Franchise Info

more than loft ladders

More Than Loft Ladders (MTLL) provides high quality loft solutions across the UK, from loft ladders and hatches, to loft boarding and insulation.  By taking advantage of unused space in homes, we make homes bigger at a fraction of the cost of a builder.

More Than Loft Ladders started out in Bolton back in 2007. Since then, the company has grown from a small, local outfit into a truly national brand with a network of loft ladder installers throughout the UK. More than 25,000 of the nation’s homeowners have chosen MTLL to fit loft ladders, boarding and lighting to better organise the space under their roofs.

Importantly, though, MTLL has always stayed true to its roots, choosing to grow by recruiting trusted, local franchise partners in every region. These local business owners, all operating under the More Than Loft Ladders brand, make sure each customer gets the same, consistent high standard of service and care.

The demand

Almost every home in the UK needs more storage, but what many people forget is the unused space in their own homes – and that’s the need that More Than Loft Ladders can satisfy. Every house type is a potential customer - new homes with little or no storage space, smaller homes that people downsize to, families with new children outgrowing the spare bedroom, older people who need safe access to their loft or the growing number of home workers who need additional storage space for their paperwork.

 In short - there are 25 million houses in the UK who would benefit from More Than Loft Ladders.

“More Than Loft Ladders is such a great idea. It frees up room in the home to store all the possessions we seem to amass. What’s more, it’s a far safer place to store items than a garage or a shed. For some customers, it’s made the difference between moving to a new house or staying put. Imagine that, spending just a few hundred pounds to save the hundreds of thousands of pounds it can take to move to a bigger house.” Kelly Hobbs, Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield Franchisee

The Opportunity

MTLL is now looking for franchisees across the UK.  Most franchisees start as a "one man band" so would be hands-on with the installation etc as well as working on the development of the business. However, are also open to this or someone who wants to start with a more ‘managed’ approach.

This is a scalable opportunity that allows you to develop your business into a multi-van operation with a team of installers.

We’re looking for passionate people with big dreams and an entrepreneurial spirit to get in touch with us about investing and becoming our next franchise partner.

“I’ve been blown away by just how popular the More Than Loft Ladders concept is. I’ve never been quiet since the outset. There’s no seasonal dip, I’m busy all year round and it’s constant work that’s not governed by the weather. More Than Loft Ladders operates in a niche market, but it offers a solution that millions of homeowners need. And we’re always competitive on price.”  Steve Salter, Leicestershire Franchisee
