About Aspray Ltd

AsprayCompany Overview

Aspray specialises in project managing both property insurance claims and repair work caused by storms, burst pipes, accidental damage or fire and floods. 

Insurance claims provide most of the work, giving high margins and guaranteed payments, and because this type of damage is constant it really is a recession-proof - and highly lucrative - business. Aspray also works with a variety of national brokers, as well as individual companies, to ensure there is a constant pipeline of work.

The next available Aspray discovery dates are: 30 November (Enfield), 15 December (Darwen) and 25 January (Sutton Coldfield). Find out more and book onto an Aspray Discovery Day here.

Surveys on damaged properties; meeting loss adjusters; dealing with customers; understanding insurance policies; FSA regulations; software training; contractors/CIS/vetting.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Aspray franchisees operate, on behalf of the insured, a fully comprehensive building claims management service. The role requires assessing property damage, negotiating with insurance companies and using contractors to ensure the work is carried out. 

There are two sides to the franchise: one is onsite, dealing with contractors and the customer; and the other is working from home making calls, putting schedules together, speaking with insurance companies.
