Business Plan Basics for Garbage Removal Businesses

As an aspiring garbage removal business owner, you've invested time and effort in the creation of your initial business plan. Now it's time to address details about your industry.

Industry analyses are standard chapters in garbage removal company business plans and are often required by lenders or investors. Industry analyses are critical for contextualizing your startup within an industry setting.

To succeed, you'll need to be careful to avoid common industry analysis mistakes and to accurately represent your startup in an industry context.

Investigate the Competition

Before you open a garbage removal business within your community, it's a good idea to find out what the competition looks like. We've provided the link below to help you get a list of local competitors in your city. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of garbage removal businesses near you.

How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.

Studying the Market

Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?

However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a garbage removal business in a different city may be more than happy to give you a few tips, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Where can you find an entrepreneur who is running a garbage removal business who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
