The East Midlands (Leicestershire & Nottingham) and South Midlands (Warwickshire and South Birmingham) areas of the StumpBusters franchise are becoming available to purchase, either together or separately, as the existing owner is looking to wind down and retire.
This is a high quality and profitable businesses, having been running in the areas for around 20 years and backed by the industry recognised StumpBusters brand name - meaning the business continually walks through the door with minimal effort, and a new owner can pick it up running hot, straight away from day 1.
StumpBusters are THE specialists in tree stump grinding using modern powerful machinery, and are THE 'go to' name for many tree surgeons who simply pass on all of their stumping work directly over themselves, or via their domestic clients as recommendations. We are also the No.1 choice for many domestic and commercial clients who trust our well established and respected brand.
You should find that there is nothing more than minimal marketing input required - as the business just keeps coming in of its own accord, through the business reputation and brand.
Moreover, there is no selling required! You simply quote (almost invariably over the phone / email) and turn up to do the work.
The East Midlands franchise is for sale at £55,000+vat, which is for the business goodwill & franchise rights to the area; existing machinery & equipment etc is available at additional cost by negotiation, or you may purchase new.
This is a busy area, has been operating profitably for many years, and is more than enough for one man on his own or to develop with additional employees.
The South Midlands franchise is for sale at £20,000+vat, which is for the business goodwill & franchise rights to the area; existing machinery & equipment etc is available at additional cost by negotiation, or you may purchase new.
This is a less busy area, and will benefit from any additional development input. The current owner doesn't develop this area as he has no spare capacity, so the potential is large.
Both areas are currently run together by the one owner/operator, and are available to purchase either separately as above, or together for a discounted price of £110,000+vat, which then includes all upfront franchise purchase fees AND THE COMPLETE SET OF TOOLS, PLANT MACHINERY, and VEHICLE/TRAILER as required.

NO arboricultural experience is required to be a StumpBusters franchisee and many come from many different walks of life.
It would be beneficial to know how to use a spanner and a grease gun. Having enthusiasm for running and developing your own business is key.
