HISTORICAL ONGOING GROWTH - NO MATTER WHAT THE STATE OF THE ECONOMY

The establishment of a website, marketing, social media presence, and a digital booking platform will almost certainly attract new customers. The employment of an on-road salesperson would also inject a significant increase in sales.

BARRIERS TO MARKET ENTRY

* The high cost of specialist equipment for large trucks and earthmoving equipment
* Establishing supplier accounts may prove difficult
* The cost of establishing suitable premises in a high-exposure location

NO RELIANCE ON SALES STAFF TO GENERATE SALES
