About All Trades Network

The All Trades Network franchise is a building repair network that services insurers and loss adjustors in the UK, as well as offering domestic homeowners and commercial property owners a comprehensive reinstatement service.

From initial validation of domestic insurance claims to undertaking surveys, costing and scheduling the repairs required, the services offered range from decorating to home improvement, to restoration from disasters and damage and even complete makeovers.

All Trades Network began franchising in 2005 and currently has more than 30 regional offices offering clients nationwide coverage for building reinstatement requirements. All Trades Network is a private limited company founded in 2004 by Clifford Whitehead, a building repair and property specialist with decades of experience. The company became a subsidiary of Eldion Holdings in 2016. It is a full member of the British Franchise Association.

How does the All Trades Network franchise model work?

This franchise provides a complete building repair service to the insurance industry and property owners and as such offers the opportunity to be part of a multi-billion
pound industry.

All Trades Network franchisees are responsible for managing their businesses and team of tradespeople, as well as ensuring customers receive a first-class service from the time they make an insurance claim right the way through to when all repairs are completed to their satisfaction. 

They will have access to plasterers, electricians, plumbers, builders, heating and gas engineers and decorators. Being a contracts manager is a varied and challenging role
because from the initial survey and costing through to the management of a team of tradespeople and the completion of works, the expectations of policyholders are high.

The aim is to ensure minimal stress and disruption for property owners.

Franchisees oversee a variety of projects, ranging from a water leak to a major flood, and as well as servicing corporate clients will aim to win local contracts within the
property sector.

The All Trades Network senior management team has more than 80 years’ combined experience of providing building repair services to insurance companies and the property industry. The company is looking for individuals who have the skills and determination to build their own property repair business.

 

What locations or territories is All Trades Network looking to operate in?

All Trades Network is actively recruiting new franchisees around the UK, with a number of prime territories still available nationwide.

 

What skills do I need to become a successful All Trades Network franchisee?

Some background in finance and property is desirable, but not essential. The company says prospective franchisees should possess good business skills, good communications skills and the ability to manage a range of clients.

 

Why is All Trades Network a good investment?

The property repair industry is worth an estimated £1 billion per year and franchisees will benefit from a stable and recession-free sector. The property market is proven to
do well despite the threat of recession, as more people opt to renovate than move out in hard times.  

The brand has strong nationwide recognition and key selling points include the workmanship and reliability of the professionals operating in the network. All Trades Network specialists are friendly and professional, applying a proven methodology to find the perfect service that matches customers’ needs.

 

Where in the UK is the franchise based?

All Trades Network’s head office and central support team are based in Blackburn, Lancashire. The company handles all its national clients from here.

 

What support and training do All Trades Network franchisees receive?

Franchisees benefit from full training, business development support, a growing portfolio of national accounts work and full system training.

Although training is bespoke, a typical programme consists of five days at the company’s Blackburn head office. Training is designed to give franchisees a comprehensive understanding of the insurance reinstatement sector and each franchisee will be trained individually, based on their prior background and experience in the industry.

This is followed by a five-day mock run of the business, after which an assessment will be made. If the franchisee is deemed ready to launch, they can begin trading immediately. If not, supplementary lessons are given, ensuring franchisees new to the sector are ready to hit the ground running. Infield instruction is given in surveying,
scoping and project scheduling.

Support is provided in business building, marketing, finance and IT. Franchisees also have access to bespoke software tools designed to streamline the running of the business.
  

How in demand are building repair services right now?

According to recent reports, the insurance industry shells out £74 million per working day. Nearly 800 insurance companies are authorised by the Financial Services Authority to supply property insurance in the UK and the total net premiums of property insurance amount to an average of £8 billion, so the potential for high earnings in this sector are obvious.
