, I would like you to know I still can't believe how the business has taken off.
I think I thought about it over night and the next day I called and spoke to Jim Rees
promised the 1-800 number and a manual to build the beds.
Two months later we were informed that is was available and after a barrage of questions to Mr. Rees
, we signed up.
That very day I read the manual and started our business.
I was skeptical with the fact that the manual would be geared for American marketing but as it turns out all the theories behind the marketing applied to Canada as well.
The support team with Jim
, Steve, and, Mary are phenomenal and left nothing unanswered.
Thank you very much Jim Rees
and the Team at 1800Bunkbed
is a CEO like no other I have communicated with before.
Not only does he
have a ton of knowledge and advice on building bunk beds he
knows how to effectively run a business and he
is there for his
Follow the steps in the manual, listen to Jim
when you speak with him on how to advertise and build your beds.
You don't need many tools to start, all I had was a chop saw, screw gun, tape measure and sanding block.
I upgraded my tools with each bed sale and now have a fully functioning wood working shop in my garage.
My best advice to any newcomer is to carefully and completely read the manual and simply call Jim Rees
when you have a question.
Good luck and happy building!!
In September 2008 I called Jim Rees, the founder of 1 800 Bunkbed.
I fired away immediately with several questions that I thought should be answered.

The business just seemed too easy to get into though.
To start a woodworking business with just basic tools, I had never heard of anything like this, and the funny thing was that he
didn't pressure me.
You know the saying "nothing's for free" well this wasn't for free but with such a minimal cost I was skeptical!
I thought about it for several days and every time I had a question I called him.
was, and still is there for me whenever I have questions! (Just like he
would be when I signed on!)
was always able to answer any question that I had and he
continues to be available for advice without fail, usually within the same day.
honest, straightforward answers quickly dispelled all of my concerns.
Not many small start-ups can afford the benefit of protected territory, but Jim
has made it possible and very affordable to have just that.
After talking with Jim Rees, the founder of 1-800-BunkBed, I was convinced this was the opportunity I had been waiting for.
I had been a middle school teacher for 14 years when I got started making bunk beds.
I followed all the plans and techniques provided by Jim Rees
The best part is, the business is mine to run the way I want to, and if I have a question about any part of the business, I can call and talk directly to Jim Rees
to get the answer.
