    Around here if you have all purpose vehicle insurance, you HAVE to have lettering on the truck. Not sure about the trailer.

    I have aluminite signs on my trailer, One big one on ramp, two on both sides toward the front. Driving billboard. Don't know why not many lco's won't do it. Cost me about $300.

    Lifetree, my insurance company told me as long as the business is in your name, your insurance will cover at same rate. If you have a sign or any type of advertising that someone pays you for on your vehicle then you need commercial ins. Your higher payment might be the result of going with higher coverage if you were on the low side to begin with.

    Since you are twelve... what type of hitch do you have on your bicycle? I would suggest an aluminium trailer since it is lighter. Are your shovels wood or fiberglass? You seem to be a wood guy.

    I would forget the signs and go with one of those hard hats with a siren on top of it. Put a piece of card board on your bicycle with your business name on it. How many playing cards are on the spokes of your bicycle?

    Please post some pics! Sounds like a sweet set up!
