    Like any business venture your all in or not in. You go in half assed your already dead. Don't do it if you cant or won't risk everything to make it, its not for you.

    I’m going to wait until end of winter begin of spring to start my business! That way I can save up more of a safety net to start the business and have time to get all the paperwork together.

    One thing you should be prepared for is a customer not paying. Have a lawyer ready insure you are set up properly. Llc inc ext.. and enough working capital to operate for a few months. Granted if its part time you won't need as much...

    Still have questions about the roll off business? I have been in waste business for over 10 years now and have operated my rolloff business for almost two years now snd will tell you with hard work and good customer service you can and will succeed. If you have questions just let me know ill answer them to best of my knowledge. Personally, we use hooklift trucks and I love them. Hit me back if you need to.

    What kind of trucks are you using if you dont mind me asking? Would a Ford F550 or F650 be to small for 15 and 20 yard dumpsters? How many dumpsters did you start with and how many do you have now? I was thinking about starting with 6 to 8.
