Consulting For Home Service Contractors

Consulting for home service companies

In this “Be Elite In The Trades” guide, our Master Consultant outlines why the country’s most elite home service operators align with an industry-leading consulting firm and how Elite Trades has elevated itself to the best-in-class solution for plumbers, HVAC, electrical, water conditioning, and water well contractors looking for a strategic business consultant.

Home Service Consultants Supercharge Growth

Managing a business in the ever-changing industries of plumbing, HVAC, electrical, or any home service industry demands more than just operational expertise; it requires world-class strategic foresight and a robust toolbelt of business acumen.

Home service contractors and other trades service companies will be successful in their own right without the help of a consultant; however, the learning curve is shortened substantially, and top and bottom line growth is supercharged with the help of a good consultant.

“Being a good plumber or HVAC tech and showing up on time isn’t going to cut it in today’s day and age,” says Elite Trades CEO, Eric Smith. “To be relevant in your market and be a company the best tradesmen in a market want to be with, you must be a world-class operator, marketer, recruiter, trainer, and leader.”

Elite Trades stands as the leading consultancy for the most successful, operationally elite, and profitable home service companies across the US, offering unparalleled expertise to remain nimble in the complex market, drive significant growth, and build a culture that lasts for generations.

The Unique Elite Trades Consulting Approach

Elite Trades is synonymous with excellence, guiding top-tier home service companies to dominate their markets through innovative strategies and impeccable execution. In a day and age where very few practice what they preach, Elite Trades towers over the typical plumbing, HVAC, or electrical business consultant through its private ownership and operation of multiple multi-trade home service businesses.

Hands-on Implementation

Unlike typical consultants who commonly sit behind a desk and offer dusty advice, Elite Trades prides itself on one of its core values: Action.

“As a consultant, it’s easy to point at a problem and say that it needs to be fixed. I think that’s the root reason why I get insulted when someone calls me their consultant. Yes, we wear the consultant hat but pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves after we have pointed the finger. We have a strong affinity for action and implementing solutions. We don’t just tell you what needs to be done; we show you how and help execute these strategies alongside your team,” Smith says.

Customized Strategies for Home Service Business Consulting

One size fits all consulting for plumbers, HVAC businesses, electrical contractors, and all multi-trade home service companies flat out doesn’t work. Recognizing that no two businesses are the same nor are two markets, we tailor our approach to meet the specific needs and challenges of our client’s business, ensuring optimal effectiveness.

“Custom tailoring our consulting services to the specific goals and needs of our clients and their plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, well, or water conditioning company is the foundation for how we’re able to offer a 100% money-back guarantee.”

Navigating 2024’s Business Climate

In the ever-evolving landscape of 2024, working with industry-leading consultants is not just an advantage—it’s a necessity. Elite Trades prepares your business to not only meet the challenges of today but excel in the foreseeable future.

What should the industry-leading consultants be focused on in 2024?

  • Softening overall demand for home services
  • Increasing costs of materials and labor
  • Recruiting the upcoming crop of apprentices
  • Changes to digital marketing and the impact AI is having on it
  • And many other plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, water conditioning and home service issues.

Elite Trades Specializes In Multi-Trade Consulting

Largely the consulting Elite Trades provides HVAC contractors with is the same as we apply in our plumbing contractors and electrical contractors, but there are some specific consulting niches that individual trades require.

Plumbing Business Consulting:

Elite Trades works with some of the most successful and dominant plumbing brands in the country and has influence in their operations, marketing, recruiting, training, sales, and all other major facets of day-to-day operations. Working side by side with plumbing company owners, Elite Trades is able to help implement industry best practices that produce guaranteed results. 

HVAC Business Consulting:

The HVAC business is the cornerstone of many home service companies and from a consulting perspective requires the unique skill set that only Elite Trades can provide. We work hand in hand with HVAC contractors to work through some of the most common sales, marketing, and operational challenges HVAC contractors face due to workforce shortages and the swings in demand. The turnkey systems Elite Trades offers help HVAC companies dial in efficiency, capitalize on opportunities, sell maintenance club members, and drive top revenue and bottom-line profits. The impact we have on HVAC companies allows our clients to not only grow their business but to be in a position to scale. 

Electrical Company Consulting:

No matter if your electrical division is a tuck-in trade or the core of your home service business, the electrical business consultants at Elite Trades help build pricing, procedures, and all other tools it takes to excel in this space. Electrical, although commonly considered one of the major 3 trades, is unique in many aspects due to the preventive and want-based lead generation and long lifecycle of electrical systems. 

Water Well Services Consulting:

Consultants that specialize in well drilling and water well services are unicorns. At Elite Trades, we specialize in the water well industry and help apply our consulting strategies that in turn build highly profitable and advanced water well service businesses. We work in lockstep with well contractors to develop systems and procedures that allow owner-operators of well service companies to work on their business instead of in it. 

Water Conditioning Contractors:

Nothing is more important than clear, clean drinking water, and Elite Trades has been guiding water conditioning contractors with our consulting services on the latest sales, marketing, and purification technologies and helping develop competitive market strategies. For water conditioning and filtration companies wanting to make a real difference in their market dominance, Elite Trades provides the unfair advantage. 

Sewer and Drain Replacement Consulting:

For many plumbing contractors, the big-ticket plumbing replacement lies deep underground… in sewer and underground drain replacement. From open cut sewer excavation to the most advanced methods for sewer pipe relining, Elite Trades not only has the hands-on industry experience but the insights and innovation to help any client looking for consulting to excel in sewer and drain replacement. Elite Trades offers insights into innovative maintenance techniques and customer service excellence that enhance reliability and trust.

Technology and Software Consulting

In today’s fast-paced and tech-driven world, integrating and fully optimizing advanced software solutions like ServiceTitan, Housecall Pro, and other industry-specific tools can be a game-changer for plumbing, HVAC, and electrical companies. A skilled plumbing, HVAC, electrical or well & water conditioning business consultant can guide you through the intricacies of these platforms, ensuring you leverage their full potential. 

Our Consulting Drives Real-Life Success 

Not only do our clients get paid based on their results from the consulting services we provide, but so do we. This means that when we showcase results and case studies, you can be assured that the results the home service business owners achieve as a result of our consulting services are the real deal. 

Under the guidance of Elite Trades, hundreds of plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, water well, and water conditioning contractors have achieved success due to their industry leadership and proprietary systems, procedures, and other client-only tools.
