Starting a parking lot sweeping business

Postby Eddie Meadows » Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:00 pm

I am wanting to start a sweeping business but don't know where to start. Do i try and find business first, and if so how do i do that ? Or do I buy my equipment and then try and find business.

Seems to me you're going to have to have the ability to perform (ie.: "have the equiment") first, and THEN go hang out your shingle. Because the psychology of it is, that if you're soliciting based on future capability (and have no real ability right then, as you speak), you're going to have a real hard time getting those fish to bite. For example: What if a property with a parking lot says "great, I like your bid. Start tomorrow please". Are you really going to be able to scramble that fast? No. Of course not.

So I realize it's a "catch 22", but .......... so be it :(

Last year we replaced the transmission, the deck engine, new blower fan and housing rubber. This truck is old but still sweeps very strong. Also selling 2006 SCHWARZE 333.

Starting a parking lot sweeping business can give you liberty from a job and boss. Parking lot sweeper businesses normally need a large commercial truck, but you can begin the business with only a personal pickup truck.
