Keeping Your Business Going During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Keeping Your Business Going During the COVID-19 Pandemic

It feels only right to address the elephant in the room and that is COVID-19. Last month we discussed the disruption some businesses were experiencing getting rental equipment due to the Coronavirus, but little did we know what just a few short weeks would bring to our industry nor could we have imagined the huge economic impact it has had and will continue to have on all industries. “Social distancing” has become the new buzzword when talking about any sort of gathering. Nearly all events have been canceled or postponed including weddings and big events. An article published by CNN Business stated that “the going assumption among planners and vendors…is that all weddings otherwise scheduled to take place in the next 60 days are going to be postponed.” For any business 60 days without income is tough, but the problem is that it is just a guestimate on how long it will take to get back to some sort of normalcy. That timeline is fluid and the daily news of the coronavirus and new findings reflects that very fluidity. So how exactly is a small business supposed to make it in such uncertain times? The unfortunate fact of the matter is that some simply won’t be able to overcome it.

Can Your Rental Business Survive the Coronavirus?

Can Your Rental Business Survive the Coronavirus?

Special Events posted an article around the end of February talking about how the event rental industry is suffering supply headaches due to Coronavirus. You can check out the full article here, but to summarize it stated that the rental industry is facing the challenge of “the breakdown of the supply chain from manufacturing powerhouse China.” In order to control the virus, China’s government has shut down factories in many areas. Although the government ordered the factories to reopen by February 10, many have not done so. This has suddenly become a big problem for rental companies that source all their chairs, tables and other rental items from China. Experts predict the recovery time for China to return to its normal production level is 18 months, that is, of course, 18 months from the time things get back to “normal”.  One way to solve this problem affecting the rental business is to purchase products from other countries. One such company is McCourt Manufacturing located in the United States.
