Buy The Best Pest Control Business: Lessons From The NPMA Consumer Guide

Buy the Best Pest Control Business Lessons from the NPMA Consumer Guide

Want to buy a pest control business? In today’s post, we discuss how the NPMA’s “Tips on Finding a Pest Management Professional” can be used to identify the best pest control brands to buy in 2020.

How To Buy A Pest Control Business With The Right Credentials?

“Look for qualified and licensed pest control professionals and companies that are members of national, state, or local pest management associations,” states the NPMA website.

As with the rest of the NPMA’s tips, this one is helpful for consumers and prospective franchise owners alike. Just as the consumer wants to be sure that they’re working with licensed professionals to get quality service, investors want to make sure they’re partnering up with brands who’ve earned official seals of approval, for several reasons:

  • Increases consumer trust, which equates to bigger brand authority, loyalty, and sales
  • Indicates the presence of proven systems and industry-approved training protocols
  • Evidences leading market position that new brands struggle to achieve

In addition to being members of the National Pest Management association, Pestmaster is a proud partner of:

  • The International Franchise Association (IFA)
  • General Services Administration (GSA)
  • Professional Services Council (PSC)
  • International Right of Way Association (IRQA)
  • Integrated Pest Management Institute (IPM)
  • The Association of Mosquito Control of America (AMCA), and many other fine organizations!

Do Not Buy A Pest Control Business Based Solely On Low Start-Up Cost

“Buy value, not price,” writes the NPMA. “Do not make a purchasing decision based solely on the lowest cost.”

Most marketing teams trot this rationale out to defend prohibitive entry costs, insisting that you only get what you pay for! And while that’s true enough in most cases, we’re not advising you to default to the most expensive option, either. Money matters, of course, but you cannot base a pest control business decision entirely on a price tag.

Consider the costs of the pest control business together with the value of the opportunity. Pestmaster offers a perfect blend of low start-up investment and enduring business value. Consider the following:

  • You can buy a pest control business for $30,000 to $85,000. This includes the franchise fee, cost of training, and everything else you need to start serving your community. That’s less than half of what you’d pay for some of the other big names listed by Entrepreneur magazine.
  • Pestmaster owners receive top-notch training. Even without experience, our training program and certification support transform newcomers into seasoned experts in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques in 3 to 6 weeks.
  • Leverage the Pestmaster brand name from day-one. From the moment you open your doors, our 40+ year reputation for success and high-quality brand website drive customers to your business.
  • Pestmaster owners get exclusive access to valuable government contracts. We are GSA contract holders, which means Pestmaster owners get exclusive bidding rights to high-value contracts for municipal, state, and federal government clients. Our franchisees were awarded $47 million in service contracts over the past 36 months!

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster of Central New York

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”
