(PRWEB) July 3, 2008
On the 16 June 2008, HomeServe, one of the UK's leading national home emergency services, launched a consumer brand for the first time in the Company's fifteen year history.
The rebrand includes a complete overhaul of their website in response to increased consumer demand for sourcing and booking tradesmen on the Internet. From tree surgeons to emergency CORGI heating engineers, the new site allows customers to book a job for a morning, afternoon or evening slot and pay for it online through a simplified shopping basket process.
Customers can also buy home emergency policies online to protect against unforeseen home breakdowns. HomeServe continue to launch new Cover products that allow consumers to tailor their options, from Single types of Cover to bundled packages.
The new website also offers a useful Advice section with DIY troubleshooting and problem solving information. This includes a series of easy to use, downloadable DIY videos designed to guide consumers through maintenance and repair tasks such as unblocking a sink, fixing squeaky floorboards and hanging a door. In response to the growing consumer appetite to become more 'green', the new website also provides guidance on making homes more eco-friendly.
Commenting on the rebrand and launch of the new HomeServe website, Jon Florshiem, CEO of HomeServe Membership, said: "The Homeserve business has changed and grown considerably. As we embark on our launch direct to consumers, it was an opportune time to unveil a modern and innovative new brand. As well as offering great functionality such as online tradesmen bookings and policy purchase, our new website is also packed with useful information, hints and tips."
Every forty seconds a Homeserve engineer comes to the rescue of a British household.
With over 5,000 directly employed and sub-contracted engineers, Homeserve is a national emergency home repair service backed by a 24 hour claims handling and repair network.
Homeserve also offers insurance cover for plumbing, drains, electrical wiring and gas central heating. It has over 6.3 million policy members in the UK and a further 1.8 million in the USA, France and Spain.
