    Digging up an old post, but any chance you’d be interested in sharing your waiver with me? I don’t do enough business to make it cost effective to buy insurance (few jobs a month, mainly to get firewood). I would like the peace of mind though, and have something to ease concerns of potential customers. Until my business gets big enough to require it anyhow.

    Get insurance. No good excuse not to and still pretend to be a business. If you are cutting firewood for personal use and not charging anything...yeah, get a good waiver.

    Not just for personal use. It’s for extra cash in my pocket and only something I do in addition to my day job. I can only hold 10-12 cords (in addition to what I keep for me) at any given point. I also have a mill setup and sell rough cut boards. I tend to mill those at the property I’m working at. Those are easier to store and people pay good money for them, but they don’t move as quickly.

    Then get insurance. You think you can't afford that....then you certainly can't afford to have an accident without!

    Talk to several agents and explain what you are doing. It may be a lot cheaper than you think if you limit the scope of what you are doing.
