do you think there is a market for a mobile parts truck,where you have a breakdown and need a part,but do not have time to spend driving to parts store,waiting in line,when youcan call this mobile co. to come to you and either fix it for you or just drop off the part?

In highly populated area's I think this would work in a fantasic way. But only if you had an exisiting storefront also. We have parts delivery from delars around here, but not for emergency on the job, or maybe they would if we called them.

I don't know if that would work or not. Most of the time only small things on my equipment break that I have the parts and the tools right there to fix them. If something big were to break such as a mower engine blow up or something, if we don't have a back up mower there on the trailer, I will meet the crew at where they are working and bring them another one. I don't think people would pay the money. JMO

I would definitely pay for that service. If a mowing crew had a breakdown and I was out on another job and could not get away from it to bring them parts or to go fix the machine a mobile parts truck/mechanic would be great to fall back on. If that meant the difference between a machine being down for the day then I'd definitely use the service. Good luck...
