They are crap. But if that is all you can afford to get started, then get it and upgrade as you can. You really need to get commercial grade equipment, homeowner stuff will not last.

You guys over looked the question... "What do I need other then the equipment to get the business started?"

Is there anything else I need to do other then get insurance?

I thought he meant like office supplies but I couldn't think of anything last night but I woke up this mourning... He NEEDS a stapler AND staples. I never use mine but if I ever needed staple something, I have it handy.

In Canada you have to register your name, pay for the name search (at the same place) then register for a tax number, we put this on our bills. Things will likely be different where you live, I know that we have a city bylaw or something that we need to register for if you have a window cleaning co., but I never have registered for that BS money grab from the city.
