You’ve decided to start your own junk hauling business and want to know which of the junk hauling franchises you should join. In order to best answer that question, you need to consider several aspects between the companies to know which one will be the best for you to join. We will discuss some of these aspects below.
Are Any Already in Your Local Area?
Junk hauling franchises are an opportunity that has been growing for a decade or more now, so chances are high that most areas already have one or more of these companies there.
Therefore, you need to check your local area to see what companies are already there. If there is already a franchise of one company, it is very likely they will not want another franchise in that same area. You would either have to move to another area or even state to perhaps have that specific junk hauling company grant you a franchise, or you would have to go with another junk hauling franchise in order for the franchisor to give you a business using their company name and brand.
Specific Aspects and Unique Selling Proposition (USP)
You also need to consider what each company provides in terms of support, resources, and more. This is especially true if you are not that knowledgeable in the area of business; having a helpful company and brand behind you could help to compensate for your weaknesses until you can learn the ropes of the business.
You should also determine what each junk hauling franchise’s unique selling proposition is – what makes that brand different from its competitors? Is it the way they remove the junk? Is it the time they spend to remove unwanted items? Is it something else? What makes that specific company different from the rest? Do you want to be a part of that USP? Do you feel it could do well in your area?
All of these questions and factors are things you must carefully consider to decide upon which franchise is the best opportunity for you to join as a franchisee.
