Brett Warren knows all about security. For over a decade he has worked in security screens, doors, and windows, and is the go-to man when it comes to protecting your home. But when it came to the security of his small business, he needed a hand.
After a family health scare two years ago, Brett chose to close down his factory for ‘Action Security Windows and Doors’, and take on a job where he could spend more time at home.
After moving from South Africa in 1997, Brett had left his career in electronics to work in home security – so he was well aware of the risk associated with shifting jobs.
Brett wanted to stay in home security industry so he decided to run a ‘Taskforce Doors & Screens’ franchise. As he says, “…with starting any new business, whether you know the industry or not, there is always stress.”
With the ability to craft his own working hours and workload, Brett only needed one more thing: a van to reach his new clientele. Upon visiting a used-car dealer in Carrum Downs, VIC, the manager pointed to a large GoGetta banner hanging above the building, and assured Brett that he would not find a better support for his new business.
Brett was impressed with the GoGetta service. “It was virtually hassle free,” he says, “I emailed the forms, and got a response in just a few hours.” After his swift and simple initiation into the GoGetta family, Brett was soon renting a secondhand 2008 Renault Master Van and like that, his business was off the ground.
Starting with his equipment on Rent.Grow.Own®, Brett was able to enjoy a much-needed 12 month grace period as he tested the waters with Taskforce. Crafted especially for new businesses, Rent.Grow.Own is the most flexible product on the market today. It’s a low risk equipment funding solution that’s fully adjustable to your circumstances, and actually affordable. The short 12 month agreement gives you total flexibility in your business to preserve working capital, or just trial equipment before committing.
However, Brett’s journey was not without its hiccups. After a particularly slow period in business, he unfortunately struggled to keep up with his payments. Whilst most of the traditional lenders would have taken back the vehicle – or worse, his home – GoGetta didn’t. We spoke with Brett, figured out how we could help, and just over a year later he’s back on his feet. Brett is now working towards ownership and enjoying a generous discount on his weekly payments, with our Go.Own.Plus product.
GoGetta knows that life isn’t perfect, and neither is small business. We’re proud to continue building a support network for Australians who just want to be given a fair go. Brett continues to grow his business from strength to strength, knowing that we are right there behind him.
