There is one property repair that no homeowner or business can put off – blocked or ineffectual drains. If pipework around a home or commercial venture needs replacing or fixing, it is not something people can usually do themselves. This means there is always a strong need for firms who can provide specialist drainage services, including drainage franchises - especially as the British have a habit of pouring over 18 million litres of fat down their sinks every year.
This all adds to the average £3,579 each British household has to pay out for interior house repairs. With so many customers who need these services, what is the best way to get a new drainage business off the ground?
Taking the step into self-employment and running your own business becomes easier and less stress free if you launch a drainage franchise. Some of the biggest players in this sector are happy to help people with a business start-up in their home area. This includes well known firms MetroRod drain care and repair, and Drain Doctor which services both domestic and commercial premises.
One of the best known names in this sector is Dyno, which focuses on drainage, plumbing and heating, for homes and businesses. There are also franchises available from Flowplant and other, more regional companies.
Carrying the branding of an established firm in the drainage sector provides potential customers with more confidence in your services. But this is not just about marketing support.
A drainage franchise means having help with managing your business, including training and preferential rates for equipment and supplies. The franchiser can also make sure you have quality control systems, proper insurance and comply to industry regulations, as mistakes in this sector can be costly.
