    Price : £18,600.00 (Fixed)
    Type : Sell
    Date : 19th September 2018
    Warranty : No
    Location : Liverpool, Merseyside, UK


    This long established business trades from a home based office and therefore can very easily be relocated anywhere if preferred.

    The owner of the business, who has been reducing his workload over recent years, has kept trade within a local area, covering Merseyside, which provides more than enough business without the need for any advertising, other than the current website and facebook page. Leaving considerable scope for a new owner to expand the trade and area covered if desired.


    Established by the owner in 2000 the business provides a unique and specialized service with an extensive range of loft storage solutions. loft flooring boards and/or insulation loft ladders in timber or aluminum at all inclusive prices.

    The ladders themselves are purchased at greatly discounted prices directly from the manufacturers, who have an excellent long term business relationship with the owner, and can easily be stored in a standard size domestic garage, and although the current owner only supplies and installs, further development potential exists to sell the ladders direct to the public via the website for self installation.

    The vast majority of installations are on domestic properties and are easily completed by the owner alone, although occasionally he also installs ladders in commercial premises which includes schools, churches and access rooms, etc, and on any larger jobs the owner uses a self-employed sub-contractor who is happy to help and it is envisaged that this arrangement could continue if desired.

    The business has very little competition and what competition there is are more expensive, leaving scope to increase the current prices if desired. Further potential also exists to add to the website and service offered, as any enquiries currently received are simply passed over to other providers.

    Work is obtained from the businesses website which comes up high in the appropriate Google search rankings and from a facebook page, but again if a more active campaign was undertaken it would undoubtedly increase trade. Lots of customers also come by way of recommendation from existing clients.

    As detailed earlier the owner who has run the business for the past 18 years (since 2000)

    The sale includes the website, business goodwill, existing business telephone number, the required equipment to install

    The owner is also happy to help train any potential purchaser to ensure a smooth handover and successful transition to new ownership. Stock held is extra and is estimated at around £1,000.
