It’s what we do and we’ve been doing the same thing online since 2003.

Help folks and be honest about it. So, we designed a package that is very detailed and inclusive that will steer folks in the right direction that are interested in starting their own pilot car business. While we do have to charge for our time the price is very affordable considering what we’re providing you with: inside information on exactly how the industry works and what you will be required to have to get your pilot car company in business and rolling down the road.

First things first when starting a pilot car or truck escort business.

Pretty much every state is going to want you to register your business with a minimum of a DBA or “doing business as”. You may decide you would rather start a corporation (Inc.) or a limited liability company (LLC.) once you get going but a DBA may be the right choice for you depending on the laws in your state. We strongly suggest that you talk to an attorney about what entity is best for you as each persons circumstances are different. There are many factors to consider like taxes, marital status, joint incomes, the amount of money you bring into your household and of course liability. With a DBA you can get your pants sued off of you in the unfortunate event you made a decision that resulted in property damages or worse hurt someone. Have you ever heard some one say: “you can sue my company but please don’t sue me”? Well, if your corporation or LLC is properly set up and you are working for it then it would more than likely be the corporate body bearing the responsibility resulting from your actions. But again – consult a professional attorney in your state. Once you have that figured out you can move on to considering obtaining your flaggers license and dealing with any state insurance and training qualifications that are more than likely going to be required. What we do in our “How to start a pilot car company” kit is explain all of the ins and outs that are necessary to get your idea off of the ground and get you into our industry.
