The InstallerONSITE Efficiency Guide
Commercial Director, CORGI Services
The tradespeople we work with tell us they are operating in a market that is more competitive than ever. They need to deliver today, whilst planning for the future. They need new customers, whilst keeping their existing ones happy. They need to minimise material costs, without compromising on quality. They need information about new regulations and incentives, without getting buried in bureaucracy and process.
In such a competitive market, trust is more important than ever before. To maximise customer trust in you, we know you need to trust the supplier of your professional services wholeheartedly.
For more than 40 years, CORGI Services has been a voice of authority in heating, plumbing and renewables, giving tradespeople and home-owners independent, practical support. The success of our services has always depended on having a strong dialogue with the sector, and an appreciation of the challenges people working within it face.
CORGI was originally established in 1970 as the Confederation for the Registration of Gas Installers, to operate a voluntary register. Today, we run an ever-expanding portfolio of professional services to suit your every need, whilst maintaining our ethos of supporting gas safety by remaining a primary funder of the Gas Safety Trust. Whether you work in installation and maintenance around heating, plumbing or renewables, we have quality products to improve the service you offer, solve customer problems and help boost your bottom line.
Our mission is to be your professional tool kit, here to support any element of your business. This is why we’re the Business Sponsor for the InstallerONSITE tour, which has a special focus on business efficiency. When a trades-person is re-evaluating any element of their business process, from accounting to marketing, CORGI Services is here to help them excel.
Our services are borne out of feedback from our members and our commitment to helping them grow their businesses. We aim to develop market-leading services and back them up with market-leading customer service and support. Our key products include:
Our HomePlan helps you increase your boiler sales leads and streamline your working processes. It provides the maintenance cover that research shows customers want, at the best possible value. With HomePlan, we aim to anticipate your challenges by reminding you when your boiler services are due and providing more work in your area. We even pay you to deliver free boiler replacements, and it’s free to become a member.
Our membership package is all about generating more business. For £140+VAT per year, our membership shows that you’re at the top of your game, providing consumers with the safest, most professional workmanship on the market.
CORGI Technical Services
CORGI Technical Services understands the requirements that are placed on companies and organisations who need to oversee, manage and control gas safety effectively. We therefore offer a wide range of services from Gas Safety Audits and Expert Witness seminars, to gas safety qualifications for gas managers, front-line staff and tenants.
In today’s climate of spending cutbacks and high profile gas safety cases, and with the introduction of short notice inspections by regulatory bodies, your organization needs to be as prepared as possible. We ensure our clients have the controls, procedures and support to meet legal requirements and fulfil safety standards.
CORGI VAT Saver
It can be challenging to keep up to speed with VAT regulations and the application of them to your business. Research has shown that, for this reason, the majority of installers are missing out on a competitive advantage and losing business.
CORGI VAT Saver is developed specifically for Gas Safe registered engineers. It calculates your VAT, taking into account that the ‘energy saving’ element of the job is subject to a lower VAT rate. It can help reduce the VAT you pay by an estimated £140 on every boiler you install, saving you money, keeping your customers happy and helping save the environment.
Our new range of controls and renewable products are borne out of 37 years of experience in the manufacture and distribution of products to the plumbing and electrical industry. Our new range of controls have extended warranties, will save you money and give you peace of mind.
CORGI Insurance Services
Through our insurance partners, we provide you with the best value business insurance on the market. Our policies include Public and Employers Liability Insurance, Commercial Vehicle Insurance, Business Premises Insurance and Personal Accident and Sickness Insurance.
CORGI Telecom offers businesses exceptional value across all of your telecommunication needs, from fantastic broadband packages to landline and mobile offers. We offer the latest cutting edge technology at an affordable price.
