I’m opening a construction company, what equipment do I need to get started?
Many people think that starting a construction company involves a huge financial outlay because, after all, we have to buy all the equipment, excavators, cranes, concrete mixers, etc. and the machines are very expensive. What about in a situation where you do not have a lot of money? It turns out that all is not lost.
Consider what orders we are able to receive in the first month of our activity. It can be predicted that there will be small investments, after all, we need to gain experience. Therefore, at the beginning all you need is a car, a concrete mixer and small construction equipment.
Someone may ask, what about the rest?
Well, nowadays there are many companies or services on the market that offer to rent construction machinery, equipment for a small fee. Which, for a novice entrepreneur, can prove to be a salvation. Over time, if our business starts to thrive and we can take on more and more projects, it may become more cost-effective to purchase it.
Remember, before you give up completely and abandon your dream of your own company, do a little research. You may find that there are many solutions to save money without giving up your dreams.
A good plan is an attitude of success! Sit down and calmly think everything through. It is best to write out, step by step, our activities, make a cost estimate.
It’s a good idea to ask a person who knows this to help us. Do not immediately assume the most optimistic version, but also do not be overly pessimistic. Do some discernment about what is in demand in the market.
