One of my friends and competitors got so fed up with problems parking and repairs on his TM and van that he sold it and is coming up with a new business plan. He is planning on buying a fuel efficient transit connect minivan and a high performance portable and will focus primarily on condos. His costs are going down and with the type and amount of condos we have here, I bet his profit margins will go up. He can park anywhere there is a parkade and not worry about height restrictions. My first 2 jobs today are portable for $175 each, my next 2 are TM, don't know what I will charge yet. I turned down another portable job that I couldn't fit in today. With the right set up, a portable only guy can make some decent money. Even better if you have a friend with a TM who will share larger jobs with you.
