Learn; How to Stripe a Parking Lot

We are in the business of helping others start their own best, small business; How To Stripe a Parking Lot.

Our Manual; How I Stripe a Parking Lot sells, almost daily, into (11) countries for the last 12 years. The testimonies / stories we receive aren’t just about earnings. Yes, it can be a nice living but, testimonies are also about saving their house or helping their husband. That’s why I wrote the book. I was there too. Those stories resonate.

I believe Pavement Marking / Parking Lot Striping is one of the all time best, small business start ups.

Your Benefits

Low Cost To Start

  • $2500.00 to $6000.00…and most of that is machine. The rest is…18″ Traffic Cones, a 30′ Measuring Tape etc., all in my book.     Trust me…You don’t want it to be any less. If it were, anyone could do it and you’d be out of a job.

No Real Shop Is Necessary

  • Work from your own garage. I did for 12 years. A Line Striping Machine is about the size of a lawn mower.
  • Many work from an enclosed trailer. Stencils hang.
  • Some rent a “U Store It” type garage. Gated with 24 hour access.

No Real Inventory

  • “Inventory” is Paint and Stencils.
  • Buy paint, after you have the job, on the way to the job…just what you need for the job.
  • Buy parking lot stencils once. Buy from me. Mine are the best for several reasons, not just cost. And…buy only what you need and only when you need it. I manufacture daily and I ship quickly. Click; Best Parking Lot Stencil to read more.

You Don’t Have To Quit Your Day Job.

  • Some do. Some don’t. I ended up leaving my day job and going full time in year (4).
  • Work part time at first. Your jobs will be few and after hours. Schedule around your current job. I gave clients a window.
  • Stripe the bank or small restaurant after hours or on your day off.

Almost Any Economy

  • The work is “Commercial”. So, when the economy is good, people build parking lots, seal coat parking lots and repair parking lots. I had work.
  • When the economy is slow, ( picture a car dealership or a clothing store ) …businesses will not spend the money to build, seal or repair…but…they’ll stripe the parking lot. I still had work.

Parking Lot Striping is always a BEST SMALL BUSINESS Start Up. I can help. Buy my book. Learn how to stripe a parking lot.

My Experience…

I’ve striped parking lots with 7 cars. I’ve striped parking lots with 1000 cars. I’ve striped roadways, intersections, regional airports, schools, playgrounds, parking garages, indoor floors and more. I’ve done it all and it’s in my book;
