What is the best way to start your lawn mower business?
Thanks in advance
To research on this website. hammerhead:
Use the search tool. There is tons of info on here. All you got to do is read.
Spoken by a true A simple keep the research up all you will need to know is in here somewhere could have been a little more encouraging
Pick a business name.
Register with the State as an LLC, Sole Proprietor, etc.
Get an EIN/tax number
Buy liability insurance.
Buy office supplies.
Give prices to potential customers.
Overly simple, yes.
I'll go even simpler than that.
1. Get a mower.
2. Mow some yards to see if you really want to do it.
3. Get a better mower and mow some more.
4. Then see above and go legit.
5. If you don't like it, stop at #2.
I guess I was being a jerk. Here is a better answer: Research on here about advertising, startup cost, insurance, becoming legal, how to do the job properly, types of equipment to buy, and how to manage business.
You asked a very open question. You need to research more and then ask a question that is less open. It is amazing how much you can learn from reading on this site.
BAscially just start out and see if you like it. If you do pursue it and let the money just flow in! Also advertising is good and word of mouth about your work is even better! Good luck!
Im only new too,so i hope there are more suggestions coming lol
Hows the competition in the Orlando FL surroundings?How much should I charge for a yard or by the hour? thanks
The suggestions above pretty much cover it, you just have to get out there.
Again, try not to spend too much money getting into things until you have experienced maintaining multiple yards then decide whether to persue further.
