To all the dealers on this site - where can I find a forum that contains advice on how to become a dealer? I’m starting from scratch and will be looking for investors once I finalize my business plan. When I go to the many lawnmower manufacturers websites, I follow the “become a dealer” link on their website but they seem to only be interested in established dealers. I especially got this feeling when I went to Grasshopper website and filled out the “become a dealer” questionnaire. I am trying to break into the industry. Every time I search google for “how to become a lawn care equipment dealer,” or something of that nature, I get brought to this site. Very useful forum by the way and glad I found it. The reason is obviously because so many people here post the topic, “how to startup a lawn care business.” By the way, I intend to start up a lawn care business on the side as well to raise money for my future dealer business. Fingers crossed it all works out. Any information is greatly appreciated.
