College landscaping Business
 
http://www.college-landscaping-business.com/Thanks to this site, I can live off my earnings. I was in college wondering what to do, and stumbled upon this. I live in Montgomery County, MD and have over 40 residental clients. I would love feedback on my website tho...
Good luck to everyone out there and keep on mowin!

Nice lowball prices. I figured you'd have more accounts with those prices and that area. How are you making any money???????

I live near you and have seen your ad's. Stop driving profits down for others. Stop lowballing.

Im glad others on this site feel the same way Im sick of all of these new guys who are clueless, ask for advice and then bitch about it

Rental Prices per day
Shovel - 10.00
Tractor - 30.00
Tractor spreader - 30.00
Hand Compactor - 10.00
Rake - 10.00
Leaf blower - 20.00
Hand tiller - 20.00
Electric Chainsaw - 20.00
Electric trimmer - 20.00
Gas pruner - 30.00
Sledge hammer - 10.00

I don't get it, why rent a rake for $10 when you can buy one for $8??
Buying a tractor costs $800+ and rent is $30 and you rent a $50 chainsaw for $20
what if someone rents a tool and gets hurt or totals it?
one spot you write
"Pond Service - we can start from scratch - $350.00 + materials"
Then
"Ponds are very unique and wonderful and we wish to share that with you, with the starting price of only $150.00 plus materials!"
witch one is it $350 or $150?
You should think things throw

Welcome to our forum!

Your site looks nice. I haven't seen other sites that rent hand tools like that. What got you interested in doing that?

What kind of lessons did you learn from the site and apply that have helped you?

College landscaping biz 01-25-2013 11:14 AM

Thanks for the imput, i have changed a lot about my website including taking off the prices!

I rented out tools because people in my area are cheap, but you would be amazed what they pay for rented equipment, I always have a extra tool, just in case mine breaks, so while i am out there making money on my actual job, my side job is renting out the tools.

Steve 01-25-2013 12:54 PM

When you rent the equipment, does the customer come to you to pick it up and drop it off or do you drop it off?
