Plumbing and heating members have access to a range of benefits, including being able to arrange finance for customers. With this in mind, we look at the top five reasons why having the facility to offer credit can be a great way to win more business.
Having access to different payment options offers customers a genuine choice and helps them to feel more in control of the renovation process. It can also help set the basis for a more harmonious relationship between client and contractor, with projects appearing more reasonable and affordable.
The ability to ‘buy now, pay later’ can make a huge difference when deciding whether to proceed with a project. Being able to spread costs out over time helps to make dream projects like a bathroom renovation, or a kitchen upgrade far more affordable. This helps to take the sting out a new project and helps to make projects more affordable.
Being able to offer finance gives customers another reason to choose you that doesn’t relate to the price – and can become part of a negotiation that leaves your margins unaffected.

Offering customers deferred payment options helps to unlock more ways to win business, most notably through upselling. Finance packages help to make projects more affordable, meaning customers are more inclined to specify higher value items for their projects. Often, customers will have only been put off these items initially because of their price. As such, access to credit can make all the difference and help boost your margins.
Financing is a great way to stand out from the crowd and helps to differentiate you from the competition. This can be particularly useful when customers are comparing estimates from a number of businesses. Being able to pay through finance might be the deciding factor for a customer.
