Have you ever considered starting your own local plumbing equipment business? With so many old homes on the market and new homes being built, these services will continuously be needed now and in the future. You could make really good profits by just selling the equipment because there are many plumbing companies who buy this type of equipment in order to assist their customers in fixing their plumbing problems. Not to mention, there are a lot of consumers buying products on their own to handle their own plumbing problems in an attempt to save money. With the downfall of the economy recently, saving money is a must. Think about how many more customers you would get if your company specialized in selling high quality plumbing equipment, and providing professional plumbers who could assist consumers in fixing the problem. It would be like a one stop shop. Everyone dont have the skills to perform some plumbing services, and some people cant always afford to invest in the necessary equipment. This would work well for your business. Why? Well, if a customer realized the job required a professional to handle their particular problem after realizing they cant afford the equipment, they wouldnt need to leave and go somewhere else to get those services, right? Right! You would be running a combination of a service oriented and product oriented business, meaning more profits.
