Hello all! Im new to the forum so please forgive me if I'm posting an old topic or in the wrong thread. I currently work for a municipal water treatment facility and previously worked in a wastewater facility, and have a license in both WWT and WT. For the last three years or so I've been dreaming of starting a septic pumping and portable restroom business. In my area (central MN) theres two well known companies, and a few one man operations that dont really advertise. Is it possible to start the business as a side gig while building a client base, or is it something that I'd need to dive into full force right away? Ideally I'd like to buy a used pumper truck and start slowly, but after startup fees, licensing, and other variables I'm afraid a few tanks a month would leave me dead in the water. I did recently have a new septic put in my house and the guy who pumped my old tank ran a small company and seemed fairly old. Im not sure if he had a son or something that was going to take it over, or if he'd sell in the coming years, but maybe theres an in to the industry there? Just dreaming... I've researched hours on end, but just want to see if anyone has advise to get this en devour off the ground. Thanks!
