Pananderson - Yea, i think im done.1) Sandblasting is too much of a hassle in NYC. 2) I cant get equipment to function right. 3) I have no storage for the equipment in NYC, its kept 1.5 hours away. 4) The only real paying job is in pools, but how often are people blasting their pools, not many in NY. 5) Blasting cars, hardly any request and not really worth it for only a $1000, remember, I also have another established company, so I can only take profitable work. 6) I think the setup is too huge for me.. maybe i would have been better with a smaller setup. 7) I tried to market to fire restoration, no 1 has heard of soda blasting.
After all thats said, id really like to stay in the business, hopefully it could take off, but i dont see that happening in NYC. Maybe if I could get a partner, then maybe... but for now.. Its downhill.
Im trying to weigh my options, as I still have all the equipment, maybe i can branch into other work since i have the air compressor... I dunno..
I wanted to be different, I wanted to be a specialty contractor, I was always fascinated with blasting until it came the day and i purchased equipment. Out of 3 jobs, 2 failed. It suck, but im left with no choice, i have to sell to cash out before my equipment turns antique.
