How much do i need to start a Coat business?

Need some extra cash? Or maybe you are thinking of starting your own business but are unsure what to do or how much capital you would need?


Here at The Overcoat Importer, we have the perfect solution for you! By buying a bale of coats from us, you can start your very own business from as little as R 1790! For example, you could buy a 20kg bale of adult anoraks for only R1790 or a 25kg bale for R1990. This means that you can start your own successful business by investing less than R2000!


Each of our bales is packed with high quality gently worn, AAA grade coats that have been imported directly from Europe. All our coats are very stylish, warm, and highly sought after, especially during the colder winter months.


So, how does the Coat business actually work and how do I know if I will be successful?


Well, all you need to do in order to start your business is to visit us at one of our stores in Gauteng. We have stores in Springs, Kempton Park and Benoni which are all very close to the main transport routes, we also have parking if you arrive by car.

In our stores, you will be greeted by one of our friendly salespeople who can help you to buy the perfect bale of coats. After that, you are ready to go and your new business has started!


Many of our customers sell their jackets to people they know. For example, neighbors, friends, family, and people they know in the community.


When you think about the cost price of each jacket, you will understand that your mark-up can be good and you can still have a selling price that is still very attractive for your buyers.


Once you have sold all your jackets, you can take the money you made back with your new profit and you will then be ready to buy your next bale of jackets or coats and do the process again. There is a need for winter coats in SA and if you find a market you can sell coats to, you will soon be making that extra cash you wanted.
