Just stopping by. New guy here

I’m just here to stop by and say hey. I am in the process of trying to start my own pressure washing and softwashing business. I have never really done either of those, let alone run a business. I am located in Alabama.

I usually have a lot of questions and you will most likely get tired of seeing post from me.

I am trying my best to keep everything as debt free as possible. However, I do understand the saying “you gotta spend money to make money”. I guess right now I don’t want to acquire any debt until I see that I am getting jobs lined up and I am acquiring customers.

I currently drive a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer as my daily commute. I am planning on using it until I can get enough to buy a used truck. When I do get a used truck I am trying to decide whether to go with a skid unit or a trailer setup. I guess I can see advantages for both.

Anyways, I am just here to say hey and try and learn absolutely as much information as possible.

I was in the same position in 2018, the guys here really helped me get things sorted out.

Word of advice, don’t go buying stuff on your own without consulting us first, this will save you a lot of money and aggravation. Also don’t be afraid to put a good piece of equipment on the credit card, it gets paid off quick.


and don’t go changing everything just because some guy says it works better that way…get a collection of opinions and some relevant experience, and test out what works best for your workflow and job types.

What part of Alabama?

Opelika. Right next to Auburn University.

Right on, I know Opelika well. There was a guy on here awhile back that operated out of Auburn, not sure if he’s still in business but he had a good looking setup.

Put your business plan together and maybe I’ll lease you my rig.

Are you located possibly in Chambers County? I saw an ad on Facebook Market place about someone’s PW business and for some reason your name looks familiar.

I am originally from LaFayette, Alabama

No, I’m in Birmingham but I went to school out that way. I don’t have anything posted; I was halfway kidding until I wrote that, but now it’s definitely got me thinking lol
