Default Hi From Ontario!

Hi, I found this site by googling around and following links.

Hubby and I have had our own small biz for over 14 yrs and it's been very successful. He provides a mobile service to car dealers in our area, doing touchup work on their vehicles to repair paint chips, scuffs, small dings, and scratches. He also fixes cracked and split plastic bumpers. He does not do rust or major paint work.

Our business grew so fast that he found it hard to keep up and about 5-6 yrs ago we sold half of it to a friend, in order to lighten hubby's work load. That fellow is still at it, and loving it too! He's built up his own large clientele base.

There are some franchises around who do similar work as hubby does tho they dont do the larger jobs like split bumper repair. We are not part of any franchise and like it that way!

We are now branching out into online sales of touchup kits for the do it yourselfer. There are a number of companies in the US that do this but we havent found any in Canada. If they exist, they dont appear to be online. We feel confident this will work, and we have our website well under way and have amassed our supplies and have our logo in place thanks to a graphic artist friend. Our plan is to be ready to roll by the end of next week, my birthday is our goal I think this is very do-able.

This looks like a great forum and site, I am happy to have found it.
