Why Choose Us

PestControl.co.uk logo: 'Local Experts, Affordable Prices'

So, you're thinking about getting in to the pest control business, are you? You might be thinking something along the lines of, "why do I need PestControl.co.uk, or any company, to help me? Why shouldn't I just do it myself?"

That's a good question and if you’ve never run a business before you might not realise all the things you’ll need to do to get your business through the first 3 years (1/3 of all new businesses fail in the first 3 years). Here are some of the benefits that a PestControl.co.uk franchise brings.

Proven Business Model

We developed, tested and improved our business model for 12 months before we launched it. This meant that when our first franchisee joined us, we were confident in our business model. Sure, we had to prove that we could put it into practice (the franchisee had no experience in the pest control industry) but fast forward 18 months and he has just bought his first house. With every franchisee that has joined us since, we have proved that if you work hard and follow our formula, you too can build a successful and profitable business.

Brand recognition

PestControl.co.uk is a respected part of the pest control industry with one of the most recognisable and memorable brands, so by joining us you will have instant credibility. The PestControl.co.uk brand helps open doors and enables you to secure jobs and contracts from new customers.

Commercial Contracts

We work hard to bring in national commercial contracts from which you can benefit, and which you would be unlikely to have access to starting on your own from scratch.


Our phone system routes all your calls and provides you with valuable call information. Our IT systems enable you to invoice in seconds and take payment by card at the end of the job. Our other systems cover quotations, treatment reports, health & safety, method statements, accounting, payroll, in fact everything you'll need to run your business. This means that as soon as you've finished your training you can focus on winning jobs, carrying out the work and invoicing customers.


During the initial training program you will learn everything you need to know to be a professional pest control technician and run a successful business. Post training, we are available 24 hours a day to support you with advice and answer any questions. Although you are working for yourself, you will never be alone.

As you can see, even if you know how to run a business or are already in the pest control industry, there are still major benefits to becoming a PestControl.co.uk franchisee.

We take care of the complicated and time consuming parts of running a successful business, such as administration systems, marketing & negotiating with suppliers. This leaves you free to spend your day winning jobs and carrying out work. The power of a national brand combined with our low cost business model ensures you're one step ahead of the competition.

As a franchise business, it's in our interest to ensure you are, and continue to be, successful, as our income is directly related to yours. Our extensive training program and continuing support results in confident franchisees, who are always up to date with the latest knowledge and skills.

Of course, you could start your own pest control business from scratch, but building a successful pest control business requires more than just training, a van and some equipment. You’ll be doing it all alone, without a known brand or reputation. It's doable of course, but why make things so hard for yourself? Indeed several of our franchisees were already running their own pest control businesses, but could see the benefits that a PestControl.co.uk franchise offers and have reaped the rewards since making the switch.

Book a Discovery Day

Of course we don't expect you to make a decision right now as to whether you would like to join our franchise. We think it would be a good idea to come over to our head office so you can meet us and we can meet you, and you can get an idea of what it would be like to work as a pest controller.

That's why we offer discovery days where you can do just that, free of charge and with no commitment. If you'd like to book a discovery day spot, or find out more, feel free to get in touch with James Read, our Franchise Manager on 0845 875 0035 or email: franchise@pestcontrol.co.uk.
