The best investment we ever made was buying a leaf vac with a 14' dump trailer that we put a box on for leaves and take off to haul mulch in the spring. We can easily triple the leaf jobs prior to the equipment. We were fortunate and saw the system sitting idle in a storage unit parking lot and inquired and bought the entire system for $1,500. I price the jobs at $40 per hour per employee. If it's going to take 6 man-hours then I charge them $240, plus a $75 dump fee. I do run coupons that offer $25-50 off in the local Val-Pak. I like the idea of running over the leaves to mulch them up before "vaccing" them up. That would mean less trips to the dump!
