Leaders of Door-Stop International have offered support to self-employed installers affected by the administration of Safestyle UK. Those previously working with Safestyle UK can access new short-term finance solutions so that they can order, install and receive payment for doors before having to pay Door-Stop, the team has announced. The aim is to help self-employed installers maintain a healthy cashflow while they are in the process of securing future work.
“These skilled fitters are the lifeblood of the door and window industry,” said Mark Young, commercial director of Door-Stop. “Maintaining a consistent pipeline of work is crucial, so we are stepping in with short-term economic support and fast-tracked supply.
“Ensuring installers can continue to trade with confidence should be a major priority for all connected with the door and window supply and fitting industry. Door-Stop is determined to play its part.”
To help get set up as quickly as possible, installers can access to Door-Stop’s Sales Manager software. The online door designer and order tool can be added to existing websites to make it easier for the installer’s customer to design, price and pay for a door. It is fully customisable, according to Door-Stop’s representative, so installers can have control over the information needed, the product ranges on offer, the payment process and more.
Fitters utilising Door-Stop’s business support offering can additionally access to exclusive pricing for a limited range of doorsets. With various door styles, colours and glazing options available from Door-Stop’s top sellers, installers can offer on-trend styles at a competitive price. The business’ 10-day lead time means that installers can continue to meet current demand without too much disruption to project timelines, says Door-Stop’s representative.
Installers that would like to learn more about the business assistance can call the Door-Stop team on 01623 446 336, choosing option 4.
