PLEASE! Don’t buy a Kwik Kerb® business until you know the FACTS!

Have a look at what a seller is trying to get for a near new business: “ As a new package the cost is around $85,000. We are prepared to sell it for $15,000 - The unit has hardly been used, and many items have never been used”

Don’t pay many  $1,000’s more that you need to . We are the original inventors of the ZippyKerb back in 1982; we can set you up for around 10% of the above mentioned price of $85,000



Demonstrator machines also available - save
Master Licenses now available for Australian and the World.

ZIPPYKERB can produce 35 meters of quality continuous concrete edging per hour with a minimum of preparation and no fuss or mess.

The Zippykerb is self propelled and only needs guiding, it will only move forward when there is mix in the hopper. This is a mother and son team, one of our best independant Zippy Kerb operators. Lorna is feeding the Machine while Paul guides it. Lorna is now our Zippykerb operators training manager.

It is not ‘hard’ work as you are only working with coarse river sand and cement - mixed in a mixer then taken to the ZippyKerb in a wheelbarrow and shoveled into the hoper. The Zippykerb can easily do up to 30 meters per hour. .

Don’t pay many $1000’s of dollars for next to nothing!

Zippykerb Owners Agree: Zippykerb is far better value for money than our competitor Kwik Kerb®

Buying any business is an important decision Zippykerb is GENUINE value for money.

TO BE CLEAR:
We are NOT KwikKerb®

We do not want to be associated with
 Kwik Kerb® in any way .

We Began business in 1982 many years before Kwik Kerb®. Kwik Kerb® is charging what we consider to be ridiculous prices for their business opportunity.

You can save many $1,000’s on the asking price of a Kwik Kerb® Business with our Zippykerb Package and purchase a new or used mixer and trailer (or Ute)  locally.

You will find that Zippykerb offers REAL value for money as a proven full or part time business. We are the original inventors of the Zippykerb Continuous Concrete Edging. Zippykerb is a better deal than Kwik Kerb® in HUGE cost advantage, in the quality of the Zippykerb Machine, our training manuals, our lead generation web sites and our ongoing support from over 30 years’ experience.

ZippyKerb (the Original) is NOT Kwik Kerb®

ZIPPYKERB produces high quality continuous concrete edging in a variety of shapes and designs it is the fastest and easiest continuous edging machine to use and operate.

Tough and Reliable .  The only report we have on file of a machine breaking down is one that fell from the back of a Ute on the freeway... even then, the body was straightened with a sledge hammer and it’s still working today!

Every ZIPPYKERBis 100%Australian manufactured by fully qualified 3rd generation engineers who produce quality in all they do – Zippykerb bodies are baked powdercoat. Hand tools are all handmade. Every ZippyKerb carries  a 15 Year Guarantee .

 

The Exclusive ZIPPYKERB Training Manuals

Our manual covers every aspect of the business gained in our 27 years experience in ZIPPYKERB and our other sales training and building companies.

This includes training on the use of the ZIPPYKERB machine, sales techniques, marketing, advertising, quoting the jobs etc.  

A complete and success proven -Turn Key Business Package.

The Market potential

There are thousands of potential clients for ZIPPYKERB Continuous Concrete Borders – in residential, commercial, industrial, government, council’s etc  ... wherever there are gardens and landscaping.

Zippykerb edging is available in many shapes, colours and designs.

Income Potential

There are NO royalties or ongoing fees of any kind - ZIPPYKERB is not a franchise - every cent you earn is yours.

 Income potential always depends on a number of things, such as whether you work full or part time on the business, location etc.

We can show you an example but Please Note, it is not an accurate projection to base your decision to purchase on, prices vary by region, job size, edging style etc.

Income Assumptions- based on a week.

  • That a team of 2 people, a senior person and junior helper does 3 plain concrete jobs and 3 coloured stamped jobs.
  • That each job averages 50 meters
  • That they sell the plain concrete jobs for $18.00 per meter and the coloured stamped for $25.00 per meter (average current Sydney prices).
  • That the average cost of the materials for the plain concrete job is around $2.50 per meter
  • And the cost of materials for the coloured stamped job is around $3.50 per meter
  • That a junior helper is paid $20.00 per hour (varies with age/ location).

