Business Description
Family owned well established wedding car hire business, supplying bespoke travel service.
Located in the West Midlands and covering an area of forty miles radius from the NEC .

Trading successfully for the last 12 years, my partner and I have decided to retire and sell on our wonderful business to a new owner.

ABOUT:
We have started this business from scratch back in 2006 - Originally trading with a fleet of 4 available cars and operating just one wedding per day. To date, we have successfully conducted over 700 weddings following this method and have glowing customer reviews from every single one we have been a part of. We downsized our fleet to 2 cars as we started making plans for retirement.

We have agreements with many local hotels to be their first recommendation to prospective weddings in their venues, and undertake a small amount of advertising on yell.com. A large quantity of our business comes from our excellent reputation and recommendations from previous weddings we have worked, as well as our very active social media pages which have hundreds of followers. We have also had great success at Wedding Fairs.

As you can see from our site, we also provide luxury airport travel. This is something that has gone hand in hand with the wedding business, as we can offer packages to couples who are also looking for transport when leaving for their honeymoon.

We operate in the West Midlands area within a 50 Mile radius.

HOURS:
The business runs 24/7. Enquiries through social media are frequent and happen all throughout the day. We have always been happy to field these enquiries in our personal time as we really love what we do and helping people get organised for their big day.

Weddings have been a changing business, with more people choosing to get married during the week as opposed to only on the weekends - and so business has never been better, with the scope for a new owner to take this even further by increasing the fleet or even working more than one wedding per day.

STAFF:
As a family run business we have managed to run the business easily with a staff of two - with the occasional help from a third when a wedding calls for more than one car to be available.

INCLUDED IN SALE:
Kathleen - our Open Top Beauford Tourer - Old English White coachwork and contrasting burgundy leather interior. Worth £20,000

This car is widely reknowned for being THE wedding car to have, and at 16ft long was actually purpose built for weddings. With all the classic bodywork and good looks of the old Bentleys - this one has a modern engine underneath meaning it doesn't break down and can stand to do long journeys. Something that many old wedding cars can't handle.

Eva - our Jaguar Daimler - custom Ice White coachwork with autolux high quality hide leather in beautiful barley colour. Worth £6,000

Eva has walnut facia door trims & picnic tables, is fully air-conditioned and has premier suspension to ensure the ultimate ride.

A well built and branded website as well as all our social medias.

Hundreds of decorative ribbons for the cars. We are one of the very few wedding car hire services that offer to match the color scheme for the wedding!
GROWTH OPPORTUNITY
There is huge scope for growth here. The introduction of another Beauford Tourer or similar car to the fleet would see business increase to much higher levels. Something we haven't explored due to wanting to retire, but have had so many enquiries about being able to provide that.

There would also be the option to run multiple weddings in one day, serve a larger location area, and invest in further advertising. But there is plenty of call for our service even without doing so.

You could also branch out into the prom hire trade if desired, as this is something we are asked about frequently.

We would love to see this business taken on by someone who shares our passion and commitment to fantastic customer service and carry this businesses stellar reputation to the next level.

Please get in touch for a viewing or to ask any questions you may have.
