For All Businesses…

 

Businesses generally need a strong focus on Workplace Health and Safety and prompt response times. Because along with being able to work safely around others, while causing minimal disruption, this is usually what matters most in a working business environment.

There can be times where full PPE and Hi-Vis work wear is required too. And that’s not a problem with me.

It is also my responsibility when working within other businesses, to ensure that any work undertaken is completed as quickly and safely as possible for the clients and their workers too.

That means:

  • Having all the right materials at hand before starting.
  • Cordoning off specific areas while the work is completed.
  • Not leaving ‘live’ power tools unattended.
  • Not leaving trailing cables (power leads).
  • Adopting the right safety protocols when working at height or in confined spaces.
  • Leaving the work space clean and tidy when finishing up.

For most businesses, once initial contact has been established. It is standard practice for a work order to be placed through to me via email.

I will then contact the business to arrange a start time for the job. And I’ll discuss any prior requirements to be met. If need be, I will also arrange for an initial site visit to ascertain what materials may be needed.

Then, once a start time has been set. You will get my undivided attention right up to the job’s completion.

All billing will subsequently conducted via email.

Case History – JaniKing Australia

Sometimes in business it’s not what you know, it’s who you know…

 

Not long after arriving in Australia, I met with a chap while subbing for a cleaner operating a JaniKing office cleaning franchise. His name was Wayne Perkinson and he asked me what I used to do while I was back in England.

I told him I was a full on builder there, specialising in luxury fitted kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms’ But was unable to carry this on in Ozzieland without various costly licences in order to legally ply my trade.

It was Wayne’s suggestion that in the short term, without the need for any licenses, I should trade as a handyman. And putting his money where his mouth was, he quickly enlisted my services to help service some of his JaniKing clients.

Among many others, these businesses would include Optus, Methven and more recently Tradelink.

And nearly five years on now, JaniKing (and Wayne) have become one of my 10 biggest customers.

This was me personally thanking Wayne for helping me settle into the Australian way of life. And perhaps more importantly on a business level, for $25,000 in closed business between us.

I travelled down to JaniKing‘s regional office at Kenmore and presented the above in appreciation for all that these guys have done.

For Property Managers…

 

The key here would be in dealing with tenants and having the ability to tackle a wide array of different repairs all at once.

With property management, everything needs to be done via prior arrangement with a property’s tenant. This means having an emphasis on communication. In order to carry out any repairs, appointments usually have to be set with the tenant first.

In order to do this, I will:

  • Attempt to call the tenant on any numbers provided (up to three times).
  • Leave voice mail messages.
  • Leave a text message in final hope of a reply.

And if all this fails (which is often the case), I will return to the property manager in order to have a 24 hour notice of access placed and collect keys. For smaller works, this usually only gives me a 2 hour window of opportunity to get in, get the job done and get out again.

Although working for the property manager, I also have to bear in mind the best interests of the property owner. This means minimising costs wherever possible and trade offs in materials offering the best value for money rather than price.

On the occasions when I do get to meet the tenant, I will also have them sign the job off for me. Stating that the work has satisfactorily been addressed and completed.

Again for this kind of work, once initial contact has been established with a property manager, it becomes standard practice for a work order to be placed through to us via email to enable the job to go ahead.

And upon successful completion of the works, as with all businesses, billing is subsequently conducted via email.

Case History – Cube Home Loans

Scott and Jo Beattie at Cube Home Loans are mortgage brokers and were two of the very first people I met in Australia. They were good friends of my wife before I arrived in Oz. And during the five years I have known them, they have helped us (me and the much better half) purchase our first home together and even finance the company vehicle through their product lines.

Scott was also the guy who first introduced me to the power of Business Networking through BNI. And working with other businesses like this has significantly helped raise my chances of running a healthy business myself.

And because home owners make up for a great percentage of my business, in our short time of knowing each other, he has referred both directly and through his own client base, over $10.000 in closed business for me.

A huge thanks to Scott and Jo. You guys are awesome.

And because one good turn deserves another, I urge you to check out their Cube Central website here.

Hopefully they can help you out too. 🙂

For Builders…

 

Can you believe a builder would ever have use for a handyman? Well believe me they can. Before they can even hope to release a new build, many builders have a laundry list of snagging that has to be completed. And that’s where I would normally come in. Usually because I’m a more economical option to them than having to re-assign their regular tradies.

When working for other building businesses, versatility is king. A keen eye for a quality finish helps too. Any finishing works I undertake have to be invisible to my clients. With no visible cracks, bumps, or lumps. To be honest, there should be nothing that stands out to indicate any refinishing has been done.

For most building businesses, once initial contact has been established. It is standard practice for a work order to be placed through to me via email.

I will then contact the business to arrange a start time for the job. And I’ll discuss any prior requirements to be met. If need be, I will also arrange for an initial site visit to ascertain what materials may be needed.

Then, once a start time has been set. You will get my undivided attention right up to the job’s completion.

All billing will subsequently conducted via email.
