Tricks of the dismantling business

In order to consistently win tenders and have a profit, rather than losses, it is important to be able to correctly assess the scope of work.

A qualified engineer must be able to conduct a preliminary assessment of the facility, and the company’s commercial director must be able to have information about the capabilities of competitors, be able to convince and lure customers.

Despite the attractiveness and relative simplicity of this business (nevertheless, breaking it down - not building it), experts advise starting a business when the pace of construction returns to the pre-crisis level.

After all, before you build something, you need to break something. And if nobody builds, then there’s no reason to break it.
