Company Overview

All Trades Network operate within the construction/insurance sector, offering our clients (major UK insurers and loss adjustors) a comprehensive re-instatement service; from initial validation/repudiation of a domestic insurance claim, through to undertaking the survey, costing and finally scheduling the repairs required. 

During the whole process our paramount concern is our client’s customer – the policy holder – to ensure that they receive the service they expect from a major household named insurer.

Franchise Overview

All Trades Network commenced franchising in 2005, and now have over 30 regional offices offering our clients a truly nationwide coverage for their building re-instatement needs.

We are still actively recruiting new franchisees to the brand and as such have a number of prime territories still available.

Our head office and central support team are based in Blackburn; it is from here that we handle our national clients, who during 2012 gave our franchisees almost £6m worth of work instruction.

Training

Although training is designed around individual needs, a typical programme would consist of 5 days at our Blackburn head office, designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the insurance re-instatement sector; ATOMs, your bespoke software package; practical and theoretical experience in validating and repudiation of insurance claims; and an understanding of sales and marketing and administration.

This is followed by further training within the field covering surveying, scoping and scheduling of projects.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

The role of contracts manager is a varied and challenging one. From initial contact with our client’s policy holder, right through to the completion of works, you are the one that ensures everything runs smoothly.

From initial survey and costing, and then through to the management of your team of professional tradespeople and the expectations of the policy holder, you are the catalyst, the one that makes it work.
