Bromley-based construction contractor Scott Macias is taking on the South London franchise of Drain Doctor Plumbing Ltd, the UK’s premiere combined plumbing and drainage business. Scott will be covering the boroughs of Battersea, Brixton, Camberwell, Clapham, Dulwich, Lambeth, Norbury and Tooting.
Scott has a sound background in the construction industry undertaking house repairs and maintenance work. Most recently he has been working as a subcontractor in the responsive repair industry for firms such as Morrisons and Mears.
Scott said: “I have been working as a subcontractor for the past ten years and I feel that the time is now right for a new challenge.
“Drainage is a good business to get into because when a drain is blocked you can’t just leave it, it needs clearing.
“I spoke to other franchisees and they all said that joining Drain Doctor was the best thing that they had ever done. They all said that it’s hard work but the system does work and the effort pays dividends.”
After researching various plumbing/drainage franchise opportunities Scott decided on Drain Doctor because it has a proven system that offers a largely recession-proof opportunity. He said: “I can still be an independent operator running my own business but with all the back-up that comes with being part of a large national organisation. You just don’t get the same support with other franchises that you do with a Drain Doctor franchise.”
Scott continued: “I will start with one van and one technician but I intend to expand and promote the business to commercial and domestic customers and make the franchise as big as possible for the area, with a staff of qualified plumbers and drainage technicians on call in vans fully equipped to deal with most plumbing and drainage problems.
“My aim is to give businesses and householders across South London the same ‘dazzling’ level of service which Drain Doctor provides across the rest of the country.
“Our customers get fixed-price, no obligation quotes, a complete guarantee on all work, and a full 24 hour, seven days per week service with no call out charges – so people pay the same price for work at any time of day or night. What’s more, we turn up at the agreed time!”
