Business Planning
Is your equipment ready for the new season?
Now's the time to make sure that everything is ready for the coming busy events season. There's nothing worse than turning up to an event and a piece of vital equipment fails at the busiest time of day resulting in lost earnings or worse, stock being binned and having to close up and go home.
Pre season check list
Getting together a check list of items is relatively easy, starting with priority legally required tests and certificates to general servicing and vital repairs.
1. Legally required. Main equipment test certificates are best organised to be carried out before and not during the season. These may include gas and electricity, ride safety and unit or amusement construction condition.
2. Essential equipment. Focus on equipment that keeps everything else working and which are subject to sudden failure such as electricity generators and inflatable blowers, look at trailer jockey wheels and prop legs etc.
3. Working equipment. Make sure all day to day working equipment items have been fully serviced, cleaned and if needed repairs are carried out.
