Yeah, my halfton does its job.. it sags but it doesn't hesitate to haul anything.. Been noticing the instrument cluster acting up since about 75000 miles... gas hand and speedo don't work half the time, and that gets annoying -- but on the other hand, you got any advertising advice? I've put up ads on craigslist, have a facebook page, yellowpage listing on their website, and all kinds of online stuff - we have a couple shirts, but I'm getting new ones made next week and selling them to some friends.. I have seen 0 results from what I'm doing... does going door to door actually work??

I seen your add on craigslist. That is your best bet. I have been running add on there for two years and had more calls from it than any thing I have done. Decatur Daily adds cost a ton. I ran one for 3 months and got two calls. Ran the add from Late march till June. Next year I went totally craigslist. Got At least 10 call. Its bad time of the year right now. I have had two calls in the last month. One I got and one I didn't. Decatur is full of lawn care companys. I advertise for Decatur, Trinity, and Lawrence County. Hang in there they will come. If you are dependable and do a good job you will get the accounts. Good Luck. Long's Lawn Service

My insurance runs over 600 dollars a year. That includes 300,000 Thousand for liability and covers my equipment. I have two Zero turns, a push more and several hand helds, and two trailers all covered with this insurance. Decatur licensed runs 85 dollars a year. I work some in the county so I do not buy a license but you may have to have one. I don't know about that. Most residential are not worried if you have insurance. The insurance is to cover you if you accidentally hurt someone or tear up someones property and your equipment if stolen or wrecked. Good luck.
