Don't waste your money on vacuums, use it for pics then just broom sweep what ever needs it. I have done this for the past 3 yrs and have never had to go back. Even direct through brokers. Now if your working for a Nat or regional buying 3 or 4 vacuums every 2 months is cutting into your profits hardcore..
I can make a house look almost just as good with a broom then with a vacuum..

Good luck!

1st choice: Shop vac
2nd choice: Whatever is left behind in the trash out that works.
3rd choice: Anything without a bag. Dump the canister of all the cat hair, put it back in and vacuum the next 10 SF before its full again

Why buy anything when you can just use what is in the house? If Family Feud did a top 5 answers to "What are the most common things a homeowner leaves behind when they move?" I could probably guess vacuum cleaners would be number one, followed by christmas trees, crutches, ironing boards and direct tv recievers.

I vote garden hoses as number one thing left at properties! Most are found in tall grass with mower!
