Here’s what they had to say…
What was it that attracted you to join The Timber Doctor business?
Over the years we have completed DIY restoration projects, built our own home, made musical instruments, Polynesian wood carvings and restoration work- this business seemed like the perfect opportunity to earn great money while doing what we have enjoyed doing for years.
What did you do prior to becoming a Timber Doctor?
Nigel worked in construction, and Kerstin is completing her second degree at university.
What territory will you manage?
We will be operating The Timber Doctor business in the Gold Coast North Region.
What do you hope to achieve during your time as a Timber Doctor?
Meeting amazing people while offering a fantastic service, and become the trusted brand for timber repairs.
What was it about The Timber Doctor franchise that appealed to you ?
Doing something we love which is working with wood, being able to restore things and bring new life to things. Also being able to work together on running a business, while raising our family.
What advice would you give to someone looking to buy a Timber Doctor franchise?
If it feels correct trust yourself and go for it!
The government has a free franchising course to help you understand franchises and if it’s right for you.
Also, seek professional advice.
