I’ve been reading the forum for a while and decided it was time to say hello. I and my son-in-law are starting up a WC business primarily focused on WFP accounts. He has 10 years experience in the business, but never as an owner. I’ve got 15 years experience as owning operating 2 other unrelated businesses.
We’d like to use this post to catalog our progression as we gear up and hoped you fine men and women would weigh in on what you think are good moves and bad moves.
Since WFP is the basis, we started by purchasing a Gardiner x3 Extreme 47 WFP. [Pole]
Safety is a priority, so the next iitem that we purchased was the Little Giant ladder with the SumoStance base and levelers. To minimize back strain, we’ve ordered a Gentili Harrier g2000 rear-tilting ladder rack to go on the lightly used Ford Transit that we picked up. Transit Van
We just recently ordered a RO/DI Grippamax heated water system from Oliver in the UK which we hope to have built and en route within the next couple of weeks. To get us by during the interim, we’ve been using a 3/4 DI pressure vessel to provide the pure water. We were sold (from an unrelated vendor) 300’ of 5mm hose. I’m guessing we should have went with a larger diameter as a feed line because it takes an inordinate amount of pressure to push water through the full length of line. I’d welcome suggestions on what you’ve found works best with lengths and diameters of supply and pole lines.
During the next three weeks, we hope to have the van interior sprayed with line-x and have plans to get either a full or partial wrap. I’d welcome your suggestions in regard to vehicle advertisement, what’s the consensus on full or partial wraps?
We’ll add more pictures as items are checked off, but would really welcome your input on tips that you’d care to offer.
oops! I just realized that I can’t upload those pictures just yet. What the time those?
