Maintenance plan management

Maintenance plan management

When we manage your MRRP, your buildings and budget are always in great shape

In a nutshell

Managing agents are perfectly placed to deal with routine and emergency maintenance issues… King Price community insurance is perfectly placed to project manage all the planned capital works and long-term maintenance jobs identified in your maintenance, repair and replacement plan (MRRP). Let's maintain your community together!

We're really good at this

With our legal, operational and financial expertise, and because we're involved from start to finish, nothing escapes our scrutiny... When we manage your 10-year MRRP the king makes sure that your community's managing agent, body corporate, trustees, unit owners and residents have all the right info, at the right time. So the best decisions are made and your community is immaculate and compliant, all the time.

Different kinds of maintenance

Your managing agent deals with what we call 'event based' maintenance. This is the day-to-day fix-its and the unscheduled repairs and replacements sometimes needed in emergency situations... Like after a lightning strike.

King Price community insurance has all the expertise to deal with the 'time based' maintenance that's highlighted in the MRRP we prepare for you. Because we have a network of experienced planners and project managers, expert suppliers, costing and supply chain management expertise, industry-leading technology, and a single point of contact to keep everyone connected, we can get the job done quickly, cost-effectively, compliantly and with the least possible disruption to your community.

We're big... But not simply for the sake of saying it

Our size in the market gives us purchasing power. This means that we can harness economies of scale to reduce your costs and negotiate preferential rates. The king passes these savings on to you!

We work with a pre-approved supply chain, which means we can monitor the quality of work we do for you. All our contractors are bound to service level agreements that are regularly revisited. Every month we compile detailed cost/saving reports and supplier performance reports. We also review our suppliers and test the markets annually, to ensure continued value-for-money for you.

Please note: While we're able to source specialised suppliers for each project we undertake for you, we're also flexible enough to manage your scheme's existing supply chain if we need to.

24/7 service

Your residents will also love the fact that they can arrange emergency call-outs from the comfort of their couches… By logging onto your community's dedicated portal or by calling our 24/7 emergency number.

Our call centre staff are trained to deal with all emergency scenarios, from plumbing to electrical services. They have back-up from team leaders and a quality assurance coach to ensure that we consistently deliver on our promise of royal service. We confirm appointment details via SMS or email and the repair process can be monitored via your community's portal.

When the work is done, unit owners pay the repairman directly and they can rate their maintenance experience. Very simply, when you insure your community scheme with the king, or appoint us to project manage your planned maintenance contracts, our royal maintenance access services are just a call, click or tap away for each unit owner or tenant.
