How to Finance Your Plumbing Business

Plumbing is one of the up-and-coming career opportunities with a lot of potential these days. After you have completed the training and learned all the tricks of the trade, the next step you plan to take is to start your own plumbing business to earn money with your skills. If you are wondering what investment and funding is required to start a plumbing business and why it’s important, here are some factors to consider for a sure start.

Why are financial resources important for plumbing businesses?

Before we get into the different ways to raise capital, you may first wonder why we need funding for a plumbing business. This is one of the first challenges of starting this type of business. Well, there are a few things you need to look out for when starting a new business. First of all, one thing is to acquire a small office space from which you can work and offer or book your services. Other expenses include electricity bills, insurance, payroll for the assistant if you hire one, marketing costs, and some regular expenses.

4 Ways to Finance a Plumbing Business

Plumbing business does not cost much and requires relatively less funding than other businesses. Therefore, you do not need to worry about going into debt for this startup. However, there are a few ways you can finance your business.

Personal Loan

Most business loans require that you have been operating a business for a certain amount of time before you can get a loan. So if you are just starting a plumbing business and need money for it, that could be a problem. However, a personal loan requires a reasonable credit score or you may have to pay additional interest.

Unofficial Loan

If you take out an unofficial loan, you will have to pay zero percent interest, which can be very beneficial in the initial stages. Let us say you have family or friends who are willing to support you financially by giving you a loan to buy the equipment and manage the workflow. In this case, you can easily consider it, and the two of you can set the repayment schedule accordingly. Make sure that you repay the installments according to the plan so that your relationship or friendship with them does not suffer.

Unsecured Business Plan

This is also one of the most convenient options for plumbers as it offers a flexible and secure prospect of repayment. It also provides you with options such as long-term and short-term loans that you can choose depending on the business plan that you want to implement. However, it is a prerequisite that you have an excellent personal or business credit score.

Asset Loan

An asset-based loan is a popular way to get a small business loan, and requires that you have some assets or collateral to get the loan for it. Asset-based loans can be a good choice for buying equipment and upgrading your tools. You can also use this loan to buy a van or update your inventory. You can borrow 50-88% of your assets with this loan.

I’d just like to send a little thank you note. After months of a variety of plumbing problems, you saved my pipes. After the team you sent was done with their work, sure enough, my drains were draining perfectly. I’m very grateful and I’ll certainly be recommending your plumbing services to my friends!

Here’s my honest feedback; Royal Flush Plumbing has saved me thousands of dollars in repair costs in my business. Water from the sink and toilets is no longer leaking and is holding up well.

Very honest and professional service at a great price. Matt and the team were called to fix another plumbers dodgy (& expensive) job and completed on time with minimal fuss. Would definitely go directly to Matt first and would recommend others to do too – you wont be disappointed!

Royal Flush is far more than a plumbing service and repair company, they are people that care.
They care about the well-being of my business and family home. The professionalism and high quality of work is the best I’ve seen...

Friendly, honest and absolutely a pleasure to deal with. We had a leak in the ceiling from a bathroom upstairs and we received great advice and service. The team knew exactly what the issue was and was able to sort us out quickly. I highly recommend Royal Flush Plumbing and will use them again. Thanks!

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
