How to Grow your Plumbing Business

16th August 2017

If you are looking to grow your plumbing business then you might be left wondering where to start. One of the biggest obstacles people face is having the space to expand your business and accommodate more staff. Renting larger spaces can be extremely costly and can add long term expenses that could be damaging. Our guide gives you advice on how to grow your business without having to spend a huge amount.


One of the best ways to grow your plumbing business is to expand your storage options for a number of purposes. It is likely that you will need to use certain parts or equipment regularly and buying certain items in small quantities as and when you need them, can be expensive and not time-efficient. Having somewhere secure to store stock of items really allows you to cut costs in the long run. It also provides you with a central location to store your tools to make sure that they are kept safe. You could also use a storage space to act as a central depot for your employees and allow them access to the storage unit.

Hire Staff

Another important aspect of growing your business is taking on more staff to deal with extra demand for your services. If you build up a good reputation and have plenty of work coming in, you might face the problem of not having enough time to do each job that comes up. This is particularly true of emergency plumbing, which needs to be taken care of at short notice. Taking on more staff, even if it is only for a temporary basis, allows you to expand your business and grow the amount of work you can take on.


When expanding your business, it is important that you streamline your operation and put clear processes in place to make sure everything runs smoothly. You should ensure that your payment process is clear to all your clients and that you work on a ‘payment on completion’ basis. This means that you won’t be waiting around for invoices to return and having to chase them up to get payment on your work. You should also set out the processes of your business, including how you intend your employees to work and the standards they should keep. This will allow you to offer the same quality of service throughout and that your staff maintains a good work ethic.

Repeat Business

It is important that you secure repeat customers to help you grow your plumbing company. Repeat business is key to keeping your stream of work stable. Having a constant income is essential when paying for staff, storage space and extra stock. You can achieve returning customers and keep people coming back to your business by providing a high level of service. Making sure all of your employees adhere to the same principles and high level of service is important.
