Now being retired I would like to rent myself and tlb out for hire on small jobs. Just don't know how much to charge. Any ideas?
It's always a good idea to carry liability insurance. I had a lawn care business many years ago. I've thrown a rock through a window, chopped cable TV and Phone lines up with an aerator - yes - an aerator pulling 3" plugs. Never had to file a claim though. Fixed the window myself and the cable and phone companies were responsible because they laid their cable under the sod instead of burying it right. But all it takes is a bucket loader into the side of a house, or into a fence etc to eat up a lot of profit and then some.I hate to bring it up, but something I'm always leery of working for others is "What IF?" and that "insurance thing"... Your results may vary... I'd want a written release if working for someone I didn't know on a close first name basis.
(This attitude is the result of living in The People's Republic of New York" all these years...)
