Someone's on there selling there spray rendering services on eBay. Does this actually work? I mean has anyone here sold there services as a spread on eBay? Seems far fetched to me, eBay is for general public, just can't see contractors looking there for a gang. Maybe Im wrong.

i sold a pair of underpants on there once

it wont be where contractors look - as if contractors need to look, there are millions of applicators. it will be for joe public i guess

are you in a panic coz it not traditional, as I said before Im not in this game not looking for contractors on ebay (maybe ill try sell pants to contractor if ill get good price)

if a wanna be in a game I can easy start as labor better understand bits and peaces (it is not about how to mix skim, do cleaning, etc) and get own lads ( working for 80£ for a day can do that if i in a sh...t) then have a company LOL . .its too much fights between local lads,
....I can offer to some one who wants rent a machine and a man because I can.. and now how to use it...for me will be some extra thru books of course and if there will be i signs of how to save energy not only insulating lofts... when maybe i wana be in a game

There is a thread on here discussing this but i couldnt find it ( nisus is good at finding things) I think its a great idea if there was a certain job requiring a machine and i could call on someone to come spray, then **** off for a rate, i would be interested. There is definetly a market for it especially when some people have got machines rotting away in their sheds which they dont use, coz they dont have the work for it.

imagine if there were spreads offering just this stand alone service. they would build up feedback for the service which you can review, see prices so the clients or subbie could effectivley price a job by that and if they win the job they can then contact the ebay pump spread without even hassling them for a price. so its like buying plastering off the shelf.

2 plasterers spraying/leveling laborer at machine: I would say can make profit as for internal rendering can use each day but external colored finish: 3 maybe 4 days
machine is useless for skim LOL
if you rent it "machine and a man" u can use machine only then you need it. Same as a car rent it when you need :)
