We assemble furniture so you don’t have to.

Assembly Opportunities

We've changed our outlook

The Covid-19 pandemic has turned the world upside down. Online shopping via Amazon and so on have changed the way we shop, the way we spend our leisure and working time, possibly for ever. Some jobs won't be viable and lots of people will be looking for something new.  Whatever you do, you need a job that's enjoyable, lucrative and has career prospects.

From what we've seen, demand for the service we provide has increased faster than we expected,  and we need to rethink how we meet our customers' needs,  through greater resilience, flexibility yet still retain the high quality and consistency of the service we provide.

During the pandemic we have made significant changes to how we will deliver our service as we can try to meet changes in our customers' needs and the ever increasing demand.

We also have some exciting opportunities with existing customers and other revenue streams which are growing and currently under exploited.

Flat Pack Amigos are now looking to expand the business via developing a franchise network.

Phase 1 of the process (to complement our existing network) is to recruit 12 regional franchisees, who if suitable may progress to being master franchisees (think regional manager). So we are not just looking for good hard working assemblers,  we're looking for something more.

You'll need to be an ambitious self starter, with a 'can do' attitude and a willingness to follow tried and tested working practices which deliver a high quality service...... and if that's not all, be capable of running your own business.

For your first 1-2 years you'll concentrate on running your own franchise building flat pack furniture, and being the best assembler you can be, and we'll help you as much as we can on that successful journey.

Phase 2 is when we'll appointment the master franchisees to develop other franchisees within their region.

We won't run before we can walk and so expect to recruit our first few franchisees during 2022/2023, so we can give them enough attention and help to ensure they are successful. This will also help us refine our franchisee system. These first franchisees will have more beneficial terms as a result.

 

So why become a franchisee?

Well we've done the hard work for you:

  • you don't need to review all the legal ramifications of what you're doing
  • you don't need to learn on the job (ie make costly mistakes)
  • we will provide you with robust processes to follow and things to do to ensure each job you do runs smoothly and your business has the best chance of thriving
  • our training and support is the most comprehensive out there (in fact I don't think any other company formally trains their assemblers)
  • We have a series of ways of working to prevent you making silly mistakes and techqniues to work quickly without cutting corners (you'll be like Mr Miyagi in the Karate Kid).
  • we'll provide genuine information so you can build a S.M.A.R.T.  business plan (Specific, Measurable,  Achievable, Realistic & Timely)
  • we'll provide opportunities for growth that going it alone won't.


Not only that, we'll provide you with well paid work too!

 

What you can earn?

In simple terms, if you earn £200 a day working 5 days a week, for 50 weeks a year, that's

£200 x 5 x 50 = £50,000

less costs of £10,000-£20,000

that's £30,000-£40,000

Yes, you read that right!

However there are some basic issues to deal with:

1) How do I earn £200 a day?

The answer to this is quite simple, learn how to assemble furniture quickly and to a high standard, right first time every time. This will take most people 2-3 years of doing it full time to master. The techniques, processes and training we provide will help you achieve this goal.

2) How do I get £50,000 worth of customers each year?

It's our aim to offer each franchisee circa £20,000-£30,000 of work each year, within 2-3 years of joining us, it may be more. We will explain how we source our work and the opportunities we have if you sign the Non Disclosure Agreement after you have enquired. We will also explain where the best places to look for additional work are, to top this up which you can exploit but we can't exploit for you.

 

Building a Malm Chest Quickly

In the video below we show you how quickly you can build a Malm chest, and how this ties in with making £200 a day. In this video I use 8 of the techniques we teach to build this item so quickly.

In simple terms, if you charge £10 to build this item, and  you can build 5 in one hour, that's £50 per hour. If you average 6 earning hours per day, you can then generate £300 each day, we take a third for sourcing the work for you leaving you with £200. Obviously if you have sourced the work yourself you would get to keep all £300!

Obvously not every item you build will be an Ikea 2 drawer Malm bedside table, this is purely for illustration, our techinques help you build all items quickly.

Why we think our support is worth it:

Assembling flat pack furniture is relatively easy, straightforward and enjoyable for someone with the right skills, personality, ability and mindset. Often it's not like working at all. However, like most industries there are many pitfalls and unexpected things a novice will face which are expensive and could destroy your confidence. Therefore ruining a potentially lucrative and enjoyable career before it has started.

For example:

  • Taking on a job that is too big or complex without realizing it. Having a great induction, training and support can ensure you never face these costly events.
  • Simply putting a bed or wardrobe in the wrong place in a room could land you in court with costly ramifications. Missing or overlooking a seemingly inconsequential step could open you up for unlimited liability. Awareness of these issues is better raised via training, than via learning on the job. At the end of the day when you assemble furniture, your customers (and their dependents, children etc) are putting their safety in your hands. So this is not a job to be taken lightly.
  • Bad customers are out there and they will take advantage of you (deliberately or without realising). These people are not necessarily bad people but they can ruin your revenue and turn a profitable business into a loss making one, and make you a busy fool. Our support and working practices will stop that happening to you, either by providing techniques to manage them properly or avoiding them altogether.


Fortunately, most customers are very nice people who will pay you promptly, provided you are polite, personable, do a good job and are rigorously professional in how and what you do. Not everyone will pay you straight away, and you need to be disciplined, polite and professional in the way you ensure you get paid on time for every job you do.

Our Customers

 

I can assure you, there are plenty of very good assemblers out there who are busy fools working 6-7 days a week earning £10k-£15k a year because they haven't positioned themselves properly and do not have the systems in place that we (and our franchisees) do. For these people their businesses are not only running their lives, they're wasting the money that they have earned.

As a sole assembler, following our systems you can earn £30k-£40k working 5 days a week, and have the opportunity to grow your business into something much much more.

However you must be realistic, you won't earn this sort of money in your first year, second year maybe, but in your third year provided you follow our system and work diligently, we think you will. Once you've done it and got there, you have a job and income for life that no one can take away from you. That is freedom, security and one of the most liberating things you can achieve. I know,  I've been doing it for 18 years.

Thank you,
