    Hello, I'm starting a new lawn maintenance business in CT. I have a few questions I was hoping someone could answer. How do I go about registering my business ? What are the minimum insurance requirements ? Are there any publications that I can send for ? Thanks for any information.

    Hello Jammer, My business will be located in central CT. Have you had good luck with the Powerstroke diesels ? They seem to have a ton of torque.

    Well good luck to ya skmodmsl I started mine on the coast of CT this past May I'm already running 3 trucks and aside from what looks like a rather bleak winter the year is looking very promising coming up. As for your questions I found we are required to have home improvement contractors license that was rather easy to get as for insurance well I don’t have any idea what the minimums are I got a 1 mill policy on the business and 500 k police per accident on the trucks I guess id recommend just get what you feel comfortable with. I have replacement value on my equipment cause while iv never been robbed I don’t intend to find my self out of business one day if that was to happen as for publications once you got a tax id and are licensed your get so much junk mail like that your get sick of it rather quickly
