Recession proof business. Easy to run self advertising business with minimal overheads, repeat customers and no franchise fees

Fully equipped – This dog van provide an easily run, self advertising business with repeat customers which you go back to every 1 to 8 weeks (some people have their dogs washed every one or two weeks). All dog washes and grooming is carried out outside the customer’s home or work in this specially designed mobile grooming van. You just plug the extension lead into the customer’s electricity supply to power the van lights, water heater, bath shower and all the electrical appliances. Some vans use a generator but this is not necessary with power hook up. To start the business all you will need to do is put your phone number and business name on the side of the van and you are away. You will get so much work that you have to turn work away. The van advertises itself as people can’t miss what it does. There are over eight million dogs in the UK and this is the easiest way for people to get their dogs bathed and groomed without leaving their home or work. It provides a great service for the old/busy people and you get to meet a lot of people. People come to you while you’re working in the van for appointments and your phone rings with customers.

 

EARNINGS - Working on a daily average of 3-6 wash / grooming jobs per day, you could very quickly be earning in excess of £800 per week. Therefore the van will repay your investment in a short period of time. You can learn how to wash a dog and groom a dog (how hard can that be) by doing a short course just Google dog grooming training or look at this link http://www.dog-grooming-school.co.uk/UK-Dog-Grooming-Schools.htm  A sample Mobil Grooming Price List and some Accredited Grooming Training Centres is at the end of this add.

VAN FITTED WITH DELUXE MOBILE HYDRO-BATH / BLASTER / GROOMING TABLE / POWER HOOK UP / AND MORE!!!!! See photos below

Deluxe Electric Mobile Hydrobath
Comes with a hot water tank attached which can hold enough water to wash 8-10 dogs in a day. The bath incorporates a 1.5Kw heating element that heats up to a set 55 degrees and an electric hydro pump. The van uses power hook up the same as a motor home. You just plug the extension lead into the customer’s electricity supply. The water you fill up at home and take with you for the day. This newly designed Mobile Hydrobath has the water tank fitted at the back of the bath which allows it to be fitted into a smaller van which is easier to drive and park. The hydrobath is made in the UK. All parts can be got on the internet or at a plumber’s merchant. The bath and van are designed so that any plumber or electrician will be able to fix any problem and get the parts.

Professional Hydraulic Grooming Table

A brilliant product that is ideal for professional dog grooming salons everywhere.  Made from the finest materials, it has been solidly constructed to ensure optimum stability and performance.  The coated frame is solid and durable while the adjustable feet add even more stability so you can always be assured when using this dog grooming table. Adjusted using a foot-operated bar that can move the table between 19” and 40”.  This will enable any dog to jump onto the table and also allows you to adjust it to a suitable working height, reducing the strain on your back.  Also supplied with this dog grooming table is a useful H-bar that will allow you to tether dogs at the front and rear to make them secure during grooming.

Electric Double Motor Blaster Dryer

Extremely powerful, yet lightweight blaster dryer with 2 x 1500w motors which will make short work of drying long or thick coated breeds of dogs.

All you need are your grooming hand tools (brushes, scissors, clippers, towels, shampoos etc.)

IF YOU WOULD LIKE FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT ME (Bob) DIRECTLY ON - 01425 271279.

Viewing

We sincerely recommend a viewing. The van is on the south coast in Christchurch Dorset. Pick up at local station if needed. Inspection and test drive welcomed. We have been in mobile grooming for years and now designed and manufacturer grooming vans. All equipment inside the van is new but as the van is used it is being sold as a second hand van. Family members still work in dog grooming and we do not want to sell a van to any one working in Bournemouth or Poole area as we have many repeat customers that have been coming back for years. Please email me (Bob) to arrange a viewing or call 01425 271279. I have been as accurate as possible in describing this van, but please remember it is not a brand new van. Look at all the photos. If you are the winning bidder, please make contact by email or phone us to arrange payment of a £100 deposit within 24 hours, with the balance payable by cash or bank transfer. Sorry, no cheques. If you want to pay with Pal Pal you have to pay the fees (over £250) so no Pay Pal really. We are flexible on collection and viewing we may even deliver (For £1 a mile) after inspection and full payment.

 

PLEASE,GENUINE BIDDERS ONLY.

If you make a bid or an offer phone me as well (01425 271279 Bob) or leave your phone when you bid as there are too many time waster on Ebay we need to confirm your status before we accept your bid.

