Hey everyone,

I'm been kickin the idea around for some time now, about christmas lighting for extra work in the off season. Has anyone tried this before? If so how do you go about charging? DO you buy the lights and rent them to the customer? Do you have them get them? Where can you get industrial xmas lighting?Any help would be much apppricated.

Thank you,


T.Matthews

I would check this site and the net for information on this. Christmas Decor (www.christmasdecor.net), Brite Ideas Decorating (www.briteideas.com) are two good places to start.

I know that people that offer this service usually start preparing for it in late summer - notifying clients, the public, etc...

The insurance is an issue as well - unless you do this yourself and use it for supplemental cash during the offseason. Just a few thoughts. Hope this helps.
