Specialist home improvement finance company on-course for record year
Posted on 16/11/2017
A company that provides installers with finance solutions that they can offer to homeowners is on-course for a record year of trading.
Improveasy Finance Solutions, which is based in Manchester, looks set to end 2017 with the highest number of installers using its service.
Directors at the company say that they have seen a spike in enquiries from installers, as more and more consumers use finance options to fund home improvements such as double-glazed windows and conservatories.
Improveasy works across several different markets providing finance, including glass and glazing, which the company says is one of its fastest growing sectors.
Austin Barcley, Managing Director at the company, comments: “We’ve identified an upward trend over the last eighteen months of more people using finance options to upgrade their homes, creating a golden opportunity for installers of windows and conservatories.
“This has resulted in an increase in installers benefiting from our service and using our finance solutions to win more business.”
Austin and his team recently exhibited at the FIT Show, where they said they received a high number of enquiries.
He also says that Improveasy doesn’t just offer finance solutions and companies that partner with them can also access sales training seminars, alongside a host of innovative finance options.
Companies that become Appointed Representatives (AR) will appear on the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) register; and can then begin offering finance options, under the Improveasy brand.
Installers also have the opportunity to offer the finance options under their own company brand.
Austin concludes: “The appeal of our service is that in addition to the finance options, we also provide our customers with lots of added value such as training on how best to use finance in a sales context.
“Using our service is allowing SME installers to compete against the more established national brands, as they can now offer finance to the homeowner who nine times out of ten would rather choose a local installer local to them, to carry out their home improvements.”
