    What insurance do you provide your customers if something goes south, I worry more about peoples property and health than being jealous of someone making a few extra bucks....

    I really don't want to have an argument thread here okay?

    I do all my work above board. Company truck, ins, warranty the whole nine. I make a little more for landing the customer, making the sale, doing the work and the follow up. The boss helps me out. He is not out to hold me back as he is looking to get out anyway. So he does not mind me bringing in new customers in any manner I want as long as it does not interfere with the everyday biz or raise his exposure to liability. It trade he makes more money. I am like a subcontractor for a day. Whatever okay.

    Back to the topic please. (TRUCK STOCK)

    Whether i have insurance or not isn't my point nor was it your response initially when you asked how the boss felt. insurance is very inexpensive though so to have it is the smart thing to do.

    $670 worth of stock sound about right?
    $670.00 is what 2-30lb drums of R-22 cost here in New York!

    The worth of truck stock depends on what you are servicing. As a service tech for a large national restaurant chain I had approx 50k in parts on an F250 ford van. We spent 600k a year with the largest distributor, and probably that much more with smaller ones. This was metro Atlanta. 16 stores.

    You need all the hand tools, pump, torches, parts, etc etc. Pretty large list and if your doing this type work you should already have a pretty good idea of what tools you need and what parts are high failure items.

As long he isnt under a no compete contact what's the big deal? I have a van i do plenty of side work out of. As long as i don't let it affect my reg job there's nothing morally wrong or illegal about it
    Its legal if your licensed. Most moonlighters arent and think an EPA card allows them to legally do installs, or service for that matter.

    I'll ship you a whole pallet of R-22 for $500 a jug!

    Maybe it is because we have a long standing relationship with a refrigerant supplier/reclaimer, but we are still paying less than $300 a jug for virgin R-22...
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
