Drain company can see clear benefits of Colour Pages

For Paul Robinson the Colour Pages is “like part of the family”.

As the MD of Hull drain clearance and repair company 1-2 Clear, Paul has been advertising in the Colour Pages since 1993 and knows it works.

“We’ve been advertising in the Colour Pages for a long time now,” says Paul.

“We’ve never hesitated about advertising in the Colour Pages and we never will because we know it works. We look at it as an investment. For every pound we spend in the Colour Pages we get £25 back.”

1-2 Clear offers a range of services including drain clearing, repairing and relining across Hull and East Yorkshire and after 31 successful years in business Paul knows what his customers want.

“The people of Hull and East Yorkshire are very loyal and supportive of local companies,” he says.

“They know they trust the Colour Pages directory as a place where they can find quality local businesses – and not everyone has the internet or a smart phone so it’s vitally important we’re in the printed version.

“We’ve been with the Colour Pages so long now I’d say it’s part of the family. It’s part of the culture and it’s part of our ethos as a local company.”
