Our testimonials

Joining Your Plumber means joining a network of likeminded franchisees who are there for support.

Read what some of our partners have to say about life as Your Plumber franchisees and their journeys so far.

Stuart Randall, Ashford

The Your Plumber structure is excellent. You know what you need to do, when you need to do it and told very clearly how to do it. We liked the fact that the set up was focused on a long-term relationship.

We've never been in a position where we've been too worried about there not being enough business. It's always busy and there's no way we would have reached the level of turnover if we'd been on our own, not even half of it.

I think the progress our business has made is absolute proof that it's the right strategy.

Gary Tabor, Trowbridge

After spending 26 years in the military we spent an awfully long time looking and researching and to our minds Your Plumber is without doubt the most professional plumbing franchise out there.

We're usually booked up quite a few weeks in advance. Life is very busy but very rewarding and it's brilliant to work for ourselves.

Kevin Moore, Canvey Island

I was looking for a franchise to be involved with as a proven model would offer a better chance of success than starting a business on my own.

I came across Your Plumber which, after looking at many franchises, has all the attributes I believe in with customer service and how to treat the consumer. The model is as a well thought out professional concern.

Your questions

Find answers below to some of our most common questions.

There is so much more to tell you about a Your Plumber franchise. To receive further information and to ask any other questions you have, fill in an enquiry form or call us.

Your Questions Answered:

Do I have to be a plumber?

No, prior plumbing experience is not essential. If you do not have a background in plumbing and heating then you can manage a Your Plumber franchise under our Management Programme. This involves managing the day to day operation of the business, handling customer enquiries, scheduling appointments, estimating, marketing and managing the staff.

Our Management Programme is also suitable for people who do have prior plumbing experience but have reached the stage where they don’t want to be on the tools anymore and want to oversee the running of the business.

For plumbers who are just starting out and aren’t ready to employ staff, our Enterprise Programme is an ideal way to start your own business with excellent growth prospects to develop into a multi-van business.

How do I get started?

Start by filling in the enquiry form at the bottom of the page to see if your area is available. We’ll get right back to you to let you know and to provide you with an information pack.

The next step after that will be to come along to one of our informal discovery days to get a complete insight into the Your Plumber business, to meet the support team and to find out what's involved.

What training is provided?

Our comprehensive training programme assumes nothing and teaches you everything you need to know about running a Your Plumber franchise. We train you in sales, marketing, customer care and how to use our unique management program.

For people entering the Management Programme, further training is provided in hiring staff, financial management and accounting.

We guarantee that you’ll walk out of any of our training programmes feeling confident and equipped for the challenge ahead.

How do I get customers?

One of the biggest challenges for businesses is how and where to find new customers. One of the advantages in partnering with Your Plumber is that there is a proven marketing system in place to help find a steady flow of new business.

Our franchisees benefit from a broad range of promotional and marketing activity that ensures our services are advertised to potential clients consistently both online and offline. Leafleting campaigns, search engine advertising, newspaper ads, social media and email marketing make up just some of the ways that we promote our services.
