A leading consumer support organisation has published a manual to help installers respond to evolving buyer demands.The Consumer Protection Association has published a document called ‘Why are the legalities important?’Using the document installers can find out how they can use ‘boring’ legislation changes; legal frameworks and insurance backed guarantees to boost sales within their business.
The manual can be downloaded from the CPA’s website. Jeremy Brett, who is a Director at the organisation, comments: “The legalities do matter- whether it is terms and conditions to protect an installer’s business, insurance backed guarantees and deposit protection that are crucial to winning profitable new business; or changes around consumer legislation and the industry – we can help.“And this guide is a starting point for a number of these issues. Busy installers don’t often have time to find out all of this information – that’s our job. We’re here to offer support and knowledge so installers can concentrate on growing their business.”
