How to get started in the car hauling business?

I have been thinking about getting into the car hauling business, but I have a few questions I need help with. First what type of insurance will I need besides covering the truck and trailer? What type of licenses will I need? And how can I start setting up contracts? I live in the southwestern PA area if anyone knows of any dispatchers around here. Thanks in advance and have a great day.

to get started you'll need a truck obviously...and a CDL license...then i'd say contact small car dealerships that may need many cars transported at one time from auto auctions to their retail locations!!! they would be your best type of customer!!!...then their word of mouth...and the people you meet at the auto auction locations will get you a ton more business!!!

What is the average car insurance premium in Mississauga, Canada?
No one has ever figured that out because it would be a useless figure to the individual. If I told you it was $200 per month, what exactly would you do with that figure? Insurance is rated individually, not on an average. Kanetix is a terrible website, especially considering your situation...

You don't have to tell them, they'll find out.That SR22 form is an endorsement on your auto policy - you USUALLY have to have it, if you've been driving WITHOUT insurance, or your license has been suspended. It's not triggered by the DUI, it's triggered by the suspension or lack of insurance...