 
 
This may be of interest to you. Found in an internet search we did.
Starting A Mobile Dog Grooming Business
Many newly qualified dog groomers are attracted to the Mobile Dog Grooming business.  As a new business set-up the advantages are obvious; no premises to secure, no long term lease (and rent) commitments, lower overheads, greater location flexibility, etc. etc. 
From your customer’s perspective there is the convenience of having the dog groomer attend at their home.  Many people find this less stressful for both the dog and themselves as there is no travelling involved no traffic, parking, leaving their dog behind, etc. etc.  A mobile dog grooming service is invaluable for any pet owners who are housebound or have mobility difficulties.
Estimates show that there are almost eight million dogs in the UK, with over 85% of owners stating that their pets are for companionship.
The mobile dog grooming business has been around for a long time, but has seen a noticeable increase in popularity in recent years, as our lifestyles have changed.  More and more dog owners have a busy life, giving a greater inconvenience in visiting the dog grooming salon to drop off and collect their dogs within normal opening times.  Obviously, many dog owners simply enjoy the convenience of having the groomer visit their home. Some owners prefer to have the dog groomer visit their home as they find their dog is much calmer and happier about the grooming experience and is out of their home for a much shorter period of time.
There are still many towns that don’t have sufficient coverage from good quality mobile dog groomers and you should research your market and potential operating area thoroughly when formulating your plans.  Even in locations that already have mobile grooming services operating, there is always room for one more!
Whether you’re at the stage where you’re just interested in the possibility of taking a course in dog grooming to enter the dog grooming business, a recently trained dog groomer or a professional groomer looking to branch out on your own, here’s ten good reasons for considering a mobile dog grooming business:

Ten Good Reasons For Considering A Mobile Dog Grooming Business

1.               You get to know your customers better on a one-to-one basis.  You will have time to get to know their wants and desires for their individual dog.

2.               Higher fees are chargeable.  This is a personalised service and your customers understand that fees for a mobile dog grooming service will generally be higher than those charged at a dog grooming salon. 

3.               You will be able to pick up additional business at some appointments.  Your customer’s neighbours and friends may wish to utilise your dog grooming service whilst at the appointment (your other appointment times permitting).

4.               No long-term commitment to premises.  No leases to sign, premises maintenance and repairs or local taxes to pay.  No fixed opening and closing times and your investment is going into your own vehicle and mobile grooming business.

5.               A convenient way to work.  Less interruptions from other customers arriving and leaving, less telephone interruptions.  The dog which you are grooming will be less stressed and better behaved in the one-on-one environment.

6.               Existing customers quickly spread the word about your unique and convenient dog grooming service.  Generating increased business for you and a quick growth to your determined capacity.

7.               Free daily advertising for your service.  Vehicle lettering on your mobile grooming unit is a constant FREE advertising billboard for your mobile dog grooming business, generating new interest and enquiries daily.

8.               You get a break between clients.  An excellent stress-buster, time to yourself between appointments.

9.               Take time off when you need to.  No need for excuses, just don’t book an appointment during the times that you need to be away from your business  - and if you choose to make up the time,  you have the flexibility to book other out of hours appointments to balance your working time.

10.            Satisfaction and pride.  You’re offering a unique and valued professional dog grooming service; you should take pride in your success.  

 

A mobile dog grooming business has a good future in the UK market, either as a stand-alone business or as a profitable add-on for an existing pet grooming business.  Besides a lucrative business income, working from your mobile grooming van can offer comparatively low start up costs, lower overheads than a shop-based salon and a stress free working environment.

Terms of sale
Descriptions of used items can be subjective and sometimes we can miss things. This is not something that we do deliberately. All second hand items are sold completely as seen and without warranty. We always do our best to resolve a situation. On collection of a purchase, ample opportunity will be allowed to check all items and documents. If a second hand vehicle is purchased a test drive will be allowed so the vehicle can be tested in a variety of situations. Customers are always left to test / inspect vehicles prior to parting with any money and it is only once you have satisfied yourself that the purchase is made and the sale completed and payment made. If when you come to collect a vehicle you find it is significantly mis-described we will not force you to purchase it. In years of selling on eBay we have never forced anyone to buy something they are not happy with.
 
Return items only accepted if items are posted out to you and you have not had the opportunity to inspect goods before purchase.
(As detailed in the distance selling laws)
 
Items may be withdrawn from sale at any time as we advertise in other places.
