Hire Staff
This business only requires casual staff to load and off load equipment. Loading and off loading is labor intensive so you need loaders or lifting equipment.
Business Location
The feasibility study should identify ideal locations for your business. The location you choose should have large storage area for party equipment.
This is because the chairs, tables and canopy are bulky. The location should be easily accessible for loading and to gain regular patronage.
Neighborhood party rental owners need to promote the business. The amount of money invested in marketing should be minimized.
You only need to reach out to people in your locality through simple advertisement. Use sign boards, billboards and flyers to attract patronage. Other ways to attract customers are through word of mouth and referrals.
