I used to do that in order to save on fuel. Sadly I do not own a Piece of junk anymore. So if I were to pull up with my TOY(cadillac), how is that going to look?

Spending a little money(on fuel)here & there driving the work truck with my name on it, has sent sales through the roof! Not every LCC has the luxury we have, and that is having a selective service area.

Clearly every market is different and some have to drive for miles before getting to a property, but the decision to not drive more than 10 miles has paid off tremendously.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hey! I know a guy who rides a bike. It's a sight! He wears the blower, straps a weedwacker to the bike, and pushes the mower with with one while holding onto to the handlebars with the other. Did you ever think that the guys with the new trucks and trailers could be saving on business insurance? All of my trucks and trailers are used, but I have the peace of mind in knowing that they are maintained, registered, and insured. Hold your head high! All good things come to those who wait.
