Do I need experience?
While DIY skills or a trade/project management background is a plus, Hire-A-Hubby’s comprehensive training, ongoing support and award-winning systems remove the need for experience.
Things we can not teach are a good attitude and work ethic along with the desire to own your own business and be in charge of your life. This is what you need to bring and goes along way to being a successful business owner.
How is Hire-A-Hubby different from its competitors?
Hire-A-Hubby is the most recognised home handyman brand in New Zealand.
1. Fixed fees
The royalty and brand levy fees paid monthly by our franchisees are fixed. There's no uncertainty over outgoing payments and no penalties for earning more money in a given week.
2. We give you the power to be your own boss and truly run your own business. With our comprehensive training and ongoing support, our franchisees:
- Quote jobs for clients and deal directly with them.
- Invoice jobs personally and receive payment straight into their own bank accounts (not ours).
- Take care of their own tax returns and GST payments.
3. 21st century technology
Our award-winning franchise system is managed electronically, eliminating paper trails and saving our franchisees hundreds of dollars each year. Jobs are received, quoted and invoiced electronically, meaning no unnecessary trips to the post office and no long hours filling out paperwork.
4. Big brand Alliance Partners
We've aligned ourselves with some of the most recognised brands in New Zealand, giving you the power to buy at the right price. Our current Alliance Partners include Vodafone, Bunnings, ANZ, Z Energy and Rothbury Insurance. Here is what our partners have to say:
When it comes to branding and market share, bigger is indeed better!
Because we're a well-established brand with trusted brand values, we attract a large percentage of work in our category. This high demand means more growth – of both our company and our market share – and that's good for all of us.
We continually support our brand through an active marketing and advertising programme underpinned by a strong, business-enabling website and 0800 call centre.
Local area marketing is encouraged, and will be included as part of your equipment pack and training prior to starting your franchise.
