All FENSA Approved Installers can now offer competitive finance packages to their homeowner customers – at no cost to the installer in terms of time or money.
Partnering with home improvement finance specialists Improveasy, FENSA Finance allows installers to offer hassle-free payment options to customers at competitive interest rates. As an extension of the lead generation system on the FENSA website, customers will be able to get a finance quote when looking for a FENSA Approved Installer online. The loan must be for home improvements that a FENSA Approved Installer can carry out.
The process for both installers and homeowners could not be easier. Homeowners speak directly to Improveasy regarding the finance, with no involvement from their installer. Installers get paid directly from Improveasy once the customer has signed contracts and the work has been completed.
“Being able to provide customers with highly competitive payment options will help our members win more work at no cost to themselves,” Lis Clarke, Operations Director for FENSA and BFRC, said.
“Being able to offer flexible payment options to customers is another great way that being a FENSA Approved Installer can set your business apart from your competitors and turn more enquiries into sales, particularly in the current economic climate. And thanks to our partnership with Improveasy, the whole process is hassle-free too.”
Jeff Poole, Improveasy’s Managing Director for Consumer & Business Finance, said: “At Improveasy we’ve been providing home improvement businesses with the chance to offer simple and flexible payment options to their customers nationwide for over ten years, and we’re delighted extend our partnership with FENSA to offer their installers across the country this new service.
“As an installer, with FENSA Finance there’s minimal paperwork, while your customer benefits from being able to spread the cost of the installation – very important amidst the current cost of living crisis. We handle everything as homeowners speak directly to us, so there is no need to get involved. Then, once we’ve done our bit and agreed the finance with your customer, you get paid directly, in full, from us. It couldn’t be easier.
This new capability complements our existing member benefit for FENSA installers where we can support them offer consumers finance, whether they’re directly authorised by the FCA or not. Our leading one-stop-shop tech platform accesses a broad spectrum of finance products (including interest-free, interest-bearing and buy-now-pay-later) via a panel of lenders across all risk and measure type categories.”
