I am new to the forum and Lawnsite itself and just wanted to say Hello.
Hi, are you new to the business?
Ya i am.
Hello and Welcome
WELL Travis, dont be shy, tell us how your doing, what has and has NOT worked for you.
were all brothers here, so open up, there brother.
16 ft trailer is a good start. I am looking for my second upgrade this year.....
Ya its a nice 16'ft trailer with i believe 2' 6" sides.
Im doing alright, not busy by any means but just working slowly at it. Its just a job on every tuesday to make a couple more bucks then i was, also i landed a few yard clean up jobs already. I also have got people asking me if i will do fall clean ups and of course i said yes.
I think it will pick up next year and the year after. Im basically just doing it to earn some extra cash and i personally enjoy the finish product and the result of the clients faces.
Oh and going door to door handing out flyers hasnt worked for me, i have got most of my clients through craigslist and word of mouth.
