    Hi Guys
    I am buying some contracts from a LCO who is retiring here in Northern Oakland Co. I have been in the snow end of the business for 4 years now and now will be going into the LCO. I plan to start slow and build the business like I did the snow end. I will be buying a new Exmark rider in the next couple of weeks along with a enclosed trailer. A couple of quick questions for you guys.
    1- How or what do you use to secure the mower in a enclosed trailer?

    2- What rack do you like best to store trimmers and blowers?

    3- How do you secure your gas cans in a trailer?

    I do carry liability ins on both ends of the business and also comercial truck ins. I want to do this the correct way and control my companys growth. Any tips or leads for jobs here in Northern Oakland Co would be great. I post alot over on Plowsite so most of you guys would have seen me post over there. Looking foward to hearing from you guys.

    Regards Mike
