Mike and Matthew’s story:
Mike and Matthew had grown their family removals and haulage company from a one-man-and-a-van operation to a 12-strong vehicle fleet. But their livelihoods were threatened by a slump in the housing market and surge in fuel prices. To beat the recession, they started looking for a new sector that promised steady rewards, even through a period of economic uncertainty. They chose to invest in a Metro Rod franchise, and they’ve never looked back.
Metro Rod’s access to existing contracts with blue chip names such as Balfour Beatty, Primark, Pizza Express and Vue Cinemas meant the boys were up and running from day one. The strong existing client base, and solid support from Metro Rod’s central support centre made it easier to develop new accounts of their own, without the fluctuations they had experienced in the housing industry.
In Their Own Words:
“Within three months of buying the business, we had to employ a second full-time engineer. With Metro Rod, you reap what you sow. When we put in the work, we get great rewards.”
