New Business

I am looking to start a lawn care business. I have been doing some research but i am still not sure where to start. I have some of the smaller equipment but am needing a mower. I dont really have the credit to take out a loan. Is there any place that will loan money to a new business right away? any advice is will help. thanks

I would not borrow money to start. This biz is so cut throat and mother nature has not been nice ( RAIN ) the lack of it. Not to mention Gas at $4+ a gallon. You need to just buy something small put it in the back of your truck No trailer. I am selling one of my trailers and 2 walkbehinds to mow out of my truck next year. I am also going to go from 30 + yards to 10 in my neighborhood the savings in gas and commercial ins on my truck I will make more money in less time. I am not trying to discourage you just be careful dont buy what some will say( SALESMAN at local mower shop ) about how much you can make and the payments being affordable.

you can get some good financing through most dealers but your stating kind of late on the other hand you can finance a mower now and be a little ahead come spring also when i bought my first mower i waited until winter and bought a used walk behind that was traded in and still got to finance it and got a good payment plan i wouldn't even think about buying anything until i had the work to pay for it