In this week, the team does 150 meters of plain concrete edging and  150 meters of stamped coloured edging:

150 meters plain edging @ $18.00
$2,700
150 meters stamped edging @ $ 25.00
$3,750
Gross income for the week
$6,450
Estimated Fixed Costs:

Fixed costs
$1,400
Profit remaining
$5,050

 

Selling prices vary on the size of the job and style. And things happen - like flat tires and rain or forgetting something – all affecting income. .

The profit shown doesn’t include overheads such as vehicle running, office (most people work from home) advertising etc.

We suggest being very conservative and work out your ‘start-up’ projections on as little as 1 or 2 jobs per week.

Even on ONE job a week, ZIPPYKERB is still a very good business – especially as a part time income stream.

One job:        Say 50m of stamped coloured edging at $25 per metre

Selling price $1,250.       Materials $175.     Helper (say) $120.        Outlay $295 .   Leaving a net profit of around $955

One such job a week – over 12 months net’s around $49,000

The main benefits of ZIPPYKERB

  • An opportunity to be your own boss - either full or part time.
  • A product with high consumer acceptance that is becoming more popular every day
  • Exceptional profit margins, typically the materials cost of the finished edging is around 12% of the job price.
  • Most ZIPPYKERB business are home based with low overhead
  • There is a PROVEN “Blueprint” for success backed by our 27 years experience to help fast track your skills.

ZIPPYKERB Edging has high consumer acceptance.  

People buy continuous edging because the product represents genuine value for money.

As well as being functional, it looks good and helps make their property look good to themselves and others.

This combination of looking good to you &making you look good to othersis one of the most powerful internal buying motivators, making the selling of a value for money product much easier.

How much business is there?

In today’s economic climate, some of the best businesses to be in are home improvements / building / landscaping – everyone is into improvements and appearanceZIPPYKERB fits right in there. .

Think of how many companies there are in your area doing say rain gutters, roofing or glazing!

Look in the yellow pages at the number of glazing businesses there are, we just did and there must be hundreds in Sydney alone.

ZIPPYKERB ’s potential clients include:  home owners, apartments, commercial, industrial, government parks, clubs, council’s etc

In our experience, the absolute reality is that the market has not even been scratched, many homeowners, landscapers, builders, architects would see the product as a major benefit to their property or business, and most would only have a vague idea that it exists.

We know of one operator who worked exclusively with three landscape contractors and never needed to look for further work, indeed, when I was running a crew full time I got all of my business from four landscape contractors.

One of our favourite sayings: 

“He who whispers down the well about the things he has to sell will never make as many dollars as he who climbs the tree and hollers”.

Success is the result  of planning and effort.  

Nothing can compete with getting out and showing / talking / exposing others to what you have to offer.

ZIPPYKERB is a proven  win / win business opportunity:

  If there is potential for business between us it will be because we exchange value.

In your case a financial investment where we make a fair profit - while we provide you with value in a business package that it is relatively low risk with the potential to provide generous immediate and long-term income.

ZIPPYKERB is one of the Noble May group of companies:

 Since developing ZIPPYKERB in 1982 we have gone on to develop a number of very successful local and international businesses:

  • One of the world’s most successful training and consulting organisations with many 100’s of clients worldwide, including many of the world’s largest companies in the USA, Asia, Europe  and Australia  
    www.noblemay.com.au         
  • Australia’s largest online business directory and instant “Website Tonight web site builders.
    www.hellococky.com.au

    www.allpage1.com
  • Past owners of one of Australia’s largest building materials manufacturers and building companies with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville, Newcastle, Orange, Griffith, Wagga Wagga (Now sold).

The experience and success we have to pass on in all aspects of Business, Training and the Internet is a major positive to consider becoming aZIPPYKERB owner.

Re: concrete edging
Five years ago i look into kwik kerb,they were at Jeff's shed and it was at a franchise weekend promotion. Your cost was only $38,000 for a trailor full of all the equipment which had to come from brisbane. But before you get that far you had to spend 2 week's in brisbane for training at your cost. They give you advertising support for 1 month and then your on your own. A lot of work so far no guarantee of income.So in 5 years the equipment & 1 weeks training at double the price. :cool:

Re: concrete Kwik Kerb Edging
Hi Guys.

Well well well can I tell you a bit about crap kerb ( I mean kwik kerb)

Yeah it's all about high pressure sales... we got sucked in in 2001 and after the three days training and it was very airy fairy ... we went out on our own and knew absolutely nothing... we paid $37,400 for a demo model and it certainly wasn't worth that or anywhere near $80,000!!

