Today we’re talking a bit more about the tech used on jobs, from parking apps through to literally ‘measuring up’ tips. Peter explains the real cost of parking in London and Andy starts his first in a multi-part series of rants about the local council.
In this episode we continue on the theme of business management from last time and discuss hourly and daily rates for carpentry work, briefly discuss some of the technology used in our daily routine and also chat about surviving in a small workshop.
Peter and Andy have a quick chat about current jobs and discuss how they built up their joinery businesses over the years. What marketing worked for each business and how has this changed over the years? They touch on job pricing, contracts and the sales process from first customer contact through to job completion.
Andy and Peter discuss how they entered the world of commercial joinery. From an early age both had a background in making things and in this podcast we find out how their carpentry and cabinet making businesses evolved to where they are now, both through slightly unconventional routes.
