OVERVIEW

This is an excellent opportunity for a sole trader or small joinery business to inherit an established and profitable business with huge potential for further expansion. ARBC produces DIY restoration kits for garden benches and other items of outdoor furniture.

No specialist machines are required over and above the norm and a substantial part of the product can be outsourced, meaning operating and staffing costs are negligible.

Sales are growing consistently year-on-year making this a fantastic investment that will easily pay for itself within 2 years of purchase based on current sales figures. See PDF document for sales figures for 2015, 2016 and 2017 (YTD). Detailed sales figures are available on request. It is being sold because the founder and owner is retiring.

Currently based in Buckinghamshire, the business is easily relocatable with a national client base.

2017 SALES FIGURES SO FAR. January: £4,087.00 February: £2,839.00. March: £11,457,00. April: £22,729.45.

THE BUSINESS MODEL

Customers with an old, rotted garden bench order a replacement kit via the website and pay for it by PayPal or credit card. Kits contain all the elements needed to restore their item: rounded and pre-drilled hardwood slats cut to size, fixings, and an assembly guide. Packs are shipped to the customer by courier.

ARBC is the only company to have capitalised on this unique concept and has therefore no direct competitors anywhere in the UK.

Customer satisfaction is excellent. ARBC frequently receives highly-positive feedback on both the quality of its products and the overall service. Sales usually occur in clusters, suggesting that word of mouth from satisfied customers does much to promote further local sales.

THE SALE INCLUDES

- Established brand and excellent reputation (ARBC has been trading for 7 years)
- Well-established supplier relationships
- Custom built website, including domain name, a fully operational eCommerce platform, complete sales history, all historic Google Analytics data on visitor statistics.

THE WEBSITE

The website alone would cost in the region £10,000 to build from scratch and was custom-built and designed for ARBC. It is well-optimised for search engines and gets an average of 2,500 hits per month, with a high conversion to sales.

It is an eCommerce website capable of storing order details and processing transactions. Many years have gone into its refinement to ensure ease-of-use and to maximise automation of the sales process. The company that produced the website is efficient, responsive and can offer ongoing maintenance and support for as long as needed. The website can be very quickly and seemlessly transferred to a new owner.

No advertising has ever been required to promote the business. Over 78% of ARBC’s customers locate the business via organic Google search.

THE OPPORTUNITY

To date ARBC has been run as a sole tradership, but it has become more than a full-time job to meet current volumes of orders. An overhaul of production methods would increase efficiency and turnover.

There is plenty of potential to expand the product range to further boost the growth and profitability of the business.

The current owner is willing to offer support to assist with a smooth transition to new management. Details available on request.
Is this business relocatable: Yes
