The Screenmobile Story

The Walkers had an idea about Mobile Screen Repair. The rest is history.

Founded in 1980 by Monty M. “Pops” Walker and his two sons, Scott and Monty L. Walker.

They quickly realized there was a massive opportunity for an industry-leading mobile screen repair and installation business. Repairing and installing screens using a wooden tent trailer, based out of the family garage, they would be on the road, repairing, customizing and installing a variety of screens.

Pops’ wife Sharleen managed the Screenmobile office out of the spare bedroom - answering phones, booking jobs, managing schedules, and handling the finances. A one-woman support team!

With a reputation for quality, professionalism and mobility.

The Walkers expanded operations to Palm Springs in 1981, discovering that they were the only business to screen on-site, allowing for an efficient and timely service that wasn’t replicated elsewhere.

Realizing how vital the trailer was to their ability to be truly mobile, they upgraded to larger, all-metal trailer, branded with the Screenmobile name. This trailer allowed Pops and his sons to repair any size screen and hold all their equipment, while serving as an approachable and effective mobile marketing tool.

The Walkers saw a significant increase in job requests from people approaching the trailer while the family was screening. These early successes laid the foundation for Screenmobile to become a nationally-known brand with an outstanding reputation, as well as a 100% Franchise Owner satisfaction rate. We think Pops would be proud!

Our Process

How It Works

If you have no previous experience with the Screenmobile brand as a customer, you may be wondering how our one-of-a-kind window screening service works on a daily basis. Here’s our process, at a glance:
Image
  • 1
    Customer calls and sets an appointment.
  • 2
    Franchise Owner and/or Field Technician arrive on time on the designated appointment date, assess the scope of work to be done, and provide the customer with a free estimate.
  • 3
    Customer accepts estimate; Franchise Owner and/or Field Technician get to work measuring, manufacturing, and installing screens onsite, thanks to their mobile trailer!
  • 4

    Work is typically completed in one visit; Franchise Owner presents a service invoice to the satisfied customer and collects payment in the same day.

    Franchise Owners only pay for the materials they use when it’s time to order new stock, so you never have to worry about high costs of operating a Screenmobile during slower business times. Low overhead costs that yield high potential returns on investment – that’s the Screenmobile difference.

Screenmobile gives their home improvement franchise owners the tools, supplies, and knowledge to satisfy any requirement and leave the customer happy and satisfied.

Why Customers Prefer Us

More Than Screens

In addition to screens for windows and doors, we also manufacture and install a variety of products such as solar shading, pet-resistant screens, motorized and large format screens, and more. This allows Franchise Owners to provide customers with just what they’re looking for, while increasing their potential for high returns.

Efficiency & Accuracy

There’s no such thing as a standard-size window screen: almost all screens need to be custom-made and installed correctly in order to perform well. We efficiently measure and manufacture custom screens on-site, so we can avoid the pitfalls other screen repair businesses face, like returning a screen to a workshop or warehouse if it doesn’t fit. Our trailer model allows Franchise Owners to manufacture even the most hard-to-fit screens and make adjustments on-site, so it fits just right.

On-Site Service

Unlike other window repair franchise opportunities our on-site process eliminates the need for a “two-trip sale.” Our trailers are always fully stocked with the necessary materials and tools to complete a job on-site at the first appointment. This feature not only saves Franchise Owners time and money, but also adds value for busy customers who don’t have time for two separate appointments.
