Big-Screen TV's business.
Starting a big-screen TV rental business can be a great way to get into business on a minimal capital investment. Big-screen TVs can be rented to corporate clients for presentation purposes, seminars as visual aids, TV production companies for props, trade shows for video demonstrations, and just about any sports fan seeking to watch the playoffs in style. Furthermore, the business can be operated from a homebased location, and the monthly overhead costs to run the business are virtually nonexistent.
start-up costs: Big-screen TVs cost between $1,500 and $5,000 depending on how large you want to go. You will also need a van for deliveries, and good heavy-duty dolly equipment to move the TVs around once at the rental site. Investment range is $5,000 to $10,000 for equipment costs and an additional $5,000 to purchase secondhand delivery transportation.
profit potential: Once again, the amount of revenue this rental business can generate, will depend on a few factors, such as how many TVs you are going to be renting and the rental rates that your local market will bare. Current rental rates for big-screen TVs are $75 to $100 per day and up to $250 per week. Providing you can secure a total of 40 rentals per month, the business would generate sales in excess of $40,000 per year.
