About Aspray Limited
Aspray is an award-winning property claims management service that helps policyholders when they need to make a claim on their building’s insurance. The property may have been damaged by fire, flood, escape of water, a storm, impact or even subsidence. Aspray manages them all.
Founded in 2005 by managing director James Whittle, Aspray began with one clear vision - to treat policyholders as if they were a member of your own family. Dealing with an insurance claim can be a stressful and challenging situation for many policyholders. Some may struggle with negotiation and understanding the jargon within their policy, others simply may not have the time or live some distance from the property.
Whatever the reason, Aspray’s proven business model and years of industry experience paves the way to providing the customer with an outstanding service and getting their property reinstated as swiftly as possible.
What does working with Aspray involve?
As an Aspray loss assessor, no two days are the same. You could be visiting a new claim in the morning, scoping the damage, reassuring the policyholder, networking over lunch, handing the keys back for a completed reinstatement in the afternoon, then finishing the day negotiating with a loss adjuster and finalising a settlement.
The role of an Aspray loss assessor involves:
• Visiting the policyholder’s property and, once instructed, scoping the damage to compile a schedule of works for submission to the insurer
• Negotiating with the insurer or their appointed representative to gain a fair settlement for the policyholder
• Project managing vetted contractors to complete the reinstatement works as swiftly as possible whilst keeping the customer informed
How does the Aspray franchise model work and what is the cost?
The Aspray franchise can normally be run from your own home, making it a good choice for those looking for a business with minimal operating costs. However, some franchisees choose to move into an office as their operations grow.
Each territory is exclusive and is based on the number of households in the area. Aspray’s recruitment team will be happy to discuss available areas during an initial call.
The franchise purchase fee is £28,000 + VAT. Franchisees who require funding will need to be able to demonstrate to lenders that they have a minimum of £15,000 liquid capital available to contribute to their start-up costs. Aspray has a long-standing relationship with two banks who can lend between 70 to 75 per cent of the total investment amount required for you to start your franchise (subject to status).
What support and training does Aspray offer?
From understanding insurance to scoping properties, building your business and digital marketing to finance and growth, when it comes to training and support, Aspray has you covered.
You will begin the franchise with an induction course at Aspray head office, which provides the foundations of becoming a loss assessor. But it doesn’t stop there.

What is Aspray looking for in its franchisees?

Can I resell an Aspray franchise?
A change in personal circumstances may result in a franchisee needing to sell the remainder of their term. In this case, it is possible to sell to someone who has been approved through the Aspray franchisee recruitment and selection process.
