Complete Ground Pros Equipment and Work

Hi,
I'm in the process of starting my business. I'm going to be purchasing equipment here and there throughout the next few months. Also working on my business plan, LLC, and Logo. Pretty exciting time of my life for me. This is something I've wanted to do for a while, so I'm eager to get started.

This is the first piece of the puzzle. Bought it 2 weeks ago. 2007 chevy 3500 reg cab 4x4. It was a Florida truck, flew down and drove it home. Truck is in nice condition. I'll keep posting pictures of whatever I buy. Thanks!

Thanks, I appreciate it. I am pretty happy with it so far, it will definately be a great work truck.

Where are you at in Cleveland? I could use about 30-40 well paying accounts, if you happen to have those laying around.

I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for yet. I'm going to spend most of the winter marketing and advertising. Webpage, Logo, Truck lettered, ads, cold calling, all that fun stuff. I figured I will spend most of my money on that. If it runs out, I can always finance equipment, but no point on buying all this equipment and not having any customers.

How's business been treating you? And are you still 16?

I'm actually in Brecksville, ohio not too far from you. As for the accounts, I don't have any to give up. Business is alright, lots of companies around here though. Yes, I'm still 16. - Mike

Yea, Brecksville is right down the road. I had a lot of friends that went to school there. It's a nice city.

I may be interested in your 12 foot trailer, if you are looking to sell it. Is it single or tandem axel?

I was wanting to upgrade to a 16 foot this winter so we might be able to work out a deal. It's a single axel.

I know this doesn't have much to do with landscaping, but I picked this up a week ago. 8'2 power-vxt. I'm so excited to use it. Trying to pick up a few residentials in the area. I have about a 3-4 hour route right now.

Also, just finished up my business plan. In the process of getting all my paper work together to officially be in business by 2013. Going to be adding a web page, truck lettering, and some other marketing. I also have a bunch of property managers to contact, most of them know me from my current job so it's a good start. When do you guys usually start bidding on work for Commercial work?
