    I am 16 and am expanding my landscape business. This is what i have:

    2000 Chevy Express Cargo Van
    32" Exmark Metro Commercial Mower
    RedMax EB7001 Backpack Blower
    1 Hand held Blower
    (2) 21" Small Mowers
    Stihl Weed Eater

    I currently have 10 customers with no advertising. My dad is incorporating so we can advertise and be legit. Someone wants to buy our van, but we are unsure if we should keep it for now because everything is nice inside it or if we should get a used pickup and enclosed trailer. The pickup and trailer would only cost $3,000 - $4,000 more. Should we wait to get more customers and then make the switch or make the switch now so we are ready. Please Help!!

    When your business grows the van won't have enough space for your new equipment.
