How our website packages work

How our Website Packages work.

You are purchasing a Website + Licence Package of your choice.
What you get with your website...
...the Demo site as you see it with the following changes:
Options and Added Extras
Choosing a Licence Package
The licence that you choose will depend mostly on two things – the number of outlets that you have and whether or not you want us to manage changes to your site. In our experience, tool hire business owners want to focus on what they are good at – tool hire – and leave the website stuff to us. So when they want to make a change or have an issue, they just ring or email us and we do it for them there and then. However that is not the case for all, hence why we have created different licence packages.

Every licence comes with hosting and support. It also comes with a content licence. This content licence allows you to use the Tool Hire Websites database content on your site for the duration of that licence. In effect you are paying a one off set up fee to develop your site just how you want it – your design, your tools, your pricing and hiring structure. You then own your site design and structure – but you hire the functionality and content. It is this functionality and content which is covered in the annual licence.
Exclusivity
This is the opportunity to hold exclusivity over a set road mileage from a specific store. In practice what this means is that we would not provide our website services to another tool hire business within a set distance from your store. Distance is measured by road and not radius. It should be noted that exclusivity for our website services and our email marketing services are provided and sold separately as some tool hire businesses chose to purchase the email marketing service without having the website service.

You can purchase exclusivity for as many stores as you like. Exclusivity is calculated individually for each business and depends on a number of factors such as geographic location, population density, overlap between stores and distance from other tool hire businesses.
Adding Pages
The site comes with a main menu which consists of 6 main menu pages (not included the tool menu) and 3 top menu pages. You can have additional standard pages with content added to your site at set up (on either menu or as sub-menu items) at a cost of £17.50 per page. If you require specific functionality to be added to your page eg event calendar, we will provide a quote for that.
Tool Pricing Updates
Our Silver and Gold Licence Packages both come with an annual price update for all your tools. We can provide pricing updates outside of this at a cost of £2 per tool. You can, of course, update prices yourself and a video tutorial will be provided to enable you to do this.
Products - Additional Tools
The website package allows for 200 tools with no additional charge, however you can have as many tools on the site as you like at a cost of £6 per tool in excess of the 200 tools.
Delivery System - Additional Stores
The website package comes with a delivery system for one store. Additional stores can be added at a cost of £60 per store. We will provide you with a spreadsheet for you to populate the charges applied to each of the post code sectors within your delivery area for each store . If you prefer we can do this for you, however there is an additional charge for that of £1 per post code sector.

What you get with your website – details

What you get with your website - details.

Your Branding

We take your company branding (logo, heading, strapline, colours) and merge them into your website so that your site matches your brand identity. The standard branding is set within the confines of the website structure and functionality. Whilst we can make further changes, these are within the realm of our bespoke package and would be priced individually.

Product Changes/Additions

We think that it is really important for your site to provide the correct and specific details about the tools that you hire, and not just generic overviews. So we will provide you with a pre-populated product spreadsheet with all the tool details that you will need. You can select from the tools that you already hire out and add in the details of any that are not on the product spreadsheet. If you prefer we can do this for you, as long as you provide us with the make and model of each of your tools, however there is an additional cost for that (£6 per tool).

The website package allows for 200 tools with no additional charge, however you can have as many tools on the site as you like at a cost of £6 per tool in excess of the 200 tools.

The product spreadsheet will contain the details of each tool and will include Make; Model; Image; Description; Download Documents (optional); Video Demo (optional); Hire Times; Hire Prices; Safety Icons.

Your Product Pricing and Hire Times

Whilst the Demo site has hire times and prices set, it is likely that both your hire times and pricing will be different. You will probably have set hire times for most of your products, however there may be some that you only hire out by the week and other restrictions that only apply to specific individual products. You will be asked to provide this information in the product spreadsheet and we will then implement the hire times and the associated pricing for each product.

Your Delivery System

The delivery charge system (UK only) is based on post code sectors eg LS12 3.. This enables us to set variable delivery charges based on the location of properties within small sector areas. In particular this allows you to be more specific about charges to places which may not be far away as the crow flies, but which take a long time to get to. It also allows us to use one system across multiple stores.

We will provide you with a spreadsheet for you to populate the charges applied to each of the post code sectors within your delivery area. If you prefer we can do this for you, however there is an additional charge for that of £1 per post code sector. If you do wish us to do this you will need to provide us with an overview map indicating the main delivery charge areas.

Delivery System – Additional Stores

The website package comes with a delivery system for one store. Additional stores can be added at a cost of £60 per store. We will provide you with a spreadsheet for you to populate the charges applied to each of the post code sectors within your delivery area for each store . If you prefer we can do this for you, however there is an additional charge for that of £1 per post code sector.

Branding

We take your company branding (logo, heading, strapline, colours) and merge them into your website so that your site matches your brand identity. The standard branding is set within the confines of the website structure and functionality. Whilst we can make further changes, these are within the realm of our bespoke package and would be priced individually.

Automated Hire System

We like to make things easy for your customers to hire from you. The hiring system deployed on the website is very intuitive and follows the standard e-commerce step by step process that we are all used to when making online purchases. Try out the process by making a booking on the Demo site or by watching our demo video on the Websites page. You will see exactly what your customers will see - only your site will be branded for you.

