When people started losing jobs plus businesses shutting down, I knew I was heading for strenuous times; But I decided to stay put so that I can last as long as possible.
I thought of doing more than 2 things to help myself and others stay afloat while I figure out a future for my business.
The first step I took was to downsize my workforce plus retain only one Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman. Then I moved from the premises I rented to a smaller commercial store-like office where I kept all my unsold Heating plus Air Conditioning products for sale. I also stopped opening the store properly because of reduced business. While away on most nights, I noticed that Heating plus Air Conditioning maintenance requests increased however the purchase plus Heating plus Air Conditioning upgrade requests dipped. Over time I couldn’t sell any current Heating plus Air Conditioning systems although I got requests for used products with superb seer ratings, including complete central air conditioning system units. The only items I was able to sell as current were air purification systems. So while the current unit was not moving, I opted to shop for, plus store used heating plus cooling appliances for resale. Some of them Heating plus Air Conditioning technology were in bad shape although I refurbished most of them for resale plus even liaised with a reseller Heating plus Air Conditioning business to meet orders that I couldn’t fulfill. This shift in upgrade stream forced myself and others to source for more about Heating plus Air Conditioning used items plus even rename by Heating plus Air Conditioning business name to include the word ‘used’ in the tagline. As much as the business took a turn for the best, none of these appliances attract an cooling system maintenance plan however buyers are ok with that.
