I work for a plumbing company now doing camera work and locating, and heard there is a lot of money to be made doing the work with your own business. What is the best way to get a camera and locating business started?
Re: Starting a sewer camera and locating business.
Around these parts service guys charge $250-$350 to camera a line. Your clients will be other plumbers without equipment marking up your services to the client. If you can book 4-5 inspections a day, you might do alright. One cat put up fliers at all the supply houses with tear off phone number slips. I grabbed one for my buddy who is building his business but doesn't own a camera yet.
Can YOU afford a Ridgid camera, locator and service vehicle?
