    Hey we are just starting to look into expanding our business and offering a complete rental equipment center. Anyone familiar with this type of business? We see great opportunity and of course lot's of risk. We are in New England so winter can be a tough time so choosing the right product mix would be crtical.

    Any thoughts on were to research this type of business.

    One of my closest friends has a full service rental business and sales. They rent everything from carpet cleaners to dozers, lifts,tractors along with all kinds lawn equipment. They also sell at least 4 brands of lawn zt'rs, Now they carry Hustler, Dixie Chopper, X Mark and another lower end homeowner brand. The recently started selling side x side's, cycles and scooters. Your right it is a lot of work but he does very well.

    Insurance is going to cost you a FORTUNE for a rental business.
