  1. FS: 5x8 open trailer...

    In addition to my pressure washer, I'm also selling my 5x8 trailer. It's nothing great, 2,000 lb limit on the axles...but it'd be great for landscaping, etc. I'm open to any bids, I'd like to get rid of this quickly...meaning I'll take any serious offer. It was $700 or so brand new and is still pretty much new.
  2. OK it's back up...slight problem with ebay. They deleted my listing because I said "also accept cash" lol Honda 3800 PSI 4.0 GPM Pressure Washer / Power Washer - (eBay item 140174091049 end time Nov-06-07 14:11:22 PST)
  3. OK guys, it's back up: Honda 3800 PSI 4.0 GPM Pressure Washer / Power Washer - (eBay item 140174091049 end time Nov-06-07 14:11:22 PST) Apparently EBAY deleted it after it took me like 2 hours to type it all up and make it look 'professional' -- because I said "cash also accepted" -- But anyway, yeah cash is accepted. Have a look. It was $1000 new, starting bid is $99, no reserve. I also put a buy it now for like $699 I believe. Anyway, any questions, hit me up. Dave
  4. Need help with quickbooks...

    Oh wow Ron, that's some good info. I haven't tried that feature yet, but I'm sure it will be useful in the future.
  5. Anyone really business savvy?

    hrmm good call Ron...so DP Pro Wash can actually run a DBA ... I'm going to have to look into that. Thanks.
  6. Anyone really business savvy?

    Oh and by the way, I don't want anyone to think DP Pro Wash was a failure or that my planning or implementation failed in any way. I originally wanted to get going, see what's out there, offer as many different services as possible, keep my attention to detail higher than the competition, with the best customer service possible, which I have done without a doubt. Then I wanted to re-group and specialize in a specific area or field...and the time has come, well for next spring anyway, and it just so happens to require a name change if I want to be on top of the game.
  7. I may need to talk to my accountant...not sure... Anyway, I'm not digging my business name anymore, DP Pro Wash. I'd like to start a new company, but I've purchased thousands of dollars of misc. equipment...not sure how that works. Can DP Pro Wash sell that to my new company for the exact amount it would take to "break even" on the books and have 0 income, and 0 loss? Obviously this sucks for me as I have business cards, T-shirts, vinyl signs, advertisements, and a bunch of other stuff going already like a domain name, etc. My phone number will be the same, so my customers will be able to get ahold of me still. Technically DP Pro Wash has only existed for about 7 months now so it's not like I'd be losing a whole lot of "built up credit" or anything, right? -- I plan on going into the asphalt and concrete industry...and using a "bigger sounding" name ... I just worry about people wondering why the hell they're getting asphalt done or concrete poured by "DP Pro Wash" -- kind of just seems like you wouldn't want "Joe's Heating and Cooling" to come and paint your house or something... And no offense but people around here just don't take pressure washing seriously. 90% of my gross income has been through other work that I've noticed is in need in my area along the way. That make sense to anyone? Any advice, knowledge, or anything would be appreciated.
  8. Help!! What do you pull your trailer with?

    With a 500 gallon water tank, you're looking at getting a dual axle, enclosed trailer. Something with dual 3500 pound axles, making the GVW of the trailer 7,000...and you'll be pulling every bit of that with 500 gallons. 500 gallons = 4,000 lbs. 50 gallons = 400 lbs. Equipment = 1,000 lbs. Trailer weight itself = ~2,000 lbs. so there you're at 7400 lbs already... You need to be thinking 3/4 ton...Suburban or Excursion if you must get an SUV. I wouldn't even want to tow 7400 lbs with my 5.4L F150 with a longer wheel base to be honest. -- Why do you need 500 gallons? Your best bet would be a nice used 3/4 or 1 ton diesel with under 100k on the odometer to pull that.
  9. For Sale equip & chems

    Tony, would you be willing to work a little if I drive from Pittsburgh to pick that up Thursday Sept. 27th? I know you probably want to get rid of it...let me know. Give me a ring maybe buddy...412-901-2880 Gonna do some research on that bad boy for a little bit...let me know. dp[at]dpprowash.com

  12. Heading to Canada

    So that's where people in Cali go on vacation...Canada. See, I'd be headed to the keys or Cancun or something like that anyway. But yeah, congrats on 15 yrs.
  13. Almost complete

    Nice...very nice.
  14. Wow that's it in the pics and it's 4 years old? That's in really good shape...you take good care of your equip.
  15. Our new baby......

    Nice Don, boxers are great...the best breed I've ever owned...energetic, playful, they tend to know their boundaries, and can test you from time to time because of how smart they are. Extremely good around kids and people, and when needed, will put their life on the line to save you. Anyway, here's my little guy...Ares, 4 years old... Neither of her parents were white, were they? If you have any boxer questions, give me a ring buddy.
