FAQ

Is 1800BunkBed a Scam?

Absolutely not! We are entering our 3rd decade in business. As owner of 1-800-BunkBed I am the only person in my company who speaks to new people thinking about joining our program. I say the same thing to all the people who contact us and I answer all questions the same way. If we were a scam, and I was the only person speaking to new people telling them lies, wouldn’t there be hundreds of complaints from the people who joined 1800bunkbed? Of course there would. The fact is there is not one complaint from any individual who has been associated with 1-800-BunkBed. That is because what we tell them is the truth.

What Degree of Skill Does it Require to Make Your Bunk Beds?

If you have done any type of carpentry (even just rough framing) you should have no trouble making these bunk beds. I had never made a piece of furniture before and within 1 week I was making and selling my bunk beds. I would even go as far as to say that even if you have had no woodworking experience you should be able to master our business.

What is a Protected Territory?

When you purchase our business opportunity you choose an area that only you will be allowed to operate in. This is your protected territory. It is made up of counties. When someone calls 1-800-Bunkbed from your protected county the calls are routed to your phone at your location.

How Large Should my Protected Territory Be?

Some of the factors you should consider in deciding the size of your territory are:

  • Are you going to work this business full or part-time?
  • Are you going to have employees?
  • How large do you anticipate growing this business?

If you are going to work this business part time with no employees then 1 territory should suffice. This will give you approximately a 100,000 population to draw from. If you are thinking of doing this full time, with employees and expansion possibilities then you should be looking to have multiple territories.

How Can More Than 1 Business Use the Same Phone Number (1-800-Bunkbed)?

Until very recently you couldn’t. 1-800-Bunkbed has contracted with a highly specialized telecommunication company that is able to route calls coming into 1-800-Bunkbed to exact locations. This can be done by State, county, zip code or even street address. We have decided the best approach was to divide up the protected territories by counties. All this boils down to is the fact that when your customers call 1-800-Bunkbed from within your protected territory those calls will ring at your location on your phone.

What Kind of Woodworking Tools Will I Need?

When I started this business the only tools I had were:

  • A circular saw
  • A hand drill
  • A palm sander

I probably made my first 100 or so beds with just those tools mentioned above. As I made more money I obviously bought additional tools. But, just to get started, those were the only tools I had. There is a section in the manual that goes over all the tools you should have to run a production shop.

How Much Space is Needed to Run This Business?

My first “shop” consisted of an 80 square foot plastic tent that was attached to the apartment I was living in at the time. The “shop” had a work table in the middle with just enough room for me to walk around it. Oh, and the “shop” was unheated which is not pleasant when you live in New England during the winter. Even though it was a pain in the butt, I worked in this small area for about the first year. I would recommend that you have at least 200 square feet to start. You can successfully run this business from a garage, basement, spare room or from an existing business that has some extra space it would be willing to rent to you.

Do the Beds Have to be Delivered?

The short answer is no. If you don’t have the time or inclination to bother with delivery, the finished beds can be picked up at your shop by the customer as long as they have a mini-van, truck or station wagon. BUT, think about delivery this way. How would you like to have a new truck or van? What is a new truck’s monthly cost? I’m talking about a nice truck. Probably $300-$400.If you charge $100 for delivery and set up (this should be your minimum charge) it would only take 3-4 sales per month to pay for that truck. That’s how I worked it and I always had 2 new trucks in the driveway!
