Well, you will need your service vendor's license. Go to www.tax.ohio.gov and that will give you a very good idea of items you will need. It costs 50 bucks to register your name with the sec. of state, the vendors license is 25.
You need to have commercial auto on truck and trailer, then general liability policy as well. I pay 500 a year for GL through nationwide for a 2 million policy. You dont necessarily need a federal id, since you are sole op, you can just declare your income on your regular taxes at the end of the year. You dont necessarily need a cpa right away, but it would be good to have one, since they can help and make the set-up process much easier on you.

Good Luck!!!! Tom
