Any services that would make life easier

Are there any services that would make your day to day operations easier. Things like edger blade delivery or chemical delivery more geared toward the small companies rather then the big ones.

There are a lot of things that would make day to day stuff easier..however with the little guys, Money is a major deciding factor on Need vs. want.

I keep spare edger blades in the truck and just buy more of them when I buy my 2cycle oil. It seems I use them up at similar rates.

I would imagine chemical delivery probably requires special DOT permits.

Maybe a blade swap program? Swap dull blades for sharpened ones?

I like the idea of a blade swap program. It would also be more enviormently friendly to recyle the blades somehow.

We save everything metal, when the barrel is full it goes to scrap. Dont get paid much but it's better than throwing it away. As far as easier, buying in bulk helps tremendously. Oil, blades etc.
