7. S.W.O.T. Analysis


Established for many years, very well positioned on busy thoroughfare, in close proximity to car dealers, panel beaters and light industrial businesses. Well equipped with potential to grow into a profitable business  


Short on additional cash flow as owner has exhausted his resources on improvements.


Grow the client base by signing up more contracts and marketing the trailer rental side more aggressively. Also get the snack bar/coffee shop going to provide a better client experience.
