Hi there chaps, I've been reading the forums for a while now and I would love some advice please?
I'd like to start a grass cutting service and maybe in the future if the business gets bigger window cleaning and hedge trimming.
It's been a pretty challenging period with losing both my parents within 6 months of each other last year both were young and was hard to take, as challenging as that period was and is I've come to the conclusion that I need to do something for myself and ive started that with passing my driving test last year. I bought a nice estate car that can accommodate the lawn mower and a few other things and like I say I'd like to concentrate on grass cutting first and maybe if it picks up I'd get a van.
I know it won't be a gaurenteed wage but I have a full time job where I can go part time and do grass cutting in the afternoons. Even at the start it just tops my wages up I'd be happy but then will add things like two In one service of cutting the grass and window cleaning.
id just love some advice on what mower to get, I have my eye On hayter pro 41 Honda engine roller mower, I'd like to finish the gardens with stripe Finnish.
I'd love to do contract grass cutting with local councils or public spaces grave yards etc is there any tips to get in the door with contracts? I want to do this to be self employed and I want to do everything above board in terms of paying tax and public insurance and waste licenses, there's a guy down the road who cuts grass £5 ago and I know for a fact he hasn't a job which annoys me, but I want to stand out from those types and offer striped professional finish.
sorry for the long post chaps and I thank you in advance for reading. Rich.
