I have a few pretty general questions about getting started. But first heres a little background on myself. I have been in landscaping for 3 years and im currently working for a large landscaping company. Myself and a co-worker are looking to partner up and start our own company. This summer we plan to do it "part time" after work ect. Stick out next winter and plow for the company. Then in the spring of 06' we plan and quitting our jobs and going full time. Now we have almost all the equipment we need and that area isnt a problem. So that brings me to my questions. What steps do we have to take to register our company and get a "federal ID number" I assume this step is necessary? Ive been reading about Insurance, Commercial insurance on the truck and at least 1mil in liability. Now is this all that really is required to get up and running?
