I have no idea what to charge for your service but would think that you would need liability insurance for the truck and business liability for damage and mishaps. Check around prices very alot. HTB

I don't know what the rates are in your area,but that wouldn't be hard to find out. I will suggest you get liability insurance for sure. If you hit one power line or one fiber optic telephone line, you might not be able to pay for the charge, if you worked the rest of your life. Always call the one call number, and have lines located before you do anything. That way you are clear if you hit one. I worked for a power company for 35 years, and know what it has cost some people when they do hit a wire. CAJ

Thanks for the info. I do understand about the locates and what it would do if you were liable. I think it has put a few guys out of business. Any other info will only help. thanks.
