More work for Guild members
Members of the public anxious to contact skilled craftsmen in many different trade categories seek assistance from The Guild of Professional Home Services. Institutions and organisations also require lists of contractors to whom they should submit tenders. To assist them, The Guild maintains a register of members which is constantly updated and a telephone help-line which ensures that enquiries are dealt with promptly and efficiently. The Guild and its affiliated companies have worked with thousands of Real Estate offices over the past decade. This special relationship built up over time, allows the Guild to promote its members directly to local real estate offices, building referral business for members.
Reducing the impact of differences with customers
Customer complaints are bad for business. Left unanswered they cause resentment, arouse hostility, and can easily tarnish a well earned reputation. Yet answered promptly, and with conviction, they can actually increase goodwill and open the door to new business. Customers are very appreciative of suppliers who listen to complaints and respond to genuine grievances with consideration and concern. In addition, prompt and efficient action in the early days of a dispute can prevent the problem escalating, and avoid incurring expensive legal fees. The Guild’s conciliation service is entirely free. With complaints the Guild will telephone and email to help get a resolution with the customer.
