Prior to researching information for this book, I did not even realize that there was such a business as a mobile paint spraying service. However, there is, and it can be a very profitable business to start and manage. The business, in a nutshell, is just as it sounds: providing paint spraying services to clients on a mobile basis. The enterprise can be operated in two fashions. The first is to use an enclosed trailer or truck to house the equipment, as well as to use as a mobile paint-spraying booth. The second option is to transport the paint spraying equipment in a smaller truck or trailer and paint items outside utilizing portable walls that, when erected, form a mini paint-spraying booth. Both operating methods are extremely effective. However, the latter is less expensive in terms of start-up investment. Mobile paint spraying services can be marketed to both residential homeowners and business owners. The following list is just a few items that can be included in your promotional brochures as items that can be spray painted. Fencing Wood siding Garden equipment Appliances Handrails Flag poles Metal roofing Store fixtures Patio furniture Steel boats Signs Trailers Construction equipment Concrete floors Outdoor toys Parking lot lines The income potential will greatly vary for this type of unique service. However, the companies I contacted that provided mobile paint spraying services all quoted rates over the telephone in the range of $35 to $50 per hour, plus the additional costs of paint.
