How many have thought or have done lawnmowing relief ??? In my paper some one has offered a relief service for other contractors for: # holidays #sick leave etc He has his own machinery and transport, police clearance etc, from what i can gather he gets 80% to keep your business running , i am thinking of doing some thing like this , even to keep some ones business going if they want to sell and have already started work else where, in this case they will lose the lot if they cant sell if a relief person was not avail. In this case you may get 100% of the takings, if you have not got your own equip you could lease theres say and get 70%......any way i am thinking of advertising for this as i am quiet at the moment......good idea or not ???
