Prior to researching information for thisbook, I did not even realize that there was such a business as a mobilepaint spraying service. However, there is, and it can be a veryprofitable business to start and manage. The business, in a nutshell,is just as it sounds: providing paint spraying services to clients on amobile basis.
The enterprise can be operated in two fashions. The firstis to use an enclosed trailer or truck to house the equipment, as wellas to use as a mobile paint-spraying booth. The second option is totransport the paint spraying equipment in a smaller truck or trailerand paint items outside utilizing portable walls that, when erected,form a mini paint-spraying booth. Both operating methods are extremelyeffective.
However, the latter is less expensive in terms of start-upinvestment. Mobile paint spraying services can be marketed to bothresidential homeowners and business owners. The following list is justa few items that can be included in your promotional brochures as itemsthat can be spray painted.
- Wood siding
- Garden equipment
- Flag poles
- Metal roofing
- Store fixtures
- Patio furniture
- Steel boats
- Concrete floors
- Outdoor toys
- Parking lot lines
Theincome potential will greatly vary for this type of unique service.However, the companies I contacted that provided mobile paint sprayingservices all quoted rates over the telephone in the range of $35 to $50per hour, plus the additional costs of paint.
