BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Property Maintenance Contractor
Ref. EB058
Location : Kent
Asking Price : GBP 150,000
Established in 1985, this property maintenance contractor undertakes property and landscape maintenance repairs for an extensive blue chip client base, including major management agencies across the South East.
Undertaking 100 percent contract work the business is now firmly established as a major contractor across many counties, and prides itself on providing quality workmanship with a friendly service at very competitive rates.
The business has built a reputation on recommendation and efficiency with not many similar accredited companies in the area.
The business has grown over the years and is well established and highly regarded amongst its clients. There is a team of experienced, qualified and reliable staff who provide a high quality service and who can adapt to both small and large jobs.
With a consistent base of satisfied clients the Company achieves a better than average financial performance, even without any new initiatives from a new owner, this company will undoubtedly provide significant returns on investment for some time to come. With an excellent turnover the business represents a significant and attractive opportunity for any similar type of operation wishing to acquire an excellent, established client base without the ties and costs of an additional site.

Expansion Potential
Operating both within property maintenance and landscaping there is scope to develop this business in either or both directions and particularly in relation to expanding into domestic work which could certainly impact on turnover and profitability.

There is an outstanding opportunity to build on the existing business levels and customer base of this company. With its outstanding reputation, new owners contributing fresh ideas, drive, enthusiasm and investment will have every advantage of building on an excellent platform.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
Well established for over thirty years this business has not advertised for over fifteen years. The business has collected plenty of pictures and has e log books to showcase the services provided. There is also a well designed, informative website, however, by far its most effective form of marketing is recommendation, testimony to the high regard with which this business is held in its local area, with much of the work achieved through word of mouth and repeat contract work.
