A Good Source of Advice
As part of your due diligence on opening an evaporative coolers wholesale and manufacturers business, it's essential that you have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you.
