Buy The Bootfitter!
We are suggesting a basic kit to start with. We think that's the best buy for almost everyone. Because the tool is modular you can easily add up on more specific parts later if you need.
* A smart first upgrade would be to add 2 more short heating elements.
What's the price for a basic kit?
* It is 4990 euro excluding shipping and VAT
How do I calculate on the investment?
Let's assume you are charging your customers per punch. The charge is 25 euros (net price) per each punch you do. In average you do one punch per boot = 2 punches per customer (in reality over time you problably will end up with maybe 1,5 punches in avg per boot and customer)
That equals 4990/50 and that's how many pairs you will have to work on before BE on the investment.
The good thing is that you will be more effeicient from boot number one and save a lot of workshop hours immidiately if you want to. You can for example redistrubute more hours from the workshop to more selling hours in the shop and reduce the relative cost of your staff overall.
