As a plumber, starting in the industry can be very daunting and you can often struggle to think of what you would like to specialise in. Some companies focus on small domestic maintenance jobs while other larger companies only work with large commercial jobs and this means there is work for everyone in the industry.
There are various plumbing agencies that may find their niche in domestic plumbing, but also may consult and subcontract their services to other companies who require their expertise. We want to talk about how to decide and manage your time wisely in order to run a successful plumbing business.
Here is some advice that we have taken in the past and would like to now share that with our honored viewers in hopes they are able to take the courage to start their own plumbing business.
1. Putting all your eggs in a single basket.
Please don’t expect that working with one builder or another company will allow you to survive and have jobs coming to you as that is not quite how this industry works. There is very little loyalty in the construction industry and this is the cause of a surplus of dodgy vendors. The jobs often become based on price and the plumber that quotes the cheapest prices are the ones that will miss out on the smaller maintenance jobs. Find your pricing point that allows you to provide quality work and that will help you stand out from the crowd.
2. Quote on everything.
You will be receiving quotes left right and center and it is up to you to provide pricing based on the time and effort you believe is required to complete the job. This also means you are quoting for your time that you need to come out to the property or the job to take a proper look.
3. Winning bigger jobs
When you win a job over other plumbers in the industry, you will want to ring the project manager to see what is required of you. What time you are required and how often is very important as it will allow you to find out how to organise your time outside of the jobs to still collect a proper income.
