    I passed my driving test today ! YESSSSS lol ;)

    I will have a astra estate van with trolley system 25L & several containers. I prefer trolleyu over van mount.

    I am going to meet a window cleaner sometime this week and check his trolley stem out hes got a prue freedom one.

    Am looking for a decent astra im willing to spend up to 3K I can get a 58 plate with 60/70k miles for around 3K with one owner with service history which is decent. I dont like buying cars with several owners and high milage.

    Where would you all start out from if u were in my position ?

    Would you go canvassing now ? would you get your van in first etc ? get your equipment sorted first ?

    I am looking to order my business cards from vistaprint tomorrow. and then look at the equipment and get it ordered before the end of the week ;)

    I am planning on dropping 1,000 cards per day. I can do this.... i know it sounds hard.... but i can do this... in 1 day. i will also have help from my brother who will go shotting cards out with me.

    I will be looking at getting a website made this week aswell. and setting up my facebook page.

    Its a lot to do but surely it will pay off :)

    tell me what you think lads

    register self employed
    pay ni
    get public liability
    get flyers made
    get van + system

    then once you got most of these in place then look for work
    if you look for work atm you wont have time to sort the van out ect

    What welshcleaner said, stupid to look for work without a system. Will look very unprofessional if they say ok to you doing it and you reply with ok when I get my equipment il do it
