Vehicle owners want absolute certainty that their vehicle will take them from point A to point B safely and one way to ensure safety is driving with functional brakes.

But as important it is to drive with sound brakes, they often don't make time to have their brakes skimmed.

And when they make time, having to wait for their vehicle is about as enjoyable as drinking vinegar and Coke.

Throw in the mandatory social distancing and there's even less reason for people to leave their homes to get their brakes done.

That's why we offer you the opportunity to skim vehicle brakes where the client is.

We call it Business on a Bakkie.

Business on a Bakkie is a fantastic way to quickly start making money by targeting one of the biggest pain points vehicle owners have: driving a vehicle with safe brakes without the hassle of having to actually do something to keep their brakes safe.

Business on a Bakkie gives you ALL the tools you need immediately, so you can leave our shop and start earning. In this day and age you can't ask for a better opportunity.

And because it naturally fits perfectly with social distancing, this is a one-of-a-kind business opportunity.

Why's that?

Well, you don't need to go near the client. You can skim their vehicle's brakes in their driveway while they're comfortably sitting inside.

What you get

Your Business on a Bakkie comes with an on-car brake disk skimmer.

Here's more info and some pics...

Brake lathe

The brake disk skimmer, AKA brake lathe, is a money making machine available in two models: on-car and combination.

Choose the one that'll work best for you.

Wouldn't you agree that making money (legally) can hardly be easier in this day and age?
