The SubSolve Story
What Does a Moving Franchise Cost?
The cost for opening up a moving franchise can vary based on the setup of your operation. The most economical way to get started would be to rent a small office space with minimal parking and to lease your trucks. If your preference is to purchase an office space and trucks, then your start up costs will grow significantly. We can help you with ways to save money as you start up but not cut any corners. We have learned plenty of tricks and tips to get started as economically as possible and are excited to share these with you.
On the low end, expect to need around $90,000 for start up costs and 3 months of expenses. A franchisee may also need as much $166,000 on the high end if going with the purchasing route. Either way, we suggest a minimum of $50,000 in cash assets available and the rest can be secured through a variety of sources. We can also help with finding financing options that work best for your situation.

How Does MoveLink Works To Streamline the System?
As with any business start-up, during your launch you will be the jack of all trades and will need to handle every facet of the business. To best prepare our franchisees to succeed, we realized the need to develop a software system to handle daily business actions. Having a client management software tailored to our needs frees up more of your time to focus on selling jobs and grooming the leaders who will run your in-field and office operations.
Can I Scale a Suburban Solutions Franchise?
Adding additional territories is always an option. We recommend getting yourself acclimated and comfortable with our processes before opening up an additional branch.
Depending on availability, you can purchase a neighboring territory or open up a completely separate territory. To open up a separate territory, you would first need to promote or hire a director to manage your current branch.

A Day In the Life Of a Suburban Solutions Franchise?
A typical day at Suburban Solutions is difficult to define. Very rarely are any two days alike. As a franchisee you will be wearing many different hats, especially in the earlier stages until you are able to form a stable foundation and motivated staff to help run the business.
To run a successful business, we can effectively categorize the responsibilities between two roles: Sales and Operations. We have included some highlights of the roles;
Sales: The sales role is a little more focused and revolves around responding to job requests in a quick and thorough manner. The rest of your day will be filled with fielding phone calls, marketing tasks, visiting potential jobs as well as resourcing confirmed appointments.
Operations: Job Prep with material and inventory check, morning dispatch, check in with in-field crews, perform site visits, update daily audits, invoicing and the myriad of customer service tasks.
