"Thats a Loaded Question"...........best to have as many signed contracts, [ percentage of renewal accounts],last years totals / and expenses, a monthly profitability report, and separate your equipment[ most guys already have or already have a preferance, unless you're ta;lking new stuff[ low miles / hours].....lots of varibles, and lots of different opinions?
Got equipment list
