Getting Started : Ready to Become a CWS Licensee?
Here's what happens next.
1. Review CWS FAQ, Equipment List and Other Introductory Materials
We've tried to answer many of the most important questions licensees have in our information packet. We expect you'll have more questions, and encourage you to contact us if you do. But, reviewing these documents can save you time.
2. Identify Your Geographic Area
New CWS licenses are non-exclusive and for defined geographic areas. Contact us for a current contract that specifies the areas you may operate so you can accurately determine the profit potential as well as your equipment needs and up-front costs.
3. Conduct a Business Analysis
To understand the profit potential for a CWS license in your local market, it's important to evaluate local demand, competition, and environmental enforcement. Determining the level of potential concrete washout business will help you determine how much equipment you will need to serve your local market, and, in turn, the level of financial investment your CWS license will require. You also need to understand all applicable local, state, and federal environmental laws and regulations to ensure that your operation is in full compliance with all such obligations in your area. Before proceeding with a license, it's also helpful to investigate financing options. Many of our licensees have used Snider Leasing to finance their CWS-related equipment purchases – contact us for a referral or Snider directly at www.sniderleasing.com.
