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!!!

Cheapest auto insurance. (perferably one I can apply for online)?
First of all, seeing that you have a 2007 automobile, I'm assuming that you're going to be paying for it for some time. Whether you purchased or leased, it's an investment that you need to protect. The "Cheapest" insurance isn't by any means the best thing to look at. Every company is great...
