INNOVATION: Introducing the Mobile Paint Lab
THE costs of renovating or painting your home can add up pretty fast if one isn’t careful. Having an architect come out for measuring, driving to the paint store to select your colours and mixtures and then having the paint contractors come around to officially begin the process, can be expensive and time consuming.
There is a sure-fire way of having many of these costs cut out of the picture entirely. The “mobile paint lab” is an idea brought into being by Bredasdorp Paint&Place contractor, Andre Swart.
“The idea was actually thought of by my brother in law years ago”, explains Andre. “It is all built around convenience. Clients that make use of our mobile service do not have to drive out to select their paint. We can mix on site and offer paint products and our services right on the spot.”
The Mobile Paint Lab is a Paint&Place on the go - a free and convenient all-in-one service which cuts out many of the costs involved with renovating your home.
Andre has converted a Volkswagen Caddy into a one-man mobile unit, which he calls his “mobile paint lab”. The lab consists of a drawer system with all the paint and tools needed as well as a manual machine for the mixing.
“I have loaded the Cargo Tint Programme on my laptop which enables me to do all the measuring and mixing required from the car”, says Swart. “I also plan to install a printer so that even invoicing can be done on the spot. The Mobile Paint Lab could really be the next best thing for the industry.”
Andre Swart and his mobile paint lab currently operate roughly within an 80km radius around the Overberg area. The mobile paint lab is an additional, 100% free Paint&Place service that is likely to catch on. It is built around convenience, and all that it takes to make use of the mobile paint lab is to give Andre, or the Bredasdorp Paint&Place, a call.
