Want to start a business in gutter cleaning so you can be your own boss, work a flexible schedule and make a tonne of profit but don’t know where to begin? Starting a new business can be a daunting task. However, we’re here to give you some helpful tips to ensure your new business venture has the best chance of succeeding.
Begin Your Initial Planning
If you wish to succeed you need to have a solid plan in place. Some questions to consider include what will your business name be? How much will you charge for your service? What area are you looking to service and how far are you willing to drive for your customers? Once these initial plans are sorted you should consider speaking to a professional who can give you advice regarding legalities. This includes registering your business, any permits that are necessary, and insurance.
Invest In The Right Equipment
Once your business plan is in place its time to look towards getting the equipment for the job. Its important to find quality, durable equipment that can withstand regular use. The EnduroVac is the best vacuum for the job. This system is built from the ground up with reliability at top of mind. It’s versatility allows for tailored packages dependent on your specific business plan. For example, packages can be customised depending on your desired mode of transport, number of jobs you want to do per day (therefore collection capacity requirements), and budget.
Quality equipment obviously comes with a price and start up costs of a business are inevitable. However, it’s important to look at it as more of an investment than a cost because that’s exactly what it is. The average price of a gutter clean can be anywhere between $150-$500 depending on the property. This means you can breakeven within the first few months of your new business venture.
Not to mention, we also offer financing options to make your transition to a new business as stress free as possible.
Get Your Name Out There
It’s important to get your business name out there and build a good reputation around town. In this day and age, word of mouth is an effective and credible method of advertising. Keeping your customers happy with a quality service will assist in recommendations and repeat customers.
Social media is also a great tool for marketing. Create a website, Facebook and Instagram page and keep your customers updated on your business.
