I guess I should have included the fact that most of the people requesting removal are either people I know, or someone a personal relative interacts with or works for.

I never really considered a license or insurance because its kind of just been a “whatever” sort of deal.  They just paid me for time, as kind of a good will gesture, not really as a business or a “serious” source of income. 

That brings me to the original question.  Since I have done it for basically family and friends, the word gets around…others have started to ask and I have said “no” up to this point.  I thought about maybe turning it into a side business and that is why I was asking about fee’s. 
I would love at that point to get insurance on myself, and if this state requires it, a license.  But don’t want to waste the time if its $25 for the day kind of thing.  I usually go out for about 3-4 hours.  Any help on what to expect money wise or what is reasonable would be great.
