    Could someone please point me to some website where I can get an insurance quote? I'm new in the business, it would just be me working, maybe 20 yards a week, hopefully a few commercial. What exactly do I need?
    Just a business license, insurance, and pay taxes?

    How much do ya'll pay for insurance?

    go to the state website and search the requirments, its not required for residentual but you do need insurance.... i called my homeowners policy holder and they fixed me up..and try a search on insurance..... you will need to check with the state, county, and city that you will be working in to see if they require a license...and i think i read here that there is some kind of mandatory contractors license in NC .... use the search button for this and you will find the conversations of the guys from that state discussing it....some states require that you collect sales tax, ohio does, many dontt check that too..'

    good luck...
