Working Capital

You should allow $10,000 working capital while you grow your business and to cover cash flow any other costs associated with starting your Jim’s Pool Care mobile territory.


Vehicle Requirements – we are flexible

– Van, Covered Dual Cab, Covered Ute or Trailer

Our preference is a new or modern looking white van (subject to approval by Jim’s Pool Care). If buying new you should allow between $30,000 and $50,000 for a new van such as a Toyota Hiace, Hyundai i-Load or similar and these can be purchased or leased so we recommend you speak to your accountant about this. To keep your capital costs down you can buy a good second hand Van, up to 4 years old, for around $20-$30,000.

*$75,000 Package price is subject to change and is valid as at 1 Oct, 2023. Please confirm with your local Jim’s Pool Care Franchisor.
