    Generally it involves a few hiden costs the first one to spot is you have put down £2000 deposit for a van lets say its a newish transit at say £9999 you still have £7999 to repay over monthly instalments the equipment in the van is on long term loan and will be compulsory return if contracts are breached so the £480 aweek is not a realistic figure probably a gross figure another hiden cost with many franchises is the account management say £300 amonth then now you still require liability insurance van insurance company phone to take the calls for the work passed on you basically become a subcontractor with constraints on what you wear and what you drive the cut into the £480 will have happened already as your return is approx £18 an hour before your overhead costs are deducted

    The examples aren't necessarily what this franchise will take from you but the things to be considered are the business necessaries that aren't listed its not always as much freedom as it sounds to the buyer but can still be a good source of income
