru town and stay off the interstate (better safe than sorry!) Anyway would love to connect/talk and network with any of my Indiana brethren! Good Luck to all this season and feel free to ask me any questions. If I can help I will! (I have made my share of mistakes and have learned a lil along the way). We are entering our 9th season and while not the biggest operation by any means we do good work and I really enjoy what I do for a living. Lets chat or you live near by, lets drink sum beers!!

Horizon Jay I've been looking into doing my LLC online also. But wasn't sure how difficult it was. Also I believe if your truck and trailer combination has a GVWR of 10,100 then you don't need DOT #'s for in state travel. I'm not sure if that covers outa state though. Great to hear from some indiana guys. I'm from the Logansport area. 2nd year in business. 1st year doing lawn treatments.
