You want to start up a marquee hire business but there’s already a large marquee hire business well established in your area. What should you do?
In actual fact, this is a good thing. I’ll try to explain why:
Imagine you want to start up a marquee company near us in the South East, the problem is you’ve got someone like Charlesworth Marquees who are already established as the leading hire company. Starting any new business can be intimidating, when you’ve got someone like Charlesworth on your doorstep with their repuation it can be even more so.
But in fact it should be seen as a good thing. A lot of large marquee hire businesses don’t want to touch smaller jobs, and by ‘smaller’ they generally mean anything less than £2000!
Now there’s a lot of good business out there for less than £2k and you can make a comfortable living from doing several jobs of that size every weekend.
There’s also the opportunity of growing a partnership with the larger company, you pass them any job too large for you and they pass on any job too small for them.
