Every WHCL licensee has an exclusive territory. This means that for all intents and purposes this website is yours exclusively. There is no contact information provided until a consumer clicks on your city. At that point your contact information (and only yours) comes up. This potential customer will also be able to fill out an online estimate request which will have all of the details of their project and be directly mailed to you.
To become a licensee you will be charged an initial fee that could be as little as $0 and an annual renewal fee (starting your second year) that ranges depending on the population of a territory. Our goal is for you to become successful and stay on board with us for years to come. Give us a call today to see if you are a good fit for our licensee program.
To preserve the integrity of our name we don’t accept everyone and have certain criteria that our licensees must abide by. If you are interested in taking the next step please fill out our application for consideration.
We look forward to talking to you about potentially becoming a WHCL partner.
