Handyman franchise opportunities

The amount the British spend on home improvements has undergone a substantial increase in recent times. The Office of National Statistics has announced that the total has reached £30 billion a year – which is the equivalent of £43 million a week. And this trend looks set to continue.

One survey found that a quarter of homeowners are currently planning a project to improve or repair one or more parts of their property. One reason for this growing interest in keeping homes in good order is the trend to 'improve, not move'. Plus, increased awareness that a well maintained property attracts a better price when you do come to sell up. What homeowners don’t want to do, however, is pay out large labour fees for contractors - hence the rising importance of the handyman.

How to start a handyman business

Undoubtedly, the best route to being your own boss for many people is a franchise. A handyman franchise gives you all the benefits of running your own business in the home improvement and repairs sector, with far fewer headaches - using a fully formed business model from a company achieving success.

Having a franchiser to help you with business management, insurance, compliance and legislation, can be invaluable. You get to keep your clients happy and expand your businesses, without the red tape to trip you up.

Which handyman franchise to choose

The choice is yours. Among the options are ourhandyman, which provides a liveried vehicle to help promote your logo. Other property maintenance franchisers looking for new partners include Hire a Hubby and the Dial a Hubby networks.

You could even find a niche sector to match your interests, such as a Magicman franchise to repair and restore hard surfaces.
