You definitely need business insurance. You also need to register with Worksafe BC. You don't necessarily need to opt for personal protection.

You can start with homeowner type equipment, but you will soon be looking for commercial.

I started my business in Chilliwack and spread into Abbotsford. I sold and moved to the Sunshine Coast fifteen years ago and haven't looked back. It's a great business to be in.

If you would like to talk, call the number on the truck in the picture. I'd be happy to share my experience.

Lots of competition out there, are you sure about starting your own, and not working for someone else? We have a client who is always hiring for his franchise in the Valley.
