What’s on offer?


Do you want to own a profitable and competitive construction business with the ability to grow to the size you want? INTAKS, New Zealand's leading scaffolding and edge protection supplier, offers a business start-up opportunity. A scaffolding business earns money by installing scaffolding and edge protection equipment for homeowners, painters, roofers, builders, and construction companies.

Benefits of starting your own scaffolding business


Starting up your own businesses means that you get to decide who you want to work with, what hours you want to work and call all of the shots in your career. You can earn good money, building up wealth for when you retire and get a lot of satisfaction from building up your business. Being your own boss and having completely flexible working hours is the biggest drawcard for many. You can have more time for your family and recreation too.


What to consider when starting up?


Setting up any business takes research, planning and work. It’s pivotal to be clear on the business you’re wanting to start-up and where you’re wanting to head. There are a few key considerations when you begin. Decide on your business structure, identify premises to operate from, acquire the right vehicles, purchase quality scaffolding, take out liability insurance, employ key staff, work out key business processes, and set competitive business prices.


How to make your start-up scaffolding business succeed

Once you’ve mapped out your plan you’ll need to conduct market research to see what prices competitors are offering in the scaffolding and edge protection market. You could speak to local builders and construction companies too to get an idea about what they would be willing to pay and how they operate. This is also a great way to start connecting with potential clients as you start engaging with them and showing them how your service can benefit them.


Use quality scaffolding


If you’re starting up a scaffolding and edge protection business you will need, and most likely want the best quality scaffolding and edge protection equipment.
