The plumbing industry provides general maintenance and repair services to residential and commercial customers, including plumbing and electrical repairs, appliance installation and repair etc.

Emergency repair work like unclogging drains or repairing burst water mains represent a significant source of industry revenue. Plumbers can also supply plumbing appliances and coupling products for construction projects as a means of increasing income for the business.

Some key points to consider:

Know your niche -Do some research to know which plumbing areas are least covered by other companies. Your niche may be commercial maintenance, hospitals, nursing homes or large scale buildings and warehouses. Whichever it may be, make sure that you pick a niche that you can handle well.

Training & Experience – Without knowing a particular field of plumbing inside out, your business will go directionless. So, get a first-hand experience of the work in which you want to branch out. This is especially important if you are not a licensed plumber yet.

Business Cards – One of the key things you must have for your business is a business card. The card should have all of your contact details such as a phone number, fax number, website address, email address, company location etc. This comes in handy when a client wants to contact your company for your services.

Business Plan – A Business Plan is like your guide that helps you keep on the right track. Do not mistake the plan for merely chalking out some financial resources here and there. It is not a randomly created list of Do’s or Dont’s. The fact is that the plan involves all things that you are going to do in the next many years even a decade related to your business. Merely having a company logo design for your plumbing business is not enough. If you need any help in this area it is better to make use of a professional business plan consultant that can share his experience with you.

Unique Logo – A uniquely designed logo does many things for the advancement of any business including your plumbing start – up. A logo is not just a symbolic representation of what your company makes or sells. It is not just a trademark to legally identifying your business. More than that, it is a visual that attracts your potential customers to your offerings or services. They will identify and verify your services by checking your logo.
