In this second part of our investigation, we will speak about costs of equipment necessary for completion of cleaning work, to get an overview of the investment money to be used in developing the activity.

Who, at the beginning, can not afford even to buy a used truck, can opt for the lease or rental fee which is well below the cost of buying and selling. And is useful and important to know that the cost of vehicles needed to carry out business activities are deductible from income tax. The limit of deductibility is set variably according to different types of vehicles and the different modes of acquisition. The maximum limit on the deductibility of the cost of the vehicle is 50%, 80% for large vehicles used in agency activities or entertainment. To purchase or lease of the car cleaning business enterprise, the percentage of deductibility can cover a cost of more than 18 thousand euros, while those hired, the percentage will apply to an amount of about 3,600 euros. Even for those who decide to purchase a new vehicle, the costs that can not be very high.

Everything depends on the model and the power of the product. But even in this case, as for the truck, we noticed that companies offering discounts and special offers. For those who want to develop a company, we would say that this is the right time to invest. A cart for washing floors costs from a minimum of 107 euros to a maximum of 232 euros. A cleaner for floors 10 liters, costs around 47 euros. Bigger spending on high-pressure cleaner. They range from a minimum of euro 900 to a maximum of 4 thousand euro.
