That's a shame

Post by milspec6 on Sun Oct 14, 2018 10:03 am

The cleaner who purchased my TNT rig never got off the ground and is now selling it on ebay. He had it re-painted and it looks great, but the business partners didn't see eye-to-eye on the services expansion so it is back on the market. Sounds like they never even had the chance to use it. It isn't the best time to sell a truckmount right now, but somebody is going to get one hell of a unit if they have the business to support it.

I'm sitting here watching it snow out of my office window...have about 1/2 inch so far, but it is starting to really come down. I had to winterize my mount yesterday when it was 64 degrees (today is only low 40's) and cancel a cleaning job for today. Some times I think this part of the country just hates carpet cleaners....it sure killed my business.

Just another good example why partnerships usually don't work.

So true, this one was doomed from the start as one was the silent financial partner which normally results in a vocal partner and then bust.

He put it on fleabay for the same amount that they paid...no bidders. I am amazed that nobody is interested in that set-up...it is practically a new install for $16k.

What man before building, first sits down to consider the cost.?
Or.....start a business.
