Company Overview

Access4Lofts supply and install loft hatches, loft ladders, boarding, lighting and insulation so that our customers can easily access and utilise all the storage space in their lofts.

Franchise Overview

As with all the best ideas, the Access4Lofts business concept is a simple one. By helping our customers utilise wasted space by providing quick, easy and affordable loft access and storage solutions. Access4Loft had operated for 8 years previouly purely as a local operation in Devon with great success.  We realised that there was a need for our service nationally and the best.


Our 5 day training programme is held at our dedicated training facility in Plymouth. This facility has a classroom where new franchisees are guided through issues such as health & safety & where they will learn to use the Access4Lofts admin system. The facility also hosts a training area where franchisees are shown how to fit our full range of ladders, hatches & boarding. By the end of the training week, franchisees drive away fully prepared to hit the ground running with everything they need to run a successful loft storage business.  Each franchisee gets a dedicated operational support director who they can call on for support & advice if needed.

Daily Life of a franchisee

As an Access4Lofts franchisee you’ll have the freedom to be your own boss and manage your own time, all backed up by a support team dedicated to help you succeed, fantastic systems and processes that make running your business easy and a franchise network who help each other when needed!

From talking to customers on the phone & visiting them in their homes to ascertain their storage requirements to actually installing our full range of loft ladders, hatches, boarding and lighting – no 2 days are ever the same!

John Ioneasa

John started his career as an apprentice on various types of construction sites where he gained valuable experience and learnt the skills to handle almost any job in the building trade.

However, He felt he should try his hand in other industries and, after a brief time working in an office and then as a delivery driver, he realised that his passion really lay within the building industry “I love working with my hands and getting job satisfaction from doing a good days work. Plus, I like how appreciative clients are when they see the final result” he says.

So, why did John decide to join Access4Lofts?

Having always wanted to run his own business he started to search for a franchise and came across Access4Lofts. After doing some due diligence, John got in touch with Access4Lofts and the rest as they say is history.

“From the minute I made the call everything was simple and transparent. I could really identify with how founders Tim and Lindsay started the business and their dream to grow it from the ground up” says John.

John had this to say about our training course:

We asked John for his feedback on the training course and he told us it was a “breath of fresh air to have so much support and assistance with all aspects of the business”.

They say that if you love what you do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life and we think that’s exactly how John feels!

Billy Makepeace

  • Previous Job: Mechanical Engineer
  • Joined Access4Lofts in January 2021

Billy has a HND in mechanical engineering and spent 10 years in the plastic injection moulding industry. He finished off managing a factory with 10 machines before emigrating from South Africa to the UK.

The next 19 years saw him employed in the construction industry as a quantity surveyor working on major projects like Heathrow Terminal 5, London Olympic Park, numerous Heathrow refurbishment projects and large residential projects in London.

So, why did Billy decide to join Access4Lofts?

“I’ve always wanted to run my own business, but I seriously lack sales and marketing skills. A franchisor would normally have done a lot of the ground work required to get a business up and running, so it is a no brainer.”

Billy heard about Access4Lofts through a friend and spent a few days with an existing franchisee to really understand the trade “I was confident I could do the practical work and was impressed that Access4Lofts provided so much assistance with all aspects of the business.”

Billy had this to say about our training course:

“Access4Lofts have taken most of the ‘ground work’ out of setting up and running a business and provided a business opportunity you can just run with.

“All the systems implemented by the franchisor have been developed with the intention of minimising the adminstration tasks for the new business owner. They have achieved this objective very effectively. It’s reassuring to know that by following their proven system, you’ll be a success!”

Finally we asked Billy what he would say to anyone considering investing in an Access4Lofts franchise – his answer was simple “just do it, you won’t regret it.”
