Following on from our previous blog about the BFRCexclusive offer available to FENSA installers, we wanted to make sure you know about another great initiative that can help your business. Let’s just back track a little, before we tell you about it.
FENSA has been an approved TrustMark Scheme Operator since 2007. This is great news, because it mean, if you want to register for TrustMark, as a FENSA registered business, you automatically qualify (Providing you have traded for 12 months). This is because you were vetted, when you first became FENSA registered, and your installation work is continually inspected by the independent inspections body, BBA. You must also have in place a written policy outlining how you resolve complaints from your customers and if you have more than five employees, you will be required to have in place a health and safety policy.
So pretty straight forward so far.
But what about the TrustMark scheme itself? TrustMark is the government-endorsed scheme to help homeowners find trustworthy and reputable trades’ people. Basically, your future customers will choose a TrustMark-registered business to carry out work on their property, because they want to be confident in the company they are hiring.
The good news is, this means over 350,000 potential customers visit the TrustMark website every month looking for listed firms. So if you’re on the list, they could be looking at you.
Obviously that’s a huge benefit in itself, but there is a long list of others! Here are just a few to whet your appetite!
- Listing on the TrustMark website
- Membership of a scheme that is heavily promoted to homeowners (including on BBC Radio)
- Use of the TrustMark logo
- Free van stickers
- Free homeowner focused promotional materials
Here at FENSA, we know business is tough and you need all the help you can get. We want to help you take advantage of the TrustMark scheme, so FENSA is offering its installers the TrustMark badge at the new reduced price of £100 per year – less than the cost of a local newspaper advert! When looked at like that it is too good an opportunity to miss!
Additional information on this offer can be found on the FENSA website within the installer’s login and via the installers’ email sent out previously.
