So its been a little while since I last wrote in here and I really intended to keep up my blogging so heres an update.
The last few weeks we have been really , really busy working for some insurance loss assessors and I have to admit the work has been welcome because we all need money right ?
The 2 companies that we have been working for found us via our website and thats just great for us knowing that our marketing is automated like that because personally I have always found it hard selling to people so the fact that they already want to use us is great for me.
These companies are in the insurance management business and they get to visit properties when they are at their worst to help the owners with their insurance claims and that is where we come in. The first one to contact us was Bell Green and the job was a house that had a flood when the pipes under the bath started to leak . It was aright mess and a great bit of work for us ! These guys saw the website and called through to us to go and take a look and give a quote and said that they would pick from one of three quotes of which ours was one and guess what ? We won our first contract with these guys and it looks like we will get a lot more in the future !
Happy days for us . The job was to replace the flooring in the bathroom and pull down the ceiling and replace that as well , there was also damage to the wooden floor below in the kitchen which was a nice oak floor and we have had af air bit of experience with these types of flooring so it was an easy job for us and working to a price was good as there was no messing about with the customer and as the insurance company were paying for the work everyone was happy. We also got paid on time once the job had been passed off which was nice .
After these guys had used our company we got a call from some of their colleagues who were insurance loss assessors in Burnley which was a bit further out for us but we didn’t mind as we had just got a new diesel van and it was great on fuel.
So the house we went to over there was a right mess and it looked like it had been a mess even before we got there , it was a rented property and like a lot of them it hadn’t been looked after in years by the look of it and we had to work in awful conditions but a jobs a job so we cracked on . This time the door had come of its hinges in the high winds we have been having and the frame was rotten right through so we priced it up for a replacement upvc door and went over to Burnley and replace the whole thing . The tenant was well happy bless her , she was a little old dear about 70 years old and she was so appreciative and kept bringing us brews in these chipped old mugs and giving us those horrible Garibaldi biscuits that my Grandma used to love .
Took a bit longer to get paid this time which was a pain but at least we know for future reference and who knows if another of these loss assessors comes out of the woods with work for us we will be rushed off our feet…Happy days !
