This really is a complete 'business in a box', and so would suit either someone wishing to start a new business that would enable them to earn an income from day one rather than have to start from scratch, or an already-established Company wishing to expand its customer base at a stroke.
Very loyal client base of around 160 regular customers, covering many areas having a 'G' or 'ML' post code (but most in and around Glasgow) plus we also undertake one-off letting and spring cleans. Already firmly established and continuing to grow steadily, the scope for further expansion is not just a possibility but inevitable. This is a market that is seeing ever-increasing demand and, for reasons that the sellers will explain, virtually recession-proof.
We have a very well-trained and conscientious workforce of 22 part-time staff, although due to the business continuing to grow, we are recruiting more. Our staff are very loyal, and the current owner's main consideration is to ensure that they have continuity of employment. The Company has always been run on a very ethical basis. We never employ staff on either a cash-in-hand basis or on so-called 'zero hours contracts'. Obviously, this would be a matter for the new owner to decide, but neither do we currently employ staff on a self-employed basis.
The Company's web site is professionally maintained and updated, and the technical 'back end' has the most up-to-date functionality. Fully optimised for mobile, it has a professionally-produced video, and SEO is carried out by a fantastic local (Glasgow-based) Company who really do deliver results at a very low cost, so that we don't have to pay the larger Companies that promise the earth and do nothing! The Company is not tied in to any contracts for the web site or advertising, however, and we therefore advertise elsewhere (in local free advertising publications and on local radio) merely through choice rather than out of necessity.
The sale price includes four liveried Citroen cars (1 x petrol; 3 x diesel). All vehicles carry fully comprehensive business insurance, are equipped with Garmin Sat Nav systems with lifetime free map upgrades, and are covered by full AA parts & labour warranty). Also included are all cleaning equipment & solutions, training manuals, sample letters & documents, etc. - indeed EVERYTHING required to run the business effectively. Rather than just 'walk away', the current owner will 'sit with' the new owners from the very first day to mentor them in operations, sales, logistics, finance - and anything else they require assistance with - for up to 4 weeks, and thereafter be available for advice. The business is unencumbered - i.e., has no loans or overdrafts, no vehicle leases, no debt whatsoever. The Company carries full liability and fidelity bonding insurance - NOT just the minimum Employer & Public Liability type of cover. The sale will be effected by transfer of the Company shares.
Business people will know how difficult it is to establish this type of business, so this is a genuine opportunity. The Company has established a very strong reputation for providing excellent standards of customer service. The Company uses a cleaning methodology developed by an internationally-recognised brand, so no previous experience of the cleaning industry is required. Because our staff are trained to check each other's work, all staff are employed to carry out cleaning duties and so very little supervision is required.
Everything the Company does is systemetised, and would form the basis for a master franchise if that was a direction that the new owners would wish to take.
The business operates from 8.30 - 5.00 p.m., Monday - Friday, so no weekend working and, because we only carry out cleaning to residential properties, there are no early rises to clean offices, shops or factories!
