So this year we decided to start snow plowing to keep us busy during the winter with our lawn care business. We bought a used truck and a plow for $6500. The plow is a minute mount and the truck is a 1999 ford f350 4×4. It seems like a solid truck although it has been in the shop a lot since we originally purchased it.
Snow plowing aka snow removal should be an interesting venture for us. We were able to easily pick up accounts for our lawn care business by contacting existing customers and doing some online advertising. So far we have 14 accounts and we have plenty of leads still flowing in since it is early.
Starting a lawn mowing business was a challenge in itself but snow plowing will be an even greater challenge. I will keep you posted on how our snow removal venture goes.
