Traditional expansion of a moving company requires a lot of financial support. This would mean purchasing more trucks, hiring more drivers, acquiring more space for parking the trucks etc. For a small scale moving company expansion with this many expenses may seem like a distant goal. However there are few ways a small scale moving company could increase their revenue with small investments.
1. Do you really need moving trucks with drivers?
First question comes to mind when thinking of a moving company is, how does it work if there are no drivers and trucks? Some people do not hire moving companies simply because they are so expensive. They prefer to do it themselves. Target these customers, if you can offer a lower price without lowering your profits you can have the market share for these middle level clients as well.
Without having to invest on expensive Lorries and having hire drivers, you could purchase cheaper machineries such as a Tandem Dual Axle trailer. This comes with two wheels, comes in the van form and can be easily attached to a car or a minivan. And for customers who prefer self-driven services. Rent a trailer would be better. This way you have traditional trucks and the trailers to support your business.
And since trailers does not need to be maintained carefully like vehicles. If you consider a lorry or a truck there are costs to maintain, such as oil changes, detailing, spare parts replacements etc. However the maintenance cost of a trailer is much lower compared to traditional moving trucks.
2. Rent out spaces
Many large scale moving companies are already offering short term letting of storage. However their charges are much higher due to their costs being higher. But as a small scale company if you can rent out a small space and have shelves or small lockers where clients can store their small scale belongings such as important documents, photos, porcelain etc., this would be a money maker. You can rent it out as a separate service or add it as an extra feature for renting a Tandem Dual Axle trailer.
Since you have not invested a higher amount and your costs much lower than of a larger moving company, you can afford to offer these spaces for a cheaper price, and that would be attractive for people who cannot afford high price storage spaces.
Every company dreams of moving forward and earning higher revenues. However the initial investment amount being higher for traditional methods is a reason why small scale companies hesitate to expand. However for a small scale moving company above two methods can be easily achieved. View this link http://www.victrailers.com.au/trailers/atv/ for more information about atv trailers for sale.
