This is a very well established mobile carpets and flooring retail sales business currently operating in North Hampshire and into Berkshire. Established since 1996 the business is offered for relocation and is suitable as a stand-alone business or as a bolt-on to another flooring or home improvements business.
Offering most types of flooring from carpets, laminates, real wood, cushion vinyls and LVT (similar to Karndean) there is also a smaller line of business providing roller, venetian and vertical blinds. The business model is to visit customers by appointment with samples from all major manufacturers. Measurements can be taken on site and a quote issued there and then using a software package which minimizes waste and improves profit margins.
All fitting is subsequently carried by qualified and recommended fitters working on a sub-contract (self-employed) basis.
Currently the company concentrates mostly on retail business but trade customers are occasionally served. Growth potential exists in both retail and business sectors. In most cases the major high street retailers can be undercut and a better service and after-sales offered. The company is a long standing member of the Trading Standards Buy With Confidence scheme with an average score of 5 out of 5 and many very positive reviews.
Run from home, and from the mobile showroom, the business has a rented storage unit (£240 per month) used for deliveries and fitters to collect stock. This can be accessed by a keycode so does not need to be manned.
Now offered for sale to enable the owner to move towards retirement this business comes with everything - a quality handover, a fully developed product range with all of the major manufacturers, further growth potential and an excellent reputation.
Currently it is a small lifestyle business. It can be kept this way or, because of the size of the floorcoverings market, has the potential to be grown into a much larger enterprise.
