They have also diversified to doors, bookshelves and entertainment units as well as wine cabinets. We made custom made fittings, not set modules. In our business we have staff who can do the work, and we bring in additional people to deal with things where we lack skills, such as tv advertising. On Advertising and costs, Andrea agreed that other companies benefit when Wonderful Wardrobes advertise, but then so do they when their competition advertises. Thinking you don’t want your opposition to benefit is not a good enough excuse to not advertise. They recently did their first tv ad. in about 12 years, and got some very good business out of it, mostly through the home renovation market. Managing Director, Phil Street, a first rate carpenter, has a wealth of experience in solving any storage problem. He designs the best use of the space and organises the installation. Phil is a carpenter, the company MD and Driver, but not the public face. He has taught their reliable army of staff and contractors how to measure and quote. There is a structure in place from the time an enquiry is made. Quotes are made on blue paper, which is hard to lose. We note the date of the quote, what the customer wants. Sometimes our suppliers find it difficult to supply us. “There are challenges in being a Tasmanian business. So much of the raw material comes from the mainland, and with several local companies going bust in recent years, and suppliers closing down, some mainland companies are balking at supplying us.” DaredevilLTM025c Insurance Brokers, Risk Management and Claims LTM Risk Partners is your national insurance partner.
