How much did it cost you to start up? I'm just shy of £10k atm.

About £50, borrowed a ladder, printed some fliers at my local library and bought some basic trad tools

It depends what the £10k is going to be used for. If you have financial commitments then you will probably manage with a basic set up as you will need a financial buffer. If you haven't any commitments then I would be looking to get started as £10k will buy you a decent van and set up. Then again it cost me £20k as I was one of the original "all the gear no idea brigade" and bought a nearly new van, 2 man hot water system etc etc.

Probably about £300 when trad about 25 years ago. When I changed over to wfp about a year ago about 2 grand. Got a van with everything apart from poles for £1100, about £800 on poles and £80 for a old power reel ( the add onto the reel one ) . The other things I've added over the year are a extra di vessel, a inline tds meter, a few brushes and the rince bar . Probably more but can't remember atm.

Oh sorry I thought you just meant start up. I’ve invested more money as I built my business which was buying a van, then a bigger one, then wfp system, a pressure washer, gutter vac etc
