Such Exciting Times For Extra Help
We're definitely on a roll ...
Posted on: 25/09/2014 By: Claire Robinson
Extra Help is on a huge high at present, we're definitely on a roll. We are really excited to announce we are now part of the Which? Trusted Trader scheme for Extra Help as a company so covering all our franchisees too ...
For this approval to go ahead, we had to be interviewed by someone from Which? At our offices here in Plymouth. Luckily, we have just gone through the process of being approved by Plymouth City Council for the Buy with Confidence Scheme, so we were well prepared with all our paperwork.
We then had a call from our account manager who asked for ten different clients for them to contact for our approval to go ahead. We passed with flying colours, which is great news!
This is a testimonial from one of our clients for the service they receive in Buckingham:
"Before using Extra-Help I struggled to keep things clean and tidy at home as there are so many things I can no longer physically manage to do. As well as housework, I no longer need to worry about ironing as that gets done as well.
I don't drive and find it difficult to use the buses so as part of my weekly hours, help with transport has really made me much more independent. Having help with shopping or just going out for lunch has meant I can do the things I want to do as opposed to what I used to make do with.
I have a lovely lady who is very friendly and reliable and I would recommend the service to anyone in need of a little help."
We are extremely proud of our team at Extra Help, our brilliant employees in the office, our fantastic franchisees and, of course, our wonderful clients. Without these people on board, Sarah and my vision would not be possible.
Extra Help in North Kent owned by Samantha Davey has just been approved for the Kent County Council trading standards Checkatrade. Well done to you Samantha - it's great to see our franchisees doing so well! Sam came on board with Extra Help at the beginning of the year and definitely shares our passion for Extra Help and the services we provide.
In Plymouth, we are now approved for the Support with Confidence scheme, run by Plymouth Council trading standards. Along with our existing Buy with Confidence approval, we are really chuffed. Things have been really busy here, thank goodness we have Samantha Smith as part to the team now, relieving the pressure on Louise and myself.
Extra Help Milton Keynes also has a new manager called Lauren Grant. Lauren joined the company this month and I'm sure we'll hear all about her in the near future. Lauren will be responsible for the Milton Keynes and Buckingham franchises and will help Sarah to grow and manage them. Welcome to the team Lauren.
