Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy haulage business in West Yorkshire.
The business was established by our client in 1980 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £281,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 63%.
The business operates with four wagons, three of which are 26 tonne and one is 7.5 tonne. One of the wagons is always spare to cover for breakdowns or servicing. The business currently has 20 live accounts and are an approved contractor for Euro freight companies with regular repeat business.
All the goods are picked up for distribution from Bradford and delivered within the Yorkshire, Lancashire and Midlands areas, as well as collecting goods on the return journey. The business also deals with some Middle East companies for collections. All the drivers are ADR trained, which allows them to carry dangerous goods by road.
The business is currently run at a pace to suit out client, with all the work carried out within a 150 mile radius of Bradford, giving a new owner massive scope to expand the delivery and collection area, perhaps by offering a full UK service. There is also scope to embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the services offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the company.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level. It is also an ideal bolt-on opportunity for an existing haulage company, who are looking to expand and acquire a thriving business with massive scope for growth. Early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
CPL Transport currently operates from a small office on an industrial estate within Keighley, West Yorkshire. The business only is for sale and is fully relocatable anywhere within West Yorkshire and could easily be run from a home address.
