Sounds like a high price tag if you ask me. Also where would there be room to rent with all that going on? ;)

Sounds aweful cheap. How can you figure out space needed based on crews? what size space (indoor & outdoor) would you get for $600.? also as far as the items offered onsite, it would all depend greatly on quality and price.

Geeze, I looked back and didn't see anywhere that I called you one. I guess since your all solid and all, there's no more need for input. :waving:

I asked a real question and got questions back.

No big deal :rolleyes:

I don't even get the question.
Are you looking to start a place like this for local landscapers? Or are you looking to rent form someone that has a place like this?.

The question is too unclear.

If I could get a warehouse like that for $600 a month, I'd be down there tomorrow morning with one-month's deposit before someone else grabbed it.

Around here something of that size would cost many times that. Plus its another way to separate work from your home life.

So there are going to be 6 people on site; a mechanic, Landscape material supervisor, plants & trees supervisor, irrigation supplies supervisor, selling new & used equipment supervisor and a secretary with storage space, office, and plus all of the overhead the company has with all of these people on staff and the price of the in-stock equipment for $400 a month? Why do I not believe that for a second?

Well the money is made from:

Rent
Products Sold
Services Rendered.

Mechanic and Secretarial service is an outside vendor

Is this something your going to start up or are you going to rent?

I don't think it is realistic to have new equipment on site. When one buys equipment, they search for the best deal and it isn't an everyday occurrence either.

An idea i have been working on.

The new equipment would be very small inventory. I have taked to a local Equipment dealer about opening a location in the Facility.

out of curiousity, is english your 2nd language? i ask this because you've had a couple of posts where you seem to think you are tabling something different that we are reading and then ripping into those that don't lay out the response you want.
