It’s always a good sign for any business owner when their business receives plenty of leads. But what happens when these leads go unserviced? It might be hard to believe, but managing unserviced leads is one of our biggest challenges here at Jim’s Group. When leads go unserviced, it means that there are more job requests on the market than franchisees on-hand who are available to service them.
Over the last 12 months, Jim’s Group received 242,283 unserviced leads. For those searching for a secure business opportunity, that’s great news. It means that there’s plenty of opportunities to find work within the group and that the Jim’s Group divisions are in high demand. In this article, we’ll share with you the 20 Jim’s divisions that receive the most unserviced leads. If you’re looking for an exciting and promising franchise opportunity in Australia in 2021, time to tune in.
20. JIM’S HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REMOVAL
Hazardous material removal is something you should never attempt to do on your own. These jobs require specific equipment and can pose safety risks if done incorrectly. From mould treatment to asbestos removal, the technicians at Jim’s Hazardous Material Removal get called in by customers for all sorts of reasons.
Mould growth is a common problem that will manifest at some point in most homes and properties. That’s why mould remediation is one of the most popular services at Jim’s Hazmat Removal. Mould can grow on almost any surface, but it’s particularly attracted to those places with high levels of condensation (for example, a bathroom). Having mould in your home can make you very sick, so it’s a problem that you should address ASAP.
19. JIM’S DIGGERS
We love a good DIY project here in Australia, which is why the services provided by Jim’s Diggers franchisees are always highly sought after. Every successful backyard landscaping project or home renovation project starts off with a good, blank canvas, which is exactly what Jim’s Diggers specialises in.
SITE CLEARING & LEVELLING
For those of us who aren’t experts in the whole landscaping biz, it’s usually easier to leave the heavy work to the professionals. Jim’s Diggers brings fully trained, licensed, and certified franchisees to a job, meaning that you get both the excavation equipment required to clear your site and also a skilled operator to do the job. It’s a great deal, which is why this service is highly requested from customers.
18. JIM’S BUILDING INSPECTIONS
The excitement of purchasing a new property is one of the best feelings out there. Purchasing a home is a big commitment, both emotionally and financially. That’s why you want to make sure that the property is what you think it is, and that there aren’t any deep-rooted issues lurking beneath its shiny surface. Homebuyers want to feel confident in the property that they’re purchasing, which is why it comes at no surprise that Jim’s Building Inspections is one of our most popular services that receives a high amount of unserviced leads.
RESIDENTIAL BUILDING INSPECTIONS
Building inspections are recommended for a wide range of individuals, including home buyers, vendors, property investors, and property managers. Many property defects are invisible to an untrained eye, so hiring a qualified building inspector to complete an inspection and to write up a property report is one of the smartest things you can do during your home-buying journey.
17. JIM’S POOL CARE
Like all amenities, pools need to be regularly maintained. With our sunny weather and long summers, it comes at no surprise to learn that Australia has the highest rate of pools per capita in the world. It’s safe to say, then, that the franchisees over at Jim’s Pool Care don’t often struggle to find work.
Using state-of-the-art water testing and treatments, Jim’s Pool Care’s skilled technicians will keep your water looking bright and sparkly all year round. Since pools require regular and ongoing maintenance, these franchisees’ existing customers keep them busy throughout the year. There’s always more pools to clean, which means that many of the leads received at Jim’s Pool Care sadly go unserviced.
16. JIM’S WINDOW & PRESSURE CLEANING
Window cleaning and pressure cleaning are two jobs that require both patience and time, two things that many of us just don’t have.The services on offer at Jim’s Window & Pressure Cleaning are in high demand by both residential and commercial customers all year around, so it’s a great business opportunity for people who are looking to stay busy.
A freshly cleaned window can do wonders for the overall look of your home or business. Windows get dirty quickly, which is why regular cleaning and maintenance is essential. From shop front windows to apartment windows, the team at Jim’s Window Cleaning are able to do it all.
Driveways, pavings, brickwork, outdoor timber, pergolas and tiled areas all pick up a lot of dirt, grime, wear and tear from being exposed to the elements. You’d be amazed at how different your home can look when a good pressure wash blasts these exteriors back to their original condition. And with experience across a range of different services, there’s very little that our Jim’s Pressure Cleaning experts can’t remove.
15. JIM’S ELECTRICAL
Unless you are a registered electrical contractor, it’s illegal to do electrical work in your home. No matter how minor you think the job may be, it’s just not worth the risk. For this reason, our team of electricians at Jim’s Electrical are in high demand all year around. If you’re a licensed electrician who’s looking to start your own business, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Accidents happen, whether we like it or not. When glass shatters or breaks, it needs to be attended to urgently so as to not cause another accident.

Aside from repairs, Jim’s Glass can install shower screens, mirrors, shopfronts, and much more.
When glass breaks, it not only creates a dangerous environment, it can also create a security risk.

10. TERMITE & PEST CONTROL
There’s nothing worse than uncovering pests or termites in your property. Not only are termites and pests unsanitary, they can also cause some serious damage to your property. In many cases, store-bought treatments just won’t cut it, which is why the services offered at Jim’s Termite & Pest Control are frequently in demand.
Termite problems oftentimes do not manifest until the damage has already been done. That’s why it’s important to be proactive. Ideally, termite inspections should be carried out once a year. The high demand for termite inspections means that these leads often go unserviced.
END OF LEASE PEST CONTROL
Some tenancy agreements require an ‘End of Lease Pest Control’ service to be carried out. This usually involves an inspection and a treatment. Unwanted pests at the end of your tenancy will make it extremely unlikely that you’ll get your bond back, so an End of Lease Pest Control service is always a wise move.
COMMERCIAL PEST CONTROL
One of the most popular services at Jim’s Pest Control is Commercial Pest Control. Australia has strict OH&S rules, which means that there’s always demand for workplace inspections and treatments. From restaurants to factories, the team at Jim’s Pest Control are experienced in providing high quality pest control solutions to a range of industries.
