    My story is that I work fulltime and have been looking at starting a small business that I can run on the side with my partner. I have been looking at options over the past 6 months and landed on Storewall.

    Storewall is a premium garage premium wall-mounted storage system for home and business. We are bringing in a range of wall panels, hooks, baskets, bins, brackets and shelves.

    I built the website myself and am working with the supplier in the US.

    The focus of the business is DIY with direct sales to the public. We will also work with garage solution designers who are interested in our product. The product also works well for retail stores and businesses.

    The biggest challenges I am facing are importing the stock into Australia and the cost of this. Secondly delivery across Australia and (also) the cost of this.

    This is the website I created: http://www.storewall.com.au

    Welcome. Your website looks good.
    You might have a bit of a climb to get your name known against other companies already selling the same system (or at least a very similar one) already here so be prepared for it to take some time, and you might have to try some novel promotion ideas. Good luck.

    Thanks for the welcome, I am keen to read through the forum and learn more about what others are doing to differentiate their business and model.

    Hi Arthur,

    Just a heads-up – check the SSL certificate is doing its job (and all http pages redirected to https) – it hasn’t got the green padlock to show the site’s secure.
    I just had the same issue on my site, and the problem was ‘mixed content’…

    Cheers,
    Elissa

    Thanks for the feedback. At the moment I am using Aust Post for the smaller deliveries and will source a courier(s) for the larger panel deliveries.

    As we mature around the logistics process, these answers will be refined. I had a look at what others are doing in my space and followed them with regards to these answers.

    So in 6 months they might be totally different as I learn more, get feedback and experience issues that need to be resolved.

    Could i suggest that you contact Australia Post and discuss their process’s in regards to damaged good and correct your website now, and not in 6 months time.

    Just because others publish that information it doesn’t mean your couriers have similar process’s, in fact I am not sure many do
