I was curious as to whether all trucks need this or certain ones?

Just do it and get it over with.



Well, Friday is finally here! Three of my guys will be mowing tomorrow and I'm going to spend a good part of the day doing estimates, meeting people, etc etc. Looking forward to the holiday weekend, but then again, I'm sure it wont be "work-free". Cant complain though. As long as I get to make my vegetable garden in the backyard I will be happy. Also going to try and get the jet ski ready for the season, what else would I do on slow Mondays in the middle of summer?

If you are conducting business with a vehicle it needs to be registered as a commercial vehicle. If it is registered as a commercial vehicle you need to follow DOT laws including having the numbers.

Wow! That was great to watch. How is it that guys like that can do that much damage to a truck, trailer and property and be healthy enough to run afterward? I've seen some wrecks in my day but that truck was all sorts of screwed up. Hope CK's insurance co takes good care of him.

Oh, and speaking of insurance, if anybody wants to have an all-inclusive insurance/tax/financial advisor company to work with I found a real winner.

Screwed up my taxes for 2 years with the help of a p.c...owed more for last year but combined with this year's mistakes I'm netting thousands after the amendments are made. Got a better W.C. policy based on the same payroll for 1/3 the cost. Liability cost is almost identical but with fewer restrictions on my services. P.M. me if you want contact info.
