(Note: I think it’s important to know the terminology and words used when learning any new business including mobile home investing. I came up with ‘Terminology Tuesday’ as a way to go over the terminology used in the mobile home business. It’s important to know the terminology when talking to people in the business so you’re all on the same page).

**** Tricks of the Trade is a new series I have started that will be included with “Terminology Tuesday” posts. The goal of this series is to share with you the “tricks of the trade” I have learned in the mobile home business.

One of the tools that have come in the most handy has been the trash pick-up tool.

Now, I first came across this tool from one of my favorite park managers. Being in the business, the park manager suggested I purchase and keep this tool handy due to the amount of trash that has to be picked up when acquiring, fixing up and putting homes on the market. According to the park manager, it’s an ongoing issue – picking up trash. So, I decided to go ahead and get one. I’m glad I did!

Here’s some pics of mine:

Here’s my trash pick-up tool in action on a recent project:

Using the trash pick-up tool

As you can see, the trash pick-up tool comes in very handy. When I’m out in the field, I always make sure I bring it with me. Before purchasing this tool, I was constantly picking up trash around homes I bought and put on the market. Well, not anymore!

Plus, the trash pick-up tool comes in handy when you need an extra “hand.” I’ve had numerous occasions where an object fell in a hard-to-reach place such as the back of a refrigerator and/or washer and dryer where I had to retrieve it. I even had an instance where my phone (yes, my phone with all of my contacts!) fell into a gutter system drain. I got down and reached with all of my might but could not obtain my phone with my bare hand alone. Though, the trash pick-up tool was able to do the job!

I hope this “Terminology Tuesday” post has been helpful and has given you some useful information – it definitely has for me.
