Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs

If you are seriously contemplating launching a bed rental and leasing business, it's a smart move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.

But, a person who owns a bed rental and leasing business in a different city may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

How do you find an owner of a bed rental and leasing business who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?

No problem! Just use the link below and try a random city/state or zipcode. Then start dialing for advice until you are successful.

Three Arguments for Buying a Bed Rental & Leasing Business

At Gaebler, we think it makes a lot of sense to explore a bed rental and leasing business purchase before committing to a startup.

You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.

  • Proven Profitability. Startups struggle to bring in revenue right out of the gate while existing businesses usually have a steady stream of income.
  • Operational Efficiency. When you're shopping for a bed rental and leasing business, be sure to look for ones that have all of the necessary processes and systems to ensure seamless operations from your first day of ownership.
  • Funding. With several years of operations under its belt, a purchased company is much more appealing to lenders and investors interested in avoiding the risk of an unproven startup.

Explore Franchising Options

Your chances for surviving in business greatly improve if you go the franchising route and benefit from the prior work of others and their lessons learned.

If you are thinking about opening a bed rental and leasing business, you would be wise to determine whether there are good franchise opportunities available that might alleviate your startup process.

The link below gives you access to our franchise directory so you can see if there's a franchise opportunity for you. You might even find something that points you in a completely different direction.
