Garden Services, Maintenance & Lawn Mowing in Lavington and the Albury area.
How V.I.P. started
Back in the 1970s, Bill Vis, was selling vacuum cleaners door to door. However, with his keen eye for detail, he happened to notice that the lawn of the latest customer who didn’t want to buy a vacuum cleaner badly needed mowing. He asked the question, they said ‘yes’ and the rest is history. After lawn and garden care followed more home services and today, V.I.P. offer a whole suite of home services and have 1,000 franchisees across Australia and in New Zealand.
40 years strong
As you can imagine, a lot has changed in 40 years, including lawnmowers, the size of people’s homes and gardens, technology, and perhaps most importantly, just how much time people want to spend doing it all themselves when it’s so easy to outsource to someone who’s been around for decades and whose name you trust.
Proud family business
Today, V.I.P. is still headed up by its founder, Bill Vis, three of his kids have joined the company and co-founder Rose Vis, is still involved with the business, so it really is one big happy family. Many of the staff at V.I.P. have been with the organisation for over 10 years and quite a few of the franchisees have clocked up 20+ years with the organisation. Now that’s saying something, especially these days!
