Marines are some of the best-trained military personnel in the world. Those who leave active duty – due to retirement or any other reason – are skilled enough to try out any career of their choice. The high level of discipline the Marines have contributes to making them ideal for entrepreneurship too. In this regard, they ought to consider investing in skip hire business. Investing in this business requires knowing everything about it, including skip hire sizes.

So, what makes them ideal for this type of business?

Ideal Business for Disciplined Entrepreneurs

As previously stated, marines are a highly disciplined lot. They go through rigorous training with one specific objective in mind – to enable them to fight. In fact, you will not find another arm of the famed U.S Armed Forces that trains its personnel for this goal. Those who become marines have no illusion about what they are getting into, which is preparation for battle. You will be sent to fight the country’s wars wherever that might be.

Secondly, Marines are better at responding quickly to emergencies and call to arms. They only need a short notice to organize a small army and send to any spot in the world where their services – combative expertise – is needed. Being accustomed to quick response, you can expect them to respond to your skip rental needs as quickly as possible.

Massive Opportunities Available

Clients hire millions of skips each year. There is a lot of business right there. There is enough numbers to make an ex-Marine interested in opening up this business. Ex-Marines excel at many things. They spend time internalizing all possible situations. They know their craft well. Everything about their training makes them ready to put their entrepreneurship skills to good use.
Apart from adding to their knowledge of skip sizes, they have to know their customers well. They have to know the types and sizes of skips their customers want. They have to invest in different types and sizes of bins. The ex-Marines have the option of leasing or buying and owning skips outright. Whatever option they go with, the most important thing is to present different options to clients.

Wide-Ranging Options

Some of the most common types of bins they can offer include:
a) Marrel skip bins
b) Hooklift skip bins
c) Mobile skip bins
d) Skip bags

There is no point in offering skips for hire if you will charge exorbitant rates that your target clients cannot afford. Reasonable pricing is crucial to the success of your business. Find out what the competition charges. Do not go too low or extremely high than your competition. More than pricing, your focus should be on offering quality products and services. Once again, the high levels of discipline will work to the ex-Marine’s favor.

New Construction Announced for New York Marine Corp Installation


A quick announcement for those interested in the Marine Corps installation in Garden City, NY.  There has been announced a series of construction projects aimed at improving the appearance of the installation, as well as fix some long standing issues.  We will hopefully see a fresh look and some new and improved features get implemented by some expert construction companies and contractors throughout the next few months.

Similar projects have already taken place to repair roofs and other infrastructure at Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island and Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, and we are happy to see budget get allocated to fix some of our marine barracks and installations as well.  The tides of bureacracy move slowly, but surely, so we thank everyone involved for their efforts in getting this accomplished.

What is Going to Be Improved?

There are many areas of focus, most of which will not be visible to the general public.  Infrastructure updates that include things like duct work, plumbing, heat and ventilation, roofing and other items that will help insure a functioning and comfortable area for residents, staff and the general public.  Additionally there will be some aesthetic updates involving new paint, updated woodwork, and other elements that will prsent a more polished look to visitors.

When Will It Be Done?

The work will begin the first quarter of 2018 and progress for a period of 3 months, finishing by spring of 2018.  If all goes to plan the work will be completed on time and within budget.  Of course, this is subject to unforeseen delays, as can be expected with any construction or contractor project.

Will You Be Affected?

The work should not affect the normal course of business on the installation or the surrounding areas.  Please contact the installation staff if you have any other questions or more specific inquiries regarding this ongoing work.
