    its a great cashflow i think but with 17% of homes experiencing a breakdown per year i dont know how close the margins would be

    Fact is these types of assurance businesses are popping up every day. Many are doing it. What is sold is a form of 'peace of mind' in that if you are signed up you have some form of guaranteed response when the stuff hits the fan - it's freezing outside and your boiler fails.

    When plumbers are the simply the worst of every trade at responding to customers it provides a valuable opportunity for those prepared to put themselves out. No, I do not want to start a debate about whether YOU respond or not... Frankly, if you're on here you're statistically far more likely to give a sh1t ;)

    The type of people who typically take out this form of protection are likely to read the papers - Mail & Express = older people. They take what they read in these fish & chip wrappers and get sucked in by it. This type of assurance is designed to re balance those feelings of dread.

    All I would say is PLEASE do it properly!

    Haha, just realised the OP was talking about boiler cover insurance, first time I read it I thought he was selling the covers for boilers!
    In my defence I had had a few beers that day. :)

    thanks for th reply people

    i was just wondering what yous thought the numbers would be ie how many call outs also i think using facetime could half all callouts as yous guys know many of the time the boiler isnt broken

    for every thousand i reckon there would be 50-60 call per month?

    Based on what?
    There are other ways of working out your numbers. In fact they already exist publically. Do not reinvent the wheel.
    That said, I ain't doing it for you cos its YOUR potential business ;)
