I know I am not alone when I say that there are far too many productssold today that have to be assembled by the purchaser, and assemblingthese products is never as easy as advertised.
We’ve all been in thisannoying situation: We fight and struggle to get three or four boxeshome, only to fight and struggle for another few hours to assemble afew bookcases. Herein lies the opportunity’start a product assemblyservice. It can be started for peanuts, less than $500, and marketedthrough retailers who do not currently offer product assembly servicesto their customers; additional revenues can be earned if you alsoprovide delivery services at the same time.
Retailers of products that must be assembled after purchase will beyour big market, but at the same time do not overlook the possibilityof building alliances with home and office movers because moving oftenrequires furniture and equipment to be disassembled for the move andreassembled after the move.
You will need to buy basic tools such as a cordless drill, hand tools,and a socket set, along with moving equipment like blankets, a dolly,and suitable transportation if you will also be offering deliveryservices.
