I purchased my own vehicle yesterday. It took me all day to convince the dealership that they should sell me a vehicle. And they should sell me a vehicle because they would be helping me and my big plan in life.
I explained to the dealer that I was unable to make a down payment. I explained that I was paying a lot by renting a vehicle.
- $385.00 a week to pay for the vehicle, TLC insurance, and maintenance.
- $200 a week for fuel. (at $30 a day)
- $100 a week for the EZ Pass tolls. Yes, the customer pays for tolls in the trip, but I have to pay it up front.
Owning my own vehicle means I have MUCH more control over my budget, and my time. I am paying less then half of what I was paying before. I now have the option to pay for maintenance when it is necessary, and not when the rental company says they will fix it.
CitiCourier Transportation Service is born. I have applied to make an Uber account to drive and pick up passengers on Long Island. I also signed up for Uber Eats. These two activities should give me an income to supplement the landscaping business for now.
My next step is to purhase a truck
