WHAT DO FRANCHISEES DO? Local Assist predominately provides emergency trade services to the public as part of an insurance claim however we are also involved in maintenance work such as boiler servicing and general property repairs.

What is home emergency cover? Home emergency cover typically covers events such as your boiler breaking down,blocked drains or electrical failure. An engineer or electrician will visit and their work will be paid for by the insurer. It’s different from a standard home insurance policy which only covers damage to your home and belongings.

What does home emergency insurance cover?  Home emergency policies vary considerably depending on how much you pay and the level of cover provided.Depending on the policy, home emergency cover will protect you against some, or all, of the following events:

  • Boiler breakdown 
  • Central heating failure
  • Loss of hot water
  • Plumbing problems
  • Burst pipes
  • Blocked drains
  • Electrical failure
  • Roof damage caused by extreme weather
  • Security issues such as broken doors and windows
  • Lost keys
  • Pest infestations
We currently receive thousands of calls each month from people making a home insurance claim. Our Contact Centre team log the call on our bespoke IT system,ensure the policyholder has insurance cover in place and then pass the work onto our franchisees or subcontractors (where we currently have no franchisees in the local area).

We provide our franchisees with access to our IT system via their smart phones which provides the details of the job including the date and time of the appointment, the nature of the work that is required and amount being paid for the initial site visit.

Once the work is complete the system also allows the franchisee to obtain the customer sign off and create an invoice directly from site meaning our franchisees get paid very quickly. In the event that additional work is required that is not covered by the customer’s home emergency insurance policy the Local Assist franchisee can provide a quote to the customer and charge the customer directly for any extra work they would like doing
