Just after some advice.
I'm planning on starting up a lawn mowing/outdoor clean up business early-mid next year. I am currently in the process of developing a business plan and have started researching what my start up expenditure will be.
Here's a list of essential items I still need:
-Suitable Work Vehicle... Used Ute + Trailer or Used Light Truck with big tray?
-Better push mower (Got a cheap chinese one at the moment)
-Spare Whipper Snipper (in case of failures)
-Bigger Jerry Cans
What I would like to have but maybe not essential right away:
-Zero-Turn Ride On with 42" Deck (small enough to fit in most backyards)
To buy all these new apart from the vehicle which I will buy used I would be looking at around $20,000
Does this sound ridiculous? or Reasonable?
I could probably spend less on a work vehicle and trailer and buy used equipment but I really don't want to end up having an unreliable car that is a money pit and have equipment breaking down on jobs making me look unprofessional.
What advice could you Lawnies out there offer to someone like me starting out?
