By joining the PestControl.co.uk team, you will have a career for life. Making use of our reputation, marketing and brand recognition, you will become a tried and trusted pillar in your local community, recognised for your accomplishments.
Here are some of the ways we can help you achieve your potential.
While we are ready to provide you with all the support you need to make a successful business, are you ready to represent the PestControl.co.uk brand? We assume not to begin with, which is why we provide a comprehensive training program to get you ready. Not just in how to get rid of pests, but how to run a business as well.
If you are already an existing pest controller, you can get major discounts on our franchise program (since you won't need all the training), so you can join at even lower costs.
Training will include:
- Pest control and methods of operation
- The safe use of pesticides and herbicides
- Bird proofing, surveying & installation
- Sales & Marketing
- IT & the use of our in house online management system
- Health & Safety
- BPCA Level 2 Certificate in Pest Control (we pay for you to gain this recognised qualification).
Once you've completed the initial training and are raring to go, that is just the beginning of your relationship with us. We will continue to support you 24/7 with personal guidance on how to build your business and reach the stage when you’re ready to take on your first employee. We are very keen on continual professional development and arrange training days throughout the year to keep you up to speed with the latest pest control techniques and strategies.
When you join PestControl.co.uk you will already be ahead of the game in terms of marketing as the PestControl.co.uk brand is respected and recognised in the industry. You will benefit from our extensive knowledge of marketing (both online and offline) and our campaigns for national contracts. We will also guide you on local marketing & sales strategies with the aim of securing valuable commercial contracts. With PestControl.co.uk, your phone will be ringing daily with new business - from the moment you start with us.
No Need for Hard Selling
Of course while marketing is essential to letting people know you exist and that you offer high quality, affordable services, one of the great things about the pest control industry is that there's no need to hard sell. Nobody wants rats, ants or cockroaches in their home or business, so you don't have to convince them that they should get rid of them. And commercial entities have to make sure they are providing a safe and healthy working environment. Of course when it comes to places such as pubs and restaurants which handle food, this is even more important. A lot of the commercial work that pest controllers carry out is based on routine contract work where you may visit a customer weekly, monthly or a few times a year, depending on their needs.
Low Cost Business Model
With the low costs of a local provider combined with the high attention of a national brand, you will be able to compete with anyone. It's not just in marketing where this comes in to play, but in the group purchasing of equipment and chemicals as well. As a group, we are important to suppliers. This means you will have access to much larger discounts on equipment and chemicals than you could secure as a sole practitioner. And of course lower costs make for higher profit margins!
What's more, the PestControl.co.uk business model is already proven and we encourage you to speak with existing franchisees who will answer any questions based on their personal experience as a PestControl.co.uk franchisee.
