Mobile Store on Wheels For Sale | Call 516-333-7483 | Buy affordable used buses to convert them into mobile storefronts
What will you do when the number of customers walking into your store decreases? What will you do if you want more sales and increase revenue? What will you do if you want to start a new branch? The answer to the first question is to investigate why the foot traffic has decreased and take countermeasures to restore and increase the traffic. But the answer to the second question is to get more customers. The answer to the third question is that it takes roughly $100,000 to start a new retail outlet. The logic behind all the 3 questions is the same, it’s to get new customers. If you are a startup or already have a brick and mortar retail storefront and want to increase your customer database, why not start a mobile storefront by purchasing an affordable used shuttle bus for sale and converting it into a shop on wheels? The advantages are more than obvious, firstly starting a shop on wheels will cost less than $20,000 compared to a traditional outlet as mention above. Secondly, the shop can move on to new locations on demand in search of new customers. People are lazy and don’t want to travel too far for shopping. A grocery store located on the other side of the railway track will never get customers from this side of the tracks. Similarly, a dental clinic will not get customers from other blocks in the neighborhood. After a couple of years, many retail shop owners reach a point where the market becomes saturated. They know the customers in person and it’s always the same customers who keep walking in again and again. They want new faces to step into their shops, to increase sales and revenue but to achieve this they will have to reach out to a new group of people in new locations. One way is to start a new shop in neighboring locations but that will be very costly. The best way is to buy a fairly priced used minibus for sale and remove the 15 passenger seats. This will leave an empty space of 220 sq feet or 1500 cubic feet big. This tiny space alone can serve more than 50 different types of retail businesses. For example; dental clinics, physical therapy, grocery stores, barbershops, beauty salons, hair stylists, pet groomers, animal transportation, food trucks, coffee shops, and so on.
Of course, the bus shop will be smaller than a 1,000 sq feet retail store and obviously carry less inventory but it will enable the business to reach out to new people in newer locations. The mobile shop can offer products at a discounted price to attract impulsive buyers. This one strategy will not only increase the number of customers but will also increase profits from a smaller investment in buying a bus. There are more than 1,000 small businesses across the United States who have already started selling on their mobile stores. Now, that’s a small number compared to the rest of the country but the trend is catching steam. The cherry on top is when Amazon started its Trade Truck to connect with people on cell phones to its mobile shop. Amazon is a trendsetter and its entry alone will have thousands of small businesses jump on to the mobile store experience in the coming years. Research has proven that it’s easier to sell to a customer who has already been sold. Once a customer walks-in, get to know them and connect with them on social media or collect their phone number if they are comfortable sharing that information with you and let them know the next time you will be available in the local area. Fix a day and time to visit several customer hotspots across the city in a week. After some time the customers will be familiar with your mobile shop, and when they receive a good shopping experience they will be getting more referral customers by word of mouth advertising. Attracting attention is never difficult with a traveling store, have some jokers dance on the rooftop or better still attach 4 flat-screen TV making a cube and play some popular sports or program and people will be looking at your store in no time.
Food trucks and barbershops have been using mobile shops for a long time. The time has come for other small businesses from other industries to catch on to the trend and increase their sales too. The greatest advantage of owning a mobile storefront is that it insulates the business against natural calamities, socio-political crises, and economic uncertainties. During the CoronaVirus pandemic, many smart entrepreneurs visited their customers in-person to deliver goods and services because the shoppers were not allowed to gather at retail stores.
