    I did have another question. Doe we all need to register with the UCR of driving interstate?
    Just to confirm we need to have:
    BOC3
    Registered with Clearinghouse
    Consortium
    Insurance
    UCR?
    Any other things? I feel I’m missing something.

    Do you have a CDL? How heavy will you be running? Anything under 26,000 GVR has less requirements.

    If you are running over 26,000 you will need all of that.
    You will need to register for the drug clearing house
    Drug consortium, you will have to get yourself a pre-employment drug test through whoever you hire.
    UCR
    BOC3
    Insurance
    IFTA reporting
    You will need an ELD

    What’s a good ELD that you’d recommend? Also noticed that the UCR stops taking registration for this year in a few weeks and starts for 2022 October 1st. Should I make sure I register before the 1st to be able to start this year? Any recommendations on a good consortium? Also any other tips are greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the info as well!

    Depends where you’re located I guess. Price of lumber is still sky high here. A sheet of 3/8” plywood is still $97/ea so no ones wanting to build. And I live in a very rural small town area so most people are selling their land. There’s posibilites that i May start it back up and run both businesses. I know I can get all my guys back and bid on some projects if needed.

    I'm not sure why most response didn't post, but I'll post it again. This is the ELD that I use. So far so good. You will also need a packet of paper logs to keep in the cab just in case the ELD goes down. If you are pulled in for inspection at a weighstation, or roadside and aren't able to produce them when requested by the officer you could be fined.
