The dealer program is designed for existing welding shops that want to add a new business division to their current operations. This is for welding shop owners with an interest in a scalable business system that they can easily train employees to execute. This program can be implemented immediately using your existing shop, tools, and employees.

  • A scalable and predictable product in terms of profitability and labor spent – Unlike custom jobs that often get underbid and drag on for unforseen amounts of time, this product is predictable down to the cent in terms of profit made and time spent.
  • A business division that doesn’t require babysitting – with an idiot-proof process of detailed documentation of every step of marketing, sales, and flatbed production, this is something you can delegate to employees so you can focus on growth and management of your business. 
  • A turn key lineup of flatbeds without having to re-invent the wheel – we’ve spent thousands of hours and made dozens of mistakes so you don’t have to. All blueprints, cut files, and marketing systems have been fine tuned to create a seamless process, every time. 

One time, up front licensing fee – $5,000

Monthly renewal fee – $60/mo. – includes as needed check-in/coaching call and running marketing campaigns.

Minimum Monthly Ad Spend – $300/mo.

No product royalties.

Your ROI Calculation: The payback period of this program is very simple: you will make north of $2,000 profit per flatbed sold (verify with the excel sheet), and it costs $5,000 to get licensed. If you’re selling the minimum 6 beds per year, that means selling 1 bed every two months meaning it should take you a maximum of 4 months to make your money back in PROFIT. There are very few shop tools you can invest in that will return your capital at this fast of rate.

Each dealer gets a unique login to our dealer platform – the all in one platform with everything you’ll need to build and sell flatbeds. This includes the video tutorial, blueprints for all models (PDF downloads), cut files for all base parts and add-ons pre-nested on 4 x 8 areas (.DXF files), and all of our business and support tools. 

Our video tutorial is completely exhaustive. At over 5 hours long with 28 modules, it’s a step by step explanation of how to build, wire, and install your flatbed with no detail left out. This makes a useful training tool for employees, and will only be needed for the first couple units, after that the process simply repeats itself regardless of model using the same process and jigs. Here’s a breakdown of each module and what it covers:

  • Module 1: Tools and equipment needed.

1995-2023 Toyota Tacoma

  • 6 ft bed
  • 5 ft bed

Fabrication: 10 hours (base model) – 20 hours (high end model)

Wiring: 3-4 hours

Installation: 6-10 hours. 

Total: 20-35 hours/bed. 

Translation: If you have one guy dedicated to building and installing beds full time, you’ll be able to produce about 4-5 beds a month. 2 full time guys would be 9-10 beds a month, etc. 

Minimum bed quota – must sell a minimum of 6 flatbeds per year to remain the program.

Required to purchase lights and mudflaps from HQ on a per unit basis – every unit sold must use the provided lighting packages and branded mudflaps sold by our HQ location. This is also a tracking measure for HQ of the units sold per year. Lights and mudflaps will be available to purchase off the dealer platform. 

Customization Allowance – the base model flatbed must be built exactly as the blueprints and video tutorial intend. After the base model is built, any and all customization is permitted that acts as an add-ono the base model. This includes but is not limited to: toolboxes, fenders, bed rails, lumber racks, custom mounting systems, etc. 

No selling flatbeds in weld-yourself format – you are only permitted to sell the fully built product. Under no circumstances are you allowed to sell the product in weld-yourself format. A second party such as the customer or a car dealer can install the finished product, but the product must be fully assembled before leaving your shop. 

Customer Satisfaction and product quality – we expect our dealers to provide top notch craftsmanship and service, if you don’t you will be removed from the program. This is enforced through customer complaints and photo verification of builds.

If you’re interested in becoming a dealer, you’ll need to schedule a phone interview with one of us so we can see if both of us are a good fit from the program. 

Once you’ve scheduled your interview (link below), the most important piece of homework you can do is to fill out the Flatbed Excel Sheet. This will generate your selling prices and profit margins to determine if you can sell flatbeds at a price that your local market will tolerate. It’s also a good idea to look over the rest of the due diligence material above.
