Welcome and good luck! I'm sure I won't be the last one to tell you, but start out by using the SEARCH option on the top menu. I have been involved with LAWNSITE.COM for about a month now, I asked alot of questions at first, but now I spend hours upon hours reading threads from way back.

I would choose the TRUCK/TRAILER route. Now you can place the daily debris in the bed of the truck and all your equipment on the trailer.

As for the medical/health insurance route....can't suggest anything at this time for you, I'm a solo and my wife carries my medical insurance.

So again I wish you the best of luck!

health ins.

I do not know why, but the health ins. industry hates us. (self employed) they tend to give us a reasonable rate the first year, then raise it through the roof. That is the part of running a business that can kill you, especially if someone in your family has a pre-exsisting condition.They will not cover anything associated with it. Almost every self-employed person I know has insurance thruogh their wives' jobs. I am seriously considering taking an extra day off so my wife can get enough hours to get health ins.
