Local Heroes has launched Hero Cashback, a new initiative for independent traders that rewards them with £200 for every boiler installation customer they bring to the Local Heroes business.

Available to traders signed up with Local Heroes, the initiative gives tradespeople access to boilers at lower prices, where savings can then be passed to their customers through competitive rates.

To date, traders who undertake boiler installations generated through Local Heroes receive the lead commission free. However, Hero Cashback sees this benefit taken a step further by rewarding traders who bring boiler installation customers to Local Heroes with a cashback of £200 per customer.  

There is no limit attached to the number of cashbacks and Local Heroes data shows that in a typical Winter month eight boilers are installed, meaning a Local Heroes trader could make £1,600 extra from this initiative. 

Also, as the boiler is purchased by the customer through Local Heroes upon accepting the quote from the trader, it helps eliminate outlay and reduce financial risk if the job was cancelled.

Boilers are available nationwide through the Local Heroes delivery network, available for pick-up on day of installation, and every boiler comes with a 12-month British Gas-backed guarantee.

Camilla Benitz, Managing Director of Local Heroes, said: “Local Heroes was created to introduce traders to customers, to help provide a regular flow of business in their area. However, we recognise it’s an unsettling time and traders are under growing pressure to keep competitive, maintain a healthy cash flow and to grow their business.

"Hero Cashback provides local traders with benefits often only experienced by big business. Our network of partners will give them access to boilers at low prices and nationwide availability, while also earning extra money through the cash reward scheme.”

Cashback is provided at the end of 90 days and there is no commission for the traders on these jobs.
