    I have an 03 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad. and it was parked at Charles English's yesterday. I am just part time currently, but that may change in very near future. Will be looking at insurance in next couple of days. Right now I have about 6 "irons in the fire".Are you primarily res. or comm.?

    Well if I am noy mistaken there is someone else in the area with custom as part of there bus. name oh well. I'm also just part time but brand new to all this, I should be recieving all my advertisements on mon. or tue. so hopefully things will pick up. For now I will just do the Res. people that I know. But once I get my ins. I will target a few commercial accts. I just picked up my new Exmark Lazer today so next week is when I will definetly pursue customers more. Oh yah the reason I was asking about if you did sod and landscape is becuase if I come across customers wanting to have this done maybe I can refer you, in return if there are jobs you can't to or have turn away you can refer me or something like that. Anyway you picked a good spot to start one up with the way this area is expanding. Good Luck let me know if you have any questions I'll help if I can, like I said this is all new to me.

    I am targeting high end residential accounts. All my equipment is geared toward that.
    Just purchased, last Wed., new Walker 26hp efi, what a great mower.
    I don't do sodding except for current accounts to patch a problem area.
    I am a little disappointed at the results of a mailing I made last week, no response at all yet.??????:confused:
    I will make another this week.

    I think all we need here in North Florida is about 1 full week of sun and less rain to make the phone start ringing.....:D
