Anyway trucks look great man, always good to see another young guy in Jersey making it in the business. Do you have 8 guys working year round or just for snow?
yes your right, a "handful" of commercial accounts justifies 2 brand new trucks and a crew for sure...

Me, If I was able to afford those type of truck payments, I would have bought used and bought 3x the amount of equipment.

Guzzo: Do you do a lot of mowing, because I see you only have 2 mowers listed, do you have more that are not listed? Or do you do mainly landscape installs and maintenance? Also what other type of equipment do you have that isn't listed?

Do you guys realize that some commercial accounts can be well over $100k a year.

I never said it justifies 2 brand new trucks, but last I checked you DO need a truck to be in this business, and that's really all he has, he said the other truck is his dads. I don't understand why his lettering is on his dads truck though, especially considering if it's his dads truck for business the truck should be registered under his business name, and would need that name on it if it has commercial plates. As for his crew, I'm assuming he either has 8 guys working with him when it snows or he does more landscaping rather then just cutting grass. I could be wrong, but that's just what I'm guessing

Yes the other truck is his dads but hes paying for it on top of his F-250. Thats what we dont understand. Would you want to have over $1,800 in truck payments every month? Thats more than a mortgage.
