Certass CQ-Assured Installer Scheme members can offer 0% finance on home improvements, thanks to its Shermin Finance partnership. With a range of easy point-of-sale credit options available, this extra benefit to Certass installers can help them to increase leads, sales and order values.
Jason Clemmit, Managing Director at Certass explains: “This is just one of the added-value benefits that are offered to Certass members.
“Installers can now be simply approved as appointed representatives of Shermin Finance and be able to offer Buy Now Pay Later, Interest Free Schemes and Low Rate Finance plans to their customers”
Shermin Finance has more than 40 years’ experience in home improvement finance and offers fantastic support for installers and their customers. The funds are paid directly to the installer on completion of the project and there are no on-going management fees.
The application is simple, with the option for installers to complete the forms with the homeowner, or to refer them directly to Shermin Finance to help.
Jason continues: “This is a great benefit to installers, especially members who run their own independent home improvement companies. It means that they choose whether to offer customers the finance options directly or pass the homeowner’s details directly to Shermin Finance.
“Once approved and the work is completed to the customer satisfaction, the funds are paid to the installer.”
Certass CQ-Assured Installer Scheme members also have free access to an Alternate Dispute Resolution Service and get discounts on Approved Inspector Fees.
