I am on top of this. I am waiting on some information now from the guy that I bought the Pressure Washer Unit from. He subcontracts alot of work, and he had insurance requirements that I will have to maintain to work for his company. I have already given my Ins Agent a heads up tha this is comming, and he said that I was already covered as far as the liability is concerned for PW services.

i only PW about 3 months out of the year, when grass slows down. but i charge 75 per driveway, and as someone else said i also charge min. 200 per house. One major thing is choose your neighborhoods carefully, if the neighborhood is real old the driveways will take alot longer but the responce will be slightly higher (for me i like the neighboor hoods to be about 10 yrs old) if you go into the newer places the responce is often real low. too watch out for the length of the driveways, an average driveway for me is around 15'x60'. one other thing that kinda gives me a leg up on the other guys doing this around here is i offer a set price on driveways instead of price per sq. ft, because most home owners don't know the sq. ft of their drive and most usually won't take time to figure it out or call. too the way my flyer works it takes out all the guess work for the home owner ( as far as : how much, when we will do it, and billing info), my flyer aslo cuts out alot of down time and gas expence because i don't have to drive out and meet the home owner, give 'em a price,and set up a date to do the work, then drive back out to do the work.

wow looks like you gotta nice set up, but for those who do PWing like me who only do it in the winter when grass slows up you don't really need a trailer mounted set up or the comm. contracts, when i first started i tried to get comm. contracts but it was just like lawn service's comm. contracts where you have to under cut so much to get work that you can't make the money that you should be making, so for me the easier to do driveways, get the work, and make the money i want and feel i deserve. but to each his own if you are happy with the money you make doing comm. work and can get the work have at it. You won't have to worry about me gettin in on your action

Give me a call if you want to increase your speed on cleaning Vinyl siding. (Most houses I do in 75 minutes) Also, if you'd like to know how to do it with less than 100 psi. For driveways/sidewalks speed is determined by flow and not psi.
