The Franchise Package
"Offer a Complete Range of Drainage Services in Your Area"
Our Market

The Drain Guys Services

The Drain Guys work with a wide range of clients. The split is around 70% commercial and 30% domestic customers (householders).

Our domestic work is based around emergency call outs–a blocked drain or a blocked toilet is not a lot of fun and so we try to respond to these calls as quickly as possible and offer a same day solution and if that’s not possible within 24 hours of receiving the customers call.

We have a very wide range of commercial customers, and we are trusted by a huge range of commercial partners. Some of our commercial work is carried out as a preventative maintenance contract on an annual or bi-annual basis.

The result is a well balanced business model of continued, reliable customers.
