Just The Lift You Need

As anyone who has ever needed to move several items around their house or premises will tell you, dismantling, lifting, moving and re-assembling is not for the faint-hearted or weak-backed! One impact of catalogue and online buying has been the increase in larger items that require delivery to the home or office and not everyone is lucky enough to have a strong man willing and able to give a hand to roll out a heavy carpet or to lug heavy boxes up several flights of stairs.

Who You Gonna Call?

Our featured business this week One Hour Labour is a flexible, mobile, heavy-lifting service offered, as the name suggests, by the hour in Dublin city. Available at very short notice and for however many hours are needed, their staff are fully trained, certified in manual handling and are fully insured and mobile. Zipping about the city on their mopeds, armed with folding trolleys  and power tools, Pat Keogh and his team are ready to give everyone the lift they need!

Bring In The Heavy Hitters

Rather than looking at selling their services one sofa or office table at time, Gerard suggested Pat initally focus his marketing efforts on the people who supply the heavy items, those natural referrers who will send business Pat's way again and again. As Pat himself said, those companies who in the past needed two staff to travel with a truckload of heavy items. Now they can simply use a driver and Pat's team can swoop in for the hour or two that's needed to lift the heavy items from the truck into their rightful place in your home or premises.

Over To You

How do you suggest Pat and his team attract the attention of those natural referrers? Listen back to the show on the Newstalk Kickstart Your Business blog and let us know what you think. We'd love to hear from you.
