Don't do this...

I don't get into the scrub stuff. I usually don't pay attention to it. But I did see a really funny sight yesterday. Talk about a way to hurt your reputation or keep from ever building one...

A mid 80's full size station wagon with trimmer and gas tank in the back. 3 Murray push mowers strapped to the luggage rack on top of the car.


This is not a thread to start the SCRUB calling stuff. This is to make a business point. Don't start your business off on the wrong foot. Image, quality, reliability, and professionalism all go hand in hand. Yes we all start from somewhere. But some places you allow yourself to start from can make it harder to pull out from. I see lots of new starters and see a new group the next year. Most don't make it. They usually have many variables going against them. Do the best you can, but pay close attention to image. If you have a truck, either the bed or small trailer is fine. If you have a car, don't use the trunk or top of the car. Invest in at least a little trailer. Give yourself a shot at making it. Is failure an option? Only you can decide.
