Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a business only basis) an exceptionally well run and performing, turn key national & international, award winning, same day courier business, with an excellent reputation along with a strong and consistent brand.

The business has only now come to the open market as it’s our clients desire to leave the industry and pursue other business interests.

The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since the early 1990’s and who have grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover now over the million-pound mark and profit levels growing steadily. Sales in 2019 have yet again surpassed that of 2018, showing continual growth as we go forward. 

They have just been awarded with the highest of accolades by Plimsall

The business offers a bespoke same day delivery service throughout the UK & Europe and benefits from being one of the founder members of the Courier Exchange service, meaning that apart from having their own efficient fleet of vehicles & dedicated drivers, they also have further access to 1000’s of subcontractors and owner drivers all over the country & Europe, who in turn also require us to carry out urgent sameday deliveries on their behalf.

This means that the business is incredibly versatile, and the company has the ability to deliver anything from a consignment of parts to an oil tanker in Northern Spain for critical repairs as it has done previously, to three suitcases of Christmas presents for an elderly lady. Indeed, its customer base reflects this which is a mix of national and regional businesses.

We feel that there is tremendous scope to increase the already impressive turnover and take the business to the next level by undertaking in a robust national marketing campaign to generate new contracts along with the possible expansion of the workforce to help accommodate any new and ongoing contracts along with revised operating hours.

The business would further benefit from an updated online presence via its current website, that would also help boost the profile of the business.

The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially make an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry or as a bolt on service to a multi drop delivery business looking for other revenue streams.

A tremendous opportunity to own this turn key business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Premises, operating centre and vehicles are available if required , under separate negotiation. 

The business is currently located in the North of Scotland area (IV) but is easily relocatable, and currently operates from a purpose-built industrial unit within a large, well known and expanding trading estate, surrounded by a plethora of complementary businesses.
