How We Started Our Tents For Hire Business in Kisumu

Tents for hire business as a start-up isn’t so hard to start.

In fact, you can buy one double pyramid tent -and- gazebo for starters; set up your physical location -and- you are in business.

But for Tom -and- Ken Tents company, we started with 6 double pyramid tents, 2 single pyramid tents -and- a gazebo. We have since added more tent in our portfolio in all the categories.

We now have enough tents to serve multiple events simultaneously?

How many tents do you need for your event? Say the number -and- we will book you in!

Benefits of Running a Tents For Hire Business in Kenya

  1. The profit margins are good – On a bad business month if you deduct all the overhead costs, wages -and- miscellaneous, you will still make Ksh. 100,000 easily.
  2. It is easy to manage – plus you can easily project future business depending on the number of events lined up in your town, weddings, birthdays -and- funerals.
  3. There is a near certainty that new clients will return -and- bring more business
  4. You get to socialize with people from different organizations, social backgrounds -and- create more networks.

In addition to hiring out your tents, you may also want to sell them -and- make more profits.

But where do you begin if this is your biggest dream in 2019?

How about you identify your target market first?

The Truth!

In as much as we sell most of our tents to individuals, our big market share is with the chamaas.

As a matter of fact, we are currently running an incentive program where we reward chamaas for bringing business our way.

Your Chamaa could make as much as Ksh. 5,000 from any sale of a double pyramid tent that you successfully refer and Ksh. 1,000 for gazebo tents.

When you have identified your tent for sale target market;

Source For Tools To Use To Make a Tent

Here’s a list of all the basic stuff

1. Fabrics

Tents for hire in Kenya

While in the process of sourcing material locally, seek to find stores that sell PVC tent fabrics for the lowest price in Kenya.

In Kisumu, we have Gallani selling Africana PVC fabrics for Ksh. 21,000 (a 50 meter roll).

The same brand of PVC fabric goes for Ksh. 19,500 in Nakuru stores -and- Ksh. 17,000 in Gikomba Nairobi. So, where would you rather buy your fabric?

I’ll leave you to use your wisdom in making the right decision.

2. Hot Air Welder and Tools 

This is the most important tool for a PVC tent welder. Most tent tool stores in Kenya sell the whole pack with rollers -and- different exchangeable heat nozzles for Ksh. 50,000 (original).

On the other hand, the generic blower goes for Ksh. 35,000.

You can however Get The Original Hot Air Welder Pack From Jumia Kenya for Ksh. 7,848 in a 50% limited offer that is currently running on the platform.

Hurry while stock last. The product is shipped from abroad.

3. Human Labor 

After you have bought all the materials needed to make your tent for sale, the tent won’t make itself. Hire a trained tent maker to do the hard work.

Tentmakers don’t have to be your permanent employees.

In Kisumu, Freelance Tent Makers (Fundis) charge an average of Ksh. 2500 and Ksh. 3000 per tent made.

This is not a bad price if you are guaranteed to make Ksh. 10,000 profits when you sell the tent.

Conclusion

We started the Ken -and- Tom Tents Company with a capital of Ksh. 500,000. That’s inclusive of the 6 double pyramid tents that we made at inception, 2 single pyramid tents, a gazebo, among other logistics -and- overheads of starting-up.

You however don’t need that much money to start. 

Starting up was high on our side because Tom -and- Ken Tents Company was a tent for hire business that transitioned into selling tents. As a hire business, we needed more tents to make more money hence that high start-up amount.

If you are interested in pursuing this venture as a tentmaker, Ksh. 150,000 should be enough.
