Welcome to the forum and the industry.
I am sure that many here will be willing to offer help and advice if you request is more specific.
For such a general query I would offer just two tips;
1) Read through the past posts, as many others starting in business have asked questions and received advice which will apply equally to yourself.
2) MOVE - it gets realy cold where you live †
Posted by cleaner_carpets (cleaner_carpets), 31 March 2004thanks for your quick reply john yes it does get cold but it is great to live by the sea in the summer. I am starting to read through the past forums and finding them very interesting. Are there any fotrh coming events or shows in the near future . i am buying a truck mount do you think it is the best way to go?
Posted by Fintan_Coll (Fintan_Coll), 31 March 2004In a word if you can afford a Truck mount, yes.

My advice, for what its worth, is to book yourself on to the next NCCA (National Carpet Cleaners Association) two day training course.
Contact the NCCA on Tel: 0116 2719550
Posted by cleaner_carpets (cleaner_carpets), 2 April 2004thanks dereck
i have applied to go on the ncca course in may also i am going on prochem's 2 day carpet cleaning and their 1 day upholstery cleaning and 1 day sales course. Hopefully these will be enough to get me going i would appreciate your thoughts or advice if you know of any other course which you might think would benifit me. As said before i am setting up with a hydramaster boxxer t/m what do you think?
