Lawn Service Equipment: What You Really Need

The idea of starting a lawn maintenance business with just the basic equipment may be acceptable but there must be an immediate plan to improve or upgrade the service tools. An upgrade in lawn service equipment directly implies an improvement in the performance of the machine and an improvement in the quality of service provided.

During the start up phase, you may only need the basics such as the basic hand tools like brooms and rakes, a blower, a line and hedge trimmer, a commercial mower, edgers, chainsaws, trailer, and safety gears like gloves and goggles. However, as your returns increase and your business grows, you also need to add more high-performing equipment like bed edging materials, trailer sprayers, riding mowers, snow removal tools, and pesticides/insecticides and fertilizers.

Renting the mentioned tools may not be a good idea as you cannot guarantee the condition and performance of the machines. Buying these lawn service equipment pieces is the safer alternative although you must guard yourself of buying too much and too often. Upgrading need not be done every month and you do not need to use all of the lawn care maintenance tools at once so there is no need to buy all of them at one time. Review your services and identify the tools you are to use the most. Also check your financial operations and see what your business can afford to obtain.

If there may be a need to rent, consider renting the bigger and more expensive tools. This way, you can test the lawn equipment if it is indeed essential for the service you are to provide. Without shelling out a large amount, you are able to identify which brands and models to invest in.

Other business tools you may want to consider are software equipment that can considerably improve your business productivity and operations. Truck routing and tracking can reduce your fuel costs as it can help you see where your trucks have been and at what time. Keeping track of your clientsÂ’ information is easier when you have contact management system software in use. Programs that support scheduling and routing can save you time and money as you can easily set and manage appointments.

Basically, these are the more essential lawn service equipment your business needs. See how your business can invest in them so you can also enjoy better profit.
