About Concept Building Solutions
Concept Building Solutions is a national company specialising in insurance claims management and building and property repairs. It handles thousands of claims every year, from flood damage to major fire loss, and has a franchise network of over 160 territories.
Trading since 2001, Concept Building Solutions began franchising in 2003, following the success of an extensive pilot scheme and has since gone on to become the largest network of insurance claims managers and building repair specialists in the UK.
Due to its continued success in acquiring new business, Concept Building Solutions is currently recruiting professional, focused partners to join the network.
How does the Concept Building Solutions franchise model work?
This company’s franchisee help individuals and businesses restore their homes and premises to their former glory after disaster strikes.
Franchisees project manage all works from start to finish, assessing property damage and then preparing a work schedule and quotation. They then negotiate and settle the claim with the policy holder’s insurance company or loss adjustor. Concept claims managers typically use a local contractor to carry out property repair works.
Franchisees source work in a variety of ways, which range from using direct advertising and utilising referral schemes with trade networks, to contractual arrangements with insurance brokers, property agents and loss assessors.
All franchisees trade from a dedicated territory exclusive to them for all directly advertised work. After an in-depth training course, franchisees are ready to hit the ground running from day one.
What locations or territories is Concept Building Solutions looking to operate in?
Concept Building Solutions has a number of franchise territories available around the UK and Ireland and is currently seeking motivated individuals from any background to start their own project management businesses.
Why is a Concept Building Solutions franchise a good investment?
This franchise would be an attractive proposition for investors looking to create a profitable business in the insurance claims and restoration sector.
A national and respected brand, Concept Building Solutions operates in one of the most recession-proof industries in the UK and has many years of franchising success under its belt.
The business model allows franchisees to work flexible hours and has the potential to return high-profit margins. Concept Building Solutions says some of its franchisees have achieved six-figure incomes with no prior building or insurance experience.
According to the company, finding new business isn’t difficult - because the service is free to customers, word of mouth recommendations are common.
Andy Walmsley, group operations director for Concept Building Solutions, says: “We look to recruit franchisees for the long term and as we assist them in creating a successful business we reap the benefits.
“Many franchisors look to generate the majority of their income from franchise sales, but we have a longer term, more sustainable approach that benefits both sides in the partnership.”
