I always like to have that im licensed and insured just so people know right off the bat that im not just a noob looking to make some quick cash. And the free estimates on there never hurts either, but if its too cluttered I would leave the free estimates off.

The card you uploaded via pdf is pretty packed with the logo, phone, tagline, info line, and free estimates line. Due to the green background element of your logo, you're giving that as must space as you are your relevant business info.

General question: does anyone think "free estimates" is even necessary or has it become filler? I can't recall a single time anyone has ever asked if an estimate is free or even mentioned it.

Or move your logo up, allowing the green to bleed off the top edge, freeing up some real estate.

I second moving the logo up and letting the green bleed off the page.

I would also make sure not to have any green behind the phone number, you want the number to be very easy to read.

Are you willing to do a double sided card? Have just your logo, phone number, and slogan on the front. That would be clean and not cluttered. Then on the back have a brief bullet form or however you want of your offered services.
