Companies that sell mobile home equipment and parts hire salesmen and delivery drivers. Some sell accessories entirely online.
Some specialize in particular areas, such as plumbing or replacement doors. Others sell everything from bath tubs to shutters. Tool kits are commonly sold, especially to owners of campers and trailers that can actually be hitched up and moved. As mobile home owners often have landscaped gardens, some companies may sell gardening equipment, although this is more likely to be purchased separately.
Home performance contractors often work on mobile homes. They improve insulation and seal windows, and sell accessories intended to lower utility bills and improve overall energy efficiency. Other contractors are involved in general maintenance, although most is done by the homeowner.
The sale of used mobile homes can mean their removal to a new location, which requires heavy equipment. Units may also need repair after being damaged by weather. They may also need to be restored after a period of neglect. Modular homes, in fact, need many of the same kind of repairs and maintenance as houses.
Tools for maintenance and basic repair are generally sold to homeowners by specialist stores or hardware stores. Many simple problems can easily be fixed in a DIY manner. Wholesalers sell parts and accessories at a discount to stores and the general public.
Sales skills are similar to those required in hardware and home improvement stores. Contractors work in a similar manner to most home contractors. In most cases, workers are in direct contact with the end user, although wholesalers may work through various middlemen. Discount stores may also sell equipment for mobile homes.
