What In The World Is A Tumble Bus And What Does It Have To Do With Appraising?

The answer to the second question in the title  is that the Tumble Bus has absolutely nothing to do with real estate appraisal.  The answer to the first question is something I thought I would share with you.  As a real estate a real estate appraiser in Birmingham, AL I get to drive around a lot and I see a lot of interesting things.  I like to share things I see, especially if I think they are kind of unique.

I was doing some appraisal work in Vestavia Hills, AL this week and saw the Tumble Bus.  I had never seen this before and thought it was very unique.  I own a small business so I am interested in other small businesses and how they came up with their ideas to start them and also how people make them successful.  In todays hard econcomic times we have to be creative and think outside the box to find things that can make our business more unique and valuable to our customers.

What could be more unique than a gym on wheels?  Very cool idea to bring the playground to the kids!  I won’t go into more detail but will give you their website if you are interested in reading about it.  It looks like they have been in business for over 25 years.  Why haven’t I heard about this?  Have you ever used the Tumble Bus?  What did you think?

  1. It’s always great to hear about local businesses, Tom. I have to admit though I was kind of hoping you were going to say this was your new appraisal mobile. 🙂

    • Ryan, I love finding out about different types of businesses and how they are succuessful. I guess I could use the Tumble Bus, and in between inspections get some excercise.
