Everything comes down to marketing. You are married because you market to your mate enough to be married. Your kids don't hate you because you market to them just enough that they don't hate you. The big Secret is to learn marketing, and you can plug in what ever you like, and it will succeed. Towing a trailer with signs behind your bike is different enough that it will get noticed!
One piece of advice is to make your service FREE. All you have to do is run down what you do, which is e-cycling and tell them that you will pick up all the items that they have for free. There are some large companies that provide this kind of service but they are charging for the service and making it free is far more attractive.
You do not have to have a compressor, some people prefer to use a CO2 bottle, but that seems somewhat expensive. Some of the discount tool companies (like Harbor Freight) stock inexpensive compressors. Probably the most import thing to a good finish is good surface preparation. In other words a good clean. Smooth surface. As I have gotten older I have developed a tendency to prime the surface and after that dries well to sand it with very fine grit paper. Try 3200, 2500, in that range.
These units are simple in design as they consist of a 12 volt gel cell battery plus a couple of heavy duty 400 amp cables and rubber insulated clamps. These are extremely useful items as the batteries they have are powerful enough with its 400 amps to actually jump start a vehicle when its starting battery is totally dead. Its peek power rating is approximately 900 Amps. There is AC adapter which comes with it for charging the boost battery as well as a 12 volt cord for charging it from your car as you drive.
Casting about for something more robust than a hunk of plywood and some adjustable clamps, I found there are a number of folding workbenches on the market from manufacturers like Worx, Black and Decker, and sold at places like Home Depot, Lowes, and Harbor Freight. Their prices are varied, but they all have similar features. I especially like benches that fold flat, are easily stored, have built-in adjustable "vises", and can carry moderate loads.
Second, "Time", I try to give myself all the time I need so as not to be rushed. This is extremely important. If you don't have enough time you will surely loose your focus, break a smooth routine and end with a bike half done. No doubt with an attitude that you wasted a great deal of time and you know your right you should have just jumped on that puppy and took off. Give yourself all the time you need and your whole world will turn easier. And when you do clean it your "good attitude" will go the distance. When you're done all that work will leave you with a sense that it wasn't so hard to do and doing it again won't be so bad. And don't forget to take breaks frequently, drink a little work a little, drink a little work a little you'll be amazed how quickly you get finished and how much better you'll feel.
