The first thing you need is business insurance on your truck and trailer. Then a general business liability policy. These are a must. Minimum is at least $500,000 on each policy.IMO.

The break points on insurance are 300k 500k 1 million 3 million and 5 million

The price difference on your GL between 300 and 500 is minimal $100-200 per year. Same for stepping up to 1 million. IMO the least you want to get is 1 million but it does depend on your assets and state law.

I would get minimum 500k liability on vehicles. Get comp on your trailer. Mine is $50 per year. For GL get 1 million and get an equipment rider to cover your expensive equipment. My 1 million policy with 30K in itemized coverage ($500 per incident decuctable) for equipment is $1080 per year.
