I am asking for opinions please of a tentative business idea my partner has.
He has recently retired as a police sergeant and is looking to combine his love and addiction of canals, by offering a service to other narrow boat owners.
He has had a connection to the canal most of his life, going back to his childhood and has owned a narrowboat of his own for nearly 20yrs.
Can you see a requirement/demand where you may require your boat moving for you to a new location, whether temporary or permanent. We know the problems of wanting to be one place but the car is in another and its such a hassle, going backwards and forwards.
A further service offering, water top up, loo emptying, oil and fuel top ups, coal collection and general cleaning of inside and out.
If there are any other services that you think may be of interest, please let me know.
