How to create a perfect construction package for your clients

Published date: 02 December 2016

Your clients are likely to be investing a considerable sum of money in the work that you will be doing for them, so it’s only natural for them to feel apprehensive. Whether it’s a small or large project, giving your clients extra reassurance can do wonders for both parties.

As a member of the Federation of Master Builders, your work has already earned a valuable stamp of approval, but being able to provide your clients with a complete start-to-finish package will truly make your business stand out from the rest, and may help you secure future work.

What better way to help reassure your clients than by offering them a warranty from the UK's largest construction trade association. FMB Insurance has a wide selection of warranties available that will not only protect your work in the future, but will also give your clients extra reassurance if anything should go wrong.

FMB members receive discounts on all of our insurance products, so why not take a look at our handy guide to building your clients a fantastic construction package?

Include extra information in your quotation

It's very likely that your client will not be getting a quote from just you/your business alone, so it's important to make sure that you stand out from the rest.

Why not pop one of FMB Insurance's handy warranty leaflets into your quotation? Not only will it reflect on your professionalism, it'll also give your clients an idea of the level of cover they can expect if they choose to select an FMB Insurance warranty.

We can also provide quote indications for you to supply your clients with – providing you have the information required to do so. This will give both you and your client a general idea of how much the premium will be, before a formal quotation. Give FMB Insurance a call and we will gladly assist.

Remember: you, the builder, or the client can take out an FMB Insurance warranty. It does not affect the policy in any way.

Choose a suitable policy for you and your client

Domestic and Commercial Warranties – Value, 2, 6 or 10 years

FMB Insurance’s Domestic and Commercial warranties make a great addition to all building work: everything from porches or internal alterations through to extensions and loft conversions.

These warranties stretch from 2 to 10 years post-completion, as well as cover for your clients’ deposit and the construction phase of the project.

New Homes Structural Defects Insurance – 10 years

FMB Insurance's New Homes policy is a fantastic alternative to the traditional 10 year structural warranties currently on the market.

With cover available for a wide range of developments, including modern methods of construction, partially complete and completed dwellings, FMB’s New Homes policy is also accepted by most UK mortgage lenders.

So if you would like to start offering your clients high quality, cost-effective peace of mind, or if you would like more information on FMB Insurance’s full range of products, simply request a quote via our website or give us a call on 01353 652760.
