Re-opening the shop

My dad has a fabrication shop in Toronto. It was shut down for about one year after he fell ill. He couldn't restart the workshop since his condition was weak. The doctor told him to quit the welding works and rest at home. Last month my dad suggested reopening the shop. I think it's a good idea for me since I am a welder. I have worked in various trade industries and experienced in welding for two years. I am a certified welder as well. Last year, I worked in a custom fabrication shop. I think it's a better opportunity by restarting my father's business. I am planning to restart the shop next month. I am very hopeful. I am in the process of renovating the fab shop. I rented a bin from a junk removal for disposing of the trash after renovation. Some machines were damaged and all I have is Miller dynasty 200 tig, Thermal arc 130 tig, Lincoln 255 mig, Millermatic 130, HT 30 plasma cutter and a drilling machine. What are some good tools I should look into getting? What all things to be considered while restarting the business?

So why do you need to post a link to a junk removal service when you're looking for advice on tools?
I call spammer!
I hope I'm wrong.

Pretty sure you are right. I have removed the link from their post. Been several bots with similar user name styles recently. If this is legit lets see if Richard comes back. At least this seems relevant to the forum...

@Brian1
Most seem to be based in Ontario, Canada. Can you see if they have the same ip address and block it?

Their IPs were from Ontario but didn't show up in any known forum spammer databases that I saw. I did ban the other 2, This IP is not completely the same as the other one and I'm not sure how to block it - that's above my pay grade on here, haha!
