What is to stop any of your own guys from breaking away and going at it solo ? How long would it take them to peel about 25-35 % of your current work away from you with a simple undercut ? I'm sure the 10 grand investment is based a bit high , thus they would recoup the initial costs pretty damn quick since they already know your customer base and work practices already .
I had a couple guys try to do things on their own. I helped them as much as I could. I value all business relationships. They gave me projects too big for them to handle, and I gave them the projects below my min pricing. Unfortunately, both guys were not capitalized enough to sustain the hard beginning years. I would never knock anyone for trying to do their own thing. Buying the equipment, any person can do. As a side note, both guys sold me their equipment. Welcome to business.
People don't hire my company for price. If they did, I never would have gotten them as customers anyway. Does that make sense?

I tried opening the link but didn't work for me. Don't think us Canadians are allowed to access the mag! In the past I've emailed them asking to buy a subscription and I didn't even get a response. Oh well!
Not sure what the first article was about but something useful I'd like to know: Does a painter have to use a $10k set up for their power washing needs like you use? What set up would you recommend for painter's if different from yours and why? Very interested to know!
