Another thing to consider is whether or not your going to be a union shop as well. In my state chances are your not going to get any larger contracts or clients if your not union, as the IBEW yields a lot of influence here.

Back in the 90's I worked for a small cabling company, we only had one client but they were huge, a fortune 200 company. We were union, CWA but it didn't matter, one day their IBEW electrical contractor decided they wanted our work and boom a week later we were out of business. After 3 years of doing excellent work and far, far cheaper then any electrical contractor could we were out the door. So one of the largest companies in the US wouldn't even stand up to the IBEW, it just wasn't worth it too them.

Most businesses aren't going to risk hiring a non union company, especially in a new construction environment. As soon as the electricians see you pulling any cable, and are not union, they will walk off the job along with the carpenters, plumbers, etc. 

Just seems like way too any headaches involved in starting your own cabling business.

Very nice advise Jim. Is really common sense but seems like people don't pay attention to the basics anymore! Admire your type!  🙂
