    Ive run across a local opportunity (150-200 mile round trip) of picking up and delivering 1-2 loads a day. Each load pays around $550-$600. I have tons of experience hauling hay, livestock and farm equipment. I DO NOT have a CDL, never needed one with local Ag. Stuff. This isn’t Ag but will always be under 26K. Should I consider this? I’d need $1,000,000 liability and $50K cargo insurance. What else would I need? I obviously have truck n trailer. Thanks.

    If you are hauling for pay you are a motor carrier. A cdl doesn't matter as much as if you are driving a CMV or not. A CMV is typically all vehicles used in commerce above a 10,000lb gvwr.
    About the only thing you don't need is drug testing the driver (you).
    Unless you are in a state that doesn't follow federal regulations anyway.

    I'm saying you are a motor carrier. You are no different than the same requirements Swift has to operate, save for a few minor changes.

    Gonna depend on what state your in. NY no cdl would be required unless you crossed a state line.