Customer Account Option

Nobody likes to have to repeatedly fill out their address details. So we provide customers with the option of creating an account which captures their information and enables them to log in on subsequent visits thereby saving them time and hassle.

Trade Account Application

If you offer Trade Accounts you can have your trade account application form available for download or we will create it as an online form to fill in.

Discount Offers System

The site is set up to enable you to add a specified discount offer onto any tool/product. These are set at 5% discount step (eg 10%, 15%, 20% etc) but can be any any amount. Products which are allocated a discount will automatically appear on the Special Offers page as well as their usual page.

Coupon System

As well as a discount system you can offer a coupon system where customers (or an individual customer) can be provided with a coupon code which will provide them with a specified level of site wide discount. NOTE: Whilst the Discount Offers System and the Coupon System can be run together, the site is set for this not to happen, so customers who benefit from 15% off a particular tool cannot then get an additional % discount by putting in a Coupon code.

Delivery Charge System

The delivery charge system in the UK is based on post code sectors eg LS12 3.. This enables you to set variable delivery charges based on the location of properties within small sector areas. In particular this allows you to be more specific about charges to places which may not be far away as the crow flies, but which take a long time to get to. It also allows you to use one system across multiple stores.

How we set this up.

We will provide you with a spreadsheet for you to populate the charges applied to each of the post code sectors within your delivery area. We can do this for you, however there is an additional charge for that of £1 per post code sector. If you do wish us to do this you will need to provide us with an overview map indicating the main delivery charge areas.

Delivery System – Additional Stores

The website package comes with a delivery system for one store. Additional stores can be added - see Added Extras. We will provide you with a spreadsheet for you to populate the charges applied to each of the post code sectors within your delivery area for each store . We can do this for you, however there is an additional charge for that of £1 per post code sector.

Your WordPress Website

The site uses the popular WordPress platform and as such has a number of key benefits.

  1. It is easy for you to manage.
  2. As you are not tied into one companies bespoke CRM you can transfer the site to other WordPress hosts if required. NOTE: You will own the structure and design of your site, and hire the functionality and content as part of your licence package.
  3. WordPress is SEO friendly.
  4. It is future proof.

Video demos

Each product comes with the capability of having supporting video demonstrations. Many of the demo site products already have video demos installed.

Multi-store capability

Whether you have 1 store or 6 we can accommodate your needs. Your customers can choose where they want to pick up their tool. The delivery system can be added to each of your stores. Your site comes with 1 store as standard. For details on additional stores please see Added Extras.

E-commerce capability

The site is set up for customers to hire products and to settle payment either at the store or at point of delivery. However payment via the site can be arranged - see Added Extras.

Stock control system

The site comes with a stock control system whereby you input the total number of stock items, and as they are booked out to customers, the site adjusts the availability automatically. Using the sites stock control system is optional.

Hire management system

Each time a booking is made for a product you will receive an email notification (see demo video on Websites page), and the item will be marked a Processing within the management area of the site. You can then mark that as Completed or On-Hold at any time during the sales process eg when the customer picks up or returns the tool. The customer can then receive a notification that the hire is complete. Your site management area will provide you with all the details of orders that are processing, on-hold, and complete, as well as giving you a statistical breakdown.

Social Media links and Social Sharing

We will include links to your  Facebook and/or Twitter pages making it easy for visitors to find you on social media. Not using social media? No problem. We can help you get started. Just give us a call.

We also include Social Sharing which makes it easy for visitors to your website to share what they find on their own social media platforms. So if they like what they see they just click on the relevant icon and share it using their Facebook, Twitter, Reddit etc... You don't need to be using social media to benefit from this.

General and product specific Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Your site as a whole will be registered with all the major search engines and will be optimised so that it is easy to find. In addition each product will be optimised increasing the chances of people finding what you have to offer in your area.

Cookie Law Compliance

Your site will meet all the EU Law requirements for Cookie Law Compliance.

Automated daily backups

Your entire site will be backed up in two locations every day - on our hosts server and on our own cloud based backup.

Training videos on using the website

Each site comes with links to training videos on key site management areas such as adding/changing products, updating pages etc.

Product documentation system

Most tools come with documentation such as specifications, manuals, health and safety. Where these are available they are added to the individual tools and are available on the Download Documents page as well.

UK based secure server

Having worked with a number of server companies (the server is where your website files live and from where they are delivered to the world), and researched many more we now use TsoHosts to host all our websites. The service is excellent as is the speed and reliability. They can also provide us with alternative hosting solutions should you require something different.

Unlimited web page capability

You site comes with the standard set of pages that you see on the Demo site. However you can add as many pages as you like (or we can do it for you - see Added Extras). Video training is provided to demonstrate how to do this if you want to.

Health and Safety product guidance system

All your products come with health and safety guidance in terms of what should be used by the customer when operating the specified tool. The site also comes with a safety page detailing the meaning of each of the symbols used and providing a link to the H&S executive. There are also the opportunity to promote and sell safety kits - see Demo website.

Cross selling

The site gives you the opportunity to make suggestions to customers based on what they are hiring including add-ons and sales.

Unlimited functionality capability

The site comes with a particular set of functionalities which are at the core of how the site operates. However further functionality can be added. We can do pretty much anything that is needed. Just call us for a chat about your specific needs.

This is probably the biggest and most important aspect of your site. We like  straightforward easy to use sites, and so do your customers - which is what they will get with your site.
