Speedy offers boost to self-employed tradesmen

Thinking of going self-employed and entering the big world of plumbing or electrics on your own? A new service from Speedy has been introduced to help tradesmen running their own business.

Speedy, who specialise in renting construction equipment around the UK, are launching a new members-only service for independent tradesmen and small and medium-sized contractors to help them find their feet once qualified.

“Speedy Assist” is designed to help small businesses become more successful and will include things like car and van rentals, small business insurance, mobile phones and legal advice.

Speedy will also help spread the word about contractors in their local areas and assist with business leads and advice.

The membership of this service is expected to save tradesmen an estimated £1,400, compared to going solo and spending money on tools and marketing yourself.

Speedy Assists’ John Byrne said in a statement that, “SME’s are the backbone of the UK’s industry and as budgets get tighter and strive to fill order books, we felt it would help our SME customers.”

This initiative from Speedy seems positive, as it is tough out there as a self-employed contractor and this can give some people a helping hand to get some work and build a reputation in their local area.

What do you think of Speedy’s plans? Let us know at all the usual places, on here or on the Train4TradeSkills Facebook and Twitter pages.
