  • Do I need a seperate company for my commercial inspection services?

    It’s up to you. Some inspectors add their commercial services to an existing company, while others prefer to keep it separate. Each approach has pros and cons, which are reviewed in the following article.

    Getting Started as a Commercial Inspector: Determining Your Business Structure

    NOTE: The main drawback to starting a separate business is its effect on the workload (i.e., financials and website maintenance), start-up costs (branding, marketing material, website, etc.), and internet marketing. The last-mentioned concern is for Google My Business which only allows one business listing under a single address unless the businesses are under unrelated business categories (i.e., inspections and clothing alterations).

  • How do I start landing jobs?

    The first step is informing others that you offer commercial property inspection services. Residential inspectors or those in related fields should tell their existing client base of their new commercial inspection offerings. Next, create an online presence and make sure you have a listing in CCPIA’s directory. CCPIA recommends FastSite4U for affordable website services.
