A Good Source of Advice

If you are interested in starting a carpet, rug, and upholstery storage and repair business, the next step is to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think owners of nearby carpet, rug, and upholstery storage and repair businesses will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

The availability of acquisition capital should be a major factor in your decision. Commercial lenders are usually more inclined to fund acquisitions than startups.
