    Get Commercial Business insurance and truck insurance. If its only you you might not need the work mans comp now. Shop around I know in New Jersey they kill us in insurance.<br>I think we are the number 2 or 3 highest in the U.S. Good Luck Travis AG&G Lawn Maintenance.

    In addition to liability and auto policies, make sure you have insurance to cover your equipment. If something happens to your equipment, you must make sure you have adequate insurance to cover those costs. If not, it could put you out of business FAST.

    I just picked up liability and equipment coverage from a company out here in California that specializes in such with small business. My agent's son is actually in the business as well, so he knew exactly what I would need and walked me right through. I plan to insure my trailer through the same guy...<p>-TGC
