Potential Agents FAQ

Thinking About Becoming A Trusty Sheds Agent & Adding A New Income Stream To Your Business? Here are some Things You Might Want To Know


  1. 1
    How big is the area I service?

    That generally depends on the area you live in. We find anything more than about 30kms is a big ask for an agent to travel to just to quote on a small carport. Also, if it’s an area outside of what you usually work in and are not known in, people won’t call you anyway.

  2. 2
    Do I get my own territory where I’m the only agent?

    Yes you do but you are also welcome to sell anywhere in Australia to people you know. You just can’t advertise in other areas.

  3. 3
    What happens if someone rings head office for a quote when I have already provided a quote?

    Great question. Unlike other companies, if someone calls head office, we will get all the details and quote it for you. Then you’re sent a copy of the quote with the clients details so you can follow up and quote on the concrete and build. The commission is yours.

  4. 4
    What skills do I need to have to become an agent?

    Almost anyone can be an agent. If you have an existing business with existing clients, and you’re willing to fill out our easy to use templates, act in a timely manner to get quotes finalised, you’re on the right track. The biggest thing is customer service. Good old fashioned “What can I do to help you?”

  5. 5
    Why do you provide quotes so quickly?

    No one likes to wait. Getting a quote done quickly is part of a process that shows the client we care and we want their business. The first step is talking to them to make sure we’re doing the best shed for them to suit their needs and budget.

  6. 6
    Can I use my own preferred suppliers to do things like electrical and plumbing work?

    Yes and for windows also. We encourage you to network and shop locally. Work in with local suppliers to help each other as much as you can.

  7. 7
    How am I going to be advertised?

    We have an online marketing including Google and Facebook ads. All agents advertise in their own area as they are the people known in their area. We generally piggyback on other ads we do by adding the Trusty Sheds logo and a simple “Let us remove the stress from the supply, concreting and construction of your new shed.”

  8. 8
    Can I create my own advertisements for the local community?

    Sure although it needs to be approved by our head office. We’ve never knocked one back yet.

  9. 9
    How much support do I get from head office if I have a question about quoting?

    We are 100% behind you and the client. If you need help or your client has questions then just call us.We’ll sort it for you.

  10. 10
    How often do I get paid?

    We pay our agents their commission on the 7th of every month.
