Tom: So Col, before we get into the truck mount side of things, how much money do you need to get started with the portable package? With everything you need?
Col: Okay, with everything you need you could probably spend $10,000. But you could actually buy a startup package; Tam’s got them for about $6,000.
Tom: Right, okay. So $6,000 is all you need to get started. Obviously excluding any marketing or business costs?
Col: Mm-hmm (affirmative), yeah.
Tom: That can get you $150,000 working two jobs a day?
Col: Exactly right. You can do it with that equipment.
Tom: With a $6,000 entry?
Tom: I don’t know many businesses that can do that. Obviously you’ve got to learn about the skills, you’ve got to learn how to clean it. Do you recommend you actually get training in-
Col: Yeah, training is essential. We’ve got some videos being done, and you’ll see those on the website. That’s a good place to start, but ideally you do need some good hands-on training as well.
Tom: Is it difficult to do? Like is it hard to learn the skills?
Col: Not really. Put the detergent on, get it back off again.
Tom: Okay. That sounds a lot simpler.
Col: Along with the dirt.
Tom: Yeah, exactly right.
You also mentioned truck mounts, earlier? There’s a choice between portable machines and truck mount machines, is that right?
Col: Yeah, yeah. Portable machine of course plugs into the power system, and a truck mount of course is driven by either petrol or diesel engine.
Tom: Right, what are the pros and cons between the two of those?
Col: Okay, a truck mount has got a lot more power and can make the job a lot shorter. If you’re way too busy for your portable machine, then it may be time to think about upgrading to a truck mount.
Tom: You’re saying a truck mount you can get the job done quicker than a portable?
Tom: How much quicker, roughly?
Col: Probably about two-thirds of the time?
Col: Yeah, so a three hour job with a portable machine would take you only about two hours with a truck mount.
Tom: Okay, so you’ve got a bit of saving, you can get through more jobs quicker?
Tom: But it sounds a bit more expensive than a portable machine?
Col: Yes. And your costs go up accordingly.
Col: Obviously the repayment costs of the machine, yep?
Tom: Yes, and of course you’ve got to pay for fuel.
