Best Van for a Gardening Business - New Franchise Opportunities.
It's the biggest investment your going to make, you need a van that's big enough to carry all your kit, but also small enough so you don't have huge challenges with parking and therefore who and where you work.
Keep in kind that you can start small and gradually build up to a bigger van or just start big and aim to make the most use of it. It all depends on your plans and what services you plan to offer.
We learnt a long time ago that a pure "gardening" business is hard to sustain. Contracted customers paying regularly all year round is difficult to find and keeping staff motivated is really hard.
BUT, we discovered way back in 2008 that 92% of all "gardens" was actually lawn - from a professional point of view lawns need looking after all year round, its more than just lawn mowing. So we build a business around the lawn.
Bespoke Lawn Plans, designed with your customers lawn and budget in mind, customers who pay monthly all year round. Now that's a great business!
The best vans, if you start small look into the Transit Ford Connect make sure its got side doors. Its a great van for vehicle livery and is box square so you can build useful selves in it quite easily. The next step up and its as far as you really need to go is a Ford Transit (hi top - medium wheelbase). The hi top means you have stacks of room for kit and movement, its also useful for carrying supplies and the odd waste bag.
