Making such a big decision about your future isn't something we expect anyone to do overnight. In fact, we encourage anyone considering this to think long and hard about it to determine if this is right for them and their family. Below is a guide on what you need to do next to find out more about buying a franchise or master franchise via our no obligation process.
The process that is outlined to you below is designed to help you find out whether life as a V.I.P. franchise owner could be for you. You can take as little or long as you like. What is important is that you are right for V.I.P. and V.I.P. is right for you.
As a standalone business owner, I found it difficult to find new customers; you put an ad in the paper and wait, hoping that someone is going to ring you. The ongoing assistance and support from a franchisor with obtaining sale leads really appealed. When I was doing it by myself, I was also figuring it out myself.
Working within the framework of a franchise, you have the support of people that have many years of knowledge and experience’ who are working together to help you succeed.
After speaking to Warren, I realised that they had been interviewing me, rather than the other way round. They weren’t just asking if I had money in the bank!
Upon receipt of your Information Booklet: Your local Regional Master or National Franchisor will contact you for a phone interview. This way you can find out more about the basics of the business and we can find out a bit more about you.
*All master franchise inquiries will be called by National Franchisor first prior to any information being provided.
The next step is to book a couple of "experience day(s)", essentially this is where you get the chance to spend some time with a current franchise owner/trainer.
You will get some hands-on experience, gather more information and get an idea if you can see yourself running a similar business. There is absolutely no obligation, and it is simply an opportunity for you to find out more facts. It is at this step that you will receive your "Local Information Guide" that outlines in more detail the opportunity and financial commitment required to become one of our business owners.
After your experience day(s) if both parties are happy with what they have seen to date, you can book a time to catch up with your local Regional Master/National Franchisor or discuss further by telephone. They will guide you through the process, answer all of your questions and will probably help you formulate some questions of your own. They need to speak with you in person as they need to be confident you are the right sort of person to be a V.I.P. F&HM franchise owner and you need to be confident that we are the right fit for you too.
If you are happy to proceed further, and V.I.P. are happy with your performance and work ethic, the next step is to book in a Doc-Prep Meeting. This is where your local Regional Master/National Franchisor can provide a road-map to guide you into your new business and life!
We only grant franchise territories & regions to those candidates we believe will be successful – after all that's how we build the success of V.I.P.
"I used Warren Smith from V.I.P. Home Services Fencing to replace a fence that a tree had knocked down and found his service to be a delight! He got rid of the tree for me and along with his sons had the new fence up for me in no time, the fence itself looks fantastic, so much so I am getting him back later in the month to do another fence that needs replacing. Fairly priced and great service says I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of fencing work."

"I would like to thank Bryan for the quick turnaround in the job he undertook for me. From making himself available to quote the job and then to actually getting on with it and completing the work to a high standard immediately. I will certainly be recommending Bryan to friends and I would not hesitate to call VIP Fencing for any future requirements."
- Peter Lazidis (Fencing Services Perth)
"Thanks Bryan for a great job repairing my fence which was damaged in a recent storm. You took the time to describe what needed to happen, advised me on some things I didn't notice and kept me updated through the whole process, which was completed in a matter of weeks. Great service and a great job. I highly recommend dealing with VIP Fencing - Fremantle."
- Jo McAllister (Fencing Services Perth)
"I initially requested a simple wooden fence with a gate. I worked with Justin who clarified my requests and suggested suitable timber, posting and fence/gate stability requirements. He was reliable, responsive and honest. The end result was above my expectations - and crafted to perfection. The wow factor is always impressive, well done! Thank you again."
- Dionne Shnider (Fencing Services Melbourne)
"I am very delight to recommend Justin from VIP Home service, who replaced the old fence to acoustic wall for us. All my requirements are carefully being considered and all the issues are solved perfectly. Hassle-free! I would not hesitate to hire him again and recommend to all my friends if any fence work happened. Thanks, Justin."
- Wei (Fencing Services Toorak)
"Justin is a very customer-oriented professional with a strong focus on quality. As part of a larger residential landscaping project, Justin built for us 2 boundary fences, a front picket fence & gate, 2 side fences with gates, and a retaining wall for our front garden. Justin worked in well with our landscapers, took care to minimise disruption to our property, and also displayed a lot of patience when interacting with us at times difficult neighbours. He also took plenty of time to understand our needs and, as we were trying to work out what we wanted, provided useful suggestions and advice regarding different materials and styles."
- John (Fencing Services Surry Hills)
"I used another fencing company to do my left fence, and regretted it. A couple years on it's now wobbling and warped. Justin built my right fence shortly after and did a brilliant job - so good that I got him to then build my front white picket fence, which was even more impressive. He said he was building a piece of furniture for my front yard, so it needed to be done well. He's easy to deal with and delivers a quality end product for a fair price."
- Adrian (Fencing Services Malvern East)
"Ours was a challenging retaining wall project requiring 32 steel posts and 132 concrete sleepers, creating a 60 meter long meter high wall. Despite the problems caused by the sloppy site Justin approached the work calmly and methodically and built our wall ruler straight. Impressive! He and his assistant worked overtime to finish the job and left us a very happy customer. We highly recommend this talented, reliable and pleasant tradesman."
