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!
Your local Regional Master or National Franchisor will contact you by phone. This way you can find out more about the basics of the business and we can find out a bit more about you so as to ensure a package is tailored to best suit your needs.
Upon the initial phone call, you will then be sent the Part A Information Pack to assist with you learning more about the opportunity.
*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.
VIP Fencing (Matt Couper) was quick to respond to my request for a quote. They visited within a day and the quote was emailed right away. Changes requested by the neighbours were happily accommodated, and the prices were competitive. Most pleasingly, Matt set a day to do the work, and was there on time and on the day stated. I cannot actually recall the last time a tradie did that. He worked hard all day, and finished after dark. Very well done and left the site tidy. And on top of that he was friendly and accommodating. Can't ask for more. If you want a fence done for a good price, with a good result, on time as promised, then Matt is the bloke to speak to. Thanks Matt.

Brilliant in all aspects of the build, it was a very small job but Sid treated it as any other job so would recommend anytime.

From the first time I contacted Harley to the completion of my new fence ( exposed post with palings & gate) his professionalism was exemplary. Although only a small fence it had lots of angles and challenges and I could not be happier with the end result. The quality and craftsmanship is amazing and I would highly recommended Harley.

Clint was great to deal with and was very accommodating with availability. No hail, rain, challenging neighbour or rocks stopped him from putting up a great back fence. Thanks for all your hard work Clint.

Thank you Bryan for a very professional job which has added value to our property. The fence and shed look great and we couldn't be happier. Bryan was always helpful, courteous and punctual and able to make good suggestions. (Facebook Review)

To Whom it may concern, We are absolutely thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Angelo (Ange). We were so lucky Ange was able to fit our job in due to a cancellation. Ange went above and beyond to ensure that both ourselves and our neighbours were happy throughout the whole process. He worked back during the week and was there on the weekend. The fence was completed on-time even though there was some lost time initially. Ange you are a credit to yourself and the VIP brand. I will certainly be recommending Ange and VIP to all my friends and family. All the best mate and Merry Christmas

Mark was excellent to deal with, from the quote through to completion. Mark communicated promptly and professionally. The workmanship of the fence is of high standard and we are very happy we chose VIP Fencing for our fence replacement. Thank you.

We wholeheartedly recommend Shaun Smiley and VIP Home Services for their excellent fencing work. We were delighted with the high quality result, the meticulous attention to detail, the efficiency and timeliness of the work, the professionalism, the value for money - and also (importantly) with the whole process, as Shaun and VIP were an absolute delight to deal with. Shaun completed two boundary fences on either side of our residential property. It was a complex job involving a heritage property, working with 3 separate property owners, and huge old vines completely covering the existing fences which we wanted to preserve. to be cont...
