The business retails turf and topsoil to a mixture of domestic and trade clients, including builders, developers, landscapers, sports grounds, golf courses and local councils.
The business is run from a home office and is easily relocatable.
Having been an early adopter of internet marketing, its website ranks highly in search engines for the appropriate keywords, avoiding the need for expensive PPC advertising. It is predominantly an online retail business, although it does make some deliveries of topsoil using its own vehicle, which is a service that could be maintained or removed and the business operated as solely an online retail business if that was the preference of the purchaser.
In addition to the owner who works fulltime in the business, it utilises some self-employed administrative and driving support, which would need to be replaced after a suitable handover.
While the business generated sales of £430k in the year to April 2021 this partly reflects the unusually high demand during Covid restrictions and the forecast for the current year is sales of £350k, still delivering owner earnings in excess of £70k.
The guide price for assets and goodwill is £127,000 to include a 7.5t vehicle with crane and landscaping equipment or £110,000 without the vehicle and machinery. The vendor will provide appropriate handover support.
The business is being sold by https://www.sellmysmallbusiness.co.uk and enquiries should be addressed to them. Please do not attempt to contact the vendor directly.