We got no ongoing support and had to learn ourselves on the job. Quoting took a lot out of the day competing with backyard guys who had very little overheads.. advertising was all up to us as they never gave us leads as promised! Basically after 12 months we were insolvent and they wouldn't even buy back the equipment .. then they offerred us $4000 !! so we soldiered on built up the mowing business and did KK part time during winter till we sold it to some poor bugger for $14,000 who we trained ourselves and he went out under his own banner as KK wanted to charge him $7500 for three days training.... so steer clear anyone they are a bunch of rip off merchants with no morals at all!!!!

Re: concrete Kwik Kerb Edging
There are always Kwik Kerp businesses for sale in the paper here, I think that says it all! Quite often the poor buggers end up selling the equipment thru the trader for a couple of grand coz they can't sell it as a business! :( :(

Re: concrete Kwik Kerb Edging
I was considering adding kerbing to my mowing business,they sent me the info. I then stopped off at franchisees I saw around and asked their opinion and they all said the same thing, inferior equipment, you can not build up a business to sell because it is all one off work, most home builders have their own equipment to do kerbs so little if any new work in new estates which is one of their biggest advertising draw cards. You travell hundreds of Kms so overheads are high. When you sell the equipment it has to be A1 condition due to contract arrangements, and quess where the equipment needs to come from.
I was told to stay mowing lawns, it is not worth it. And they were trying to off load kerbing and mow lawns.

As long as you target the landscapers and builders and pick up a few, there is your income, sounds to me like you would be better off buying the equipment brand new to save some bucks, that is if you are really considering it.
I would definately be starting from scratch as you might find "any regular clients" that you get could go with someone else who has been doing it alot longer.

Also I don't know how often you would be charging $35.00 per meter, I have found that the ones I have used all charge between $15.00 to $23.00 p/m depending on style, colour etc

Kwik Kerb - So bloody expensive!
Kwik Kerb must be one of the worst business opportunities anyone could buy... I've just been told its now $95,000!!! for a business unit
I've looked at it and cant see how it would cost more than $15000 - $20,000 at a Max to produce ...HUGE up front profit to kwik Kerb
I see lots of unfortunate souls selling virtually unused Units for around $20,000
Some as low as $10,000
What in earth possesses people to pay for this overpriced business?
What are they being told to entice them?
shocking

And an ad

Kwik Kerb® Franchise Get the facts

A franchise business is a business in which the owners, or franchisers, sell the rights to their business logo and model to third parties, called franchisees. Franchises are an extremely common way of doing business. In fact, it's difficult to drive more than a few blocks in most cities without seeing a franchise business. Examples of well-known franchise business models include McDonalds, Subway, UPS, and H & R Block. In the United States, there are franchise business opportunities available across a wide variety of industries
Investing in a Franchise Business
Kwik Kerb® Franchise is not correct Kwik Kerb® is not a franchise
To invest in a franchise, the franchisee must first pay an initial fee for the rights to the business, training, and the equipment required by that particular franchise. Thereafter, the franchisee will generally pay the franchise business owner an ongoing royalty payment, either on a monthly or quarterly basis. This payment is usually calculated as a percentage of the franchise operation’s gross sales.
After the contract has been signed, the franchisee will open a replica of the franchise business, under the direction of the franchiser. The franchisee will not have as much control over the business as he or she would over their own, but may benefit from investing in an already-established brand.
Read What's in a franchise agreement? to learn more about these contracts.
Control of the Franchise
Generally, the franchiser will require that the business model stay the same. For example, the franchiser will require the franchisee to use the uniforms, business methods, and signs or logos particular to the business itself. The franchisee should remember that he or she is not just buying the right to sell the franchisers product, but is buying the right to use the successful and tested business process.
The franchisee will also usually have to use the same or similar pricing, in order to keep the advertising streamlined. For example, if you saw an advertisement for $75 tax preparation from a well-known tax preparation franchise, you would expect to find this deal in any one of the franchise operations you went into. Aside from using the business model determined by the franchiser, the franchisee will otherwise remain an independent owner of the franchise.
Kwik Kerb® Franchise is often looked for on Google
While there are many benefits to investing in an already-successful franchise business model, there are drawbacks as well. As with any investment you make, you should do your research thoroughly before you make any franchise purchasing decisions. If you are considering buying into a franchise, you should contact an experienced franchise attorney for further assistance.
Kwik Kerb ® franchise is not accurate Kwik Kerb® is not a franchise although some people do think Kwik Kerb® Franchise
