Become a HIA Ambassador
We're always telling people how great Home Improvement Agencies are, but there's nothing like hearing it directly from the people who deliver the service. We know there are lots of very passionate and dedicated people working for HIAs and we want to encourage and support you to spread the word.
All we ask is that, when you have the opportunity, you tell people about the great things that HIAs do. In return, we'll send you a HIA Ambassador badge and certificate. Your agency will also get a free upgrade to a Featured Listing on findmyhia.org.uk so you can add photos, case studies and extra information to your listing. We'll also set up an online discussion group just for HIA Ambassadors.
