    Being on site in a marina with a van, truck or trailer emblazoned with your canvas business’ name on the side is one way to build business. It’s a valuable marketing tool, one that people can see with their own eyes.

  • The primary reason many fabricators set up mobile shops is to avoid wasting time traveling back and forth between a boat and their canvas shop after discovering a problem during installation or a tool missing from the travel bag.
  • Careful planning is essential to avoid wasting time on road trips: plot the route, decide which tools and materials to take and lay out the on-site task sequence.
  • The van has to be loaded in a way to facilitate completing all the planned work within the designated time period.
  • A clean and well-organized van assures prospective customers of quality work.
