New Business Minimum Requirements

Recommended Posts

I would have said a chipper is a must unless you are planning on finding a lane to dump stuff in. Can’t do many conifers without a chipper and I’d say it’s a good % of the work over here unfortunately. If I we you I’d take bens advice and freelance climb, if your good and in the right area you can get £150+ a day and not have to stress about running a business. As much as I love running my own gig it’s not as glamorous as it seems. I was in the yard this morning at 4:30 taking my chipper apart to get it working again for the jobs today.
If you freelance you can always do your own small jobs on the side for friends and locals in the pub but I would say get PL and EL insurance but without uk tickets I would say it may be looking fairly expensive.
If I’ve learnt anything over the past few years running my own thing its you need tickets on top of tickets and then more tickets and if your lucky you might get that job you have just got your new ticket for.
Good luck
