    Im always looking for neighboring companies to work with.

    I did not see any PUCO or USDOT numbers on your website or any markings on your vehicles, nor did your name pull up any results on safersys or PUC websites.

    Could you please provide them so that I can look up your insurance and license ?

    Do you carry workers compensation insurance ? I could not find you in that database either. Perhaps you have a different legal name.

    Default Hello

    We do not go out side of our state and we as owners are not required to have W/C for ourselves. Do not need any PUCO info also. We do have state DOT inspection on all of our buses and carry 2 mil coverage.Hope this helps Michael

    Pyro and I talk often on the phone, work together on different stuff and talk shop a lot too. I know he is just as legal as I am, we do not do USDOT because we are "intrastate" and don't cross state lines. We both go through the state bus inspections and carry the proper insurances needed. Some may look down on us for not being USDOT but honestly, that's not a thing that I even want to mess with, it's not worth the red tape for the few calls that we get to justify it. I doubt that my company will ever go USDOT.

    BTW, what's up with everyone pulling up these old threads?

    What's with the attitude? It is a valid question for a possible affiliate. He needs to know what his limitations are and if he's legal.

    The workers comp. thing could be important. If I contract with a company to do work for me who does not have workers comp. and something happens to the driver, it could come back and bite me.

    That is true, but it depends on your business structure.

    I'm sorry, but any company that is domiciled in the state of Ohio that provides service in the state Ohio( intra-state) must be registered with the PUCO. It does not matter how big the company is, or what you transport. If you accept compensation and provide intra state transportation, then you do fall under the jurisdication of the PUC.

    Also, the reason I asked about USDOT, is because on your website you list Casino trips to Virginia as one of the services you provide , and in fact show prices and package options. That would involve inter-state travel, would it not ?

    Digger, there is no more "red-tape" involved in obtaining your federal operating authority than you already do (or are suppossed to do) in regards to the operation of CDL/p required buses or any legitimate operator for that matter. Applications for employment; referrence check; drug testing (pre/post employment & post-accident); vehicle inspections; chauffeur files maintained. I mean everything that the feds require should already be in place by an operation that is in it for the long-haul.

    Most operators are afraid that it is going to be a lot of work and it is really just because the following word is in it: FEDERAL. But it truely is one of the easiest things to obtain in regards to your operation. And when compared to the cost of the fines and the embarassment of having your operation shut down after being caught running with an out-of-state tag and no MC# on the side of your unit.

    Just my $.02

    Michael has a right to ask these questions due to the fact that Ohio is one of the worst states around for scab operators.
