When starting a pressure washing business, the two most important pieces of equipment are a vehicle and a pressure washer. You will need a vehicle that can carry your equipment safely and successfully – we suggest a truck or van, but trailers will also do the trick.
When searching for the right pressure washer, you want a powerful and highly dependable power washer that will last. Many times start-up businesses try to cut corners to try to save money by buying an inexpensive pressure washer at a box store. You need to ask yourself a few important questions:
1) If this pressure washer breaks in the middle of a job what am I going to do?
2) Who is going to service it?
3) Where do I get parts?
4) Should I buy one that is designed to last longer in the first place?
