I'm working on business plan for my LCO next spring. Trying to figure out what some of the costs will be. So far I have this: Equipment - 30,000 for top of the line equipment. general liability insurance- 600/year commercial truck insurance- 700/year 1990 chevy truck. gasoline - calculating 5200/year maintainance of equipment- not sure about this one. Pest control license test- Anyone from Texas can correct me if I'm wrong, but so far as I can tell it should only cost around $400 to get it. advertising- 1000/year - at least this is what I'm planning to spend next year. Those are the only ones that I can think of, I'm sure there are many more, if you can think of any please post it. Keep in mind that this is for a solo operation.
