START A METAL DETECTING SERVICE
What's it all about?
This is a slightly unusual but nonetheless very lucrative side business to start. According to national statistics, 1 in 5 married people lose their wedding ring at least once in their lives. And the majority of the time, it is at the beach, swimming or out in the great outdoors.
Picture the scene. Mr Smith was attending a friends garden party on a Saturday Afternoon. Upon leaving, he realised his wedding ring must have slipped off. During the afternoon, he'd been playing rounders and also took a walk around the lake of the large grounds. How on earth was he to find his ring? This is where you come in. You charge a fee for attending the location to search for the ring using your metal detector. Or, you can simply rent out your metal detector to Mr Smith for a flat daily rate.
You can pick up a more than adequate metal detector for under £100 on Amazon capable of doing the job.
