One of the most profitable small businesses to start up is parking lot striping. You can specialize in one type of parking lot, such as a corporate park, or any parking lot. This can be a lucrative niche business, as there is an ongoing demand for these services.


A profitable parking lot striping business can be started with little capital. There is no need to rent an office space, and you can operate your business from home if you want to. But, before you jump in head first, it is important to invest your money wisely. You can start with low capital and grow your business by making the right investment decisions. You also need to know the market demand for your services so that you can invest wisely.

A parking lot striping business can be run as a sole proprietorship or as a partnership. Depending on your area, you can earn anywhere from $50 to $60 per hour. The amount you can charge per parking lot will also depend on the market. The cost of materials can vary, but you can expect to make a profit every month.

If you plan on making money from this kind of work, it's imperative that you market your business in a unique way. Think of a variety of ideas that will help you find customers and generate cash. Some of these ideas include cold calling, having an Internet presence, and free and paid advertising. In addition, you will need to learn the proper order of painting and have appropriate equipment to move the equipment.

You should start with a small client and build from there. This way, you will get a sense of the market and grow your business over time. You can start with a small client, and over time, you can add more customers as word-of-mouth and good publicity spread.


While a parking lot striping business can be a lucrative venture, it is also an arduous task to choose the best form of business structure. There are a number of different structures, including limited liability companies and sole proprietorships. Sole proprietorships are usually easier to set up, but limited liability companies can be advantageous for tax reasons. Choosing the right structure for your business depends on your personal preferences and tax considerations. After you have decided to form a business, you must choose a unique name. Make sure to avoid using a business name that is too long or too similar to other existing businesses.

Once you have determined the type of striping service you want to offer, you must decide if you'll be starting with one striping unit or multiple. If you plan on doing larger jobs, you'll need more employees. Increasing your number of employees can help you handle larger jobs faster.

You must also apply for a tax ID number when you start your business. This number is essential for filing monthly and quarterly returns. If you're operating under a Sub S corporation, you'll also need a Federal Employee Identification Number (FEIN). This is basically your business's social security number. It's easy to get, and you'll need it when you hire employees.

A parking lot can be a stressful place, especially when it's busy. Proper planning will make your parking lot easy to navigate and prevent fender-benders. A well-planned layout can also make the experience of customers a whole lot easier.

If you're planning to start a parking lot striping business, there are a few things you should know before you get started. For example, you'll need to consider the seasonality of the area. A warmer climate will likely bring in a steady stream of business all year long, while colder climates won't be as profitable.

Lastly, you'll need to decide on the frequency of striping. The frequency of striping varies from company to company, and some companies redo their parking lots every year, while others stripe every three years. Either way, striping the lot can help businesses thrive.
