Asking Price Open to offers
Business overviewI'm selling up my central London Heating business that I have built up due to relocation to the USA. This is a service business that I have built up over 16 years spent operating in central London and for the most part due to living outside of London have only spent a maximum of 3 days per week actually operating the business. As a result this business has significant potential to be woken up and could genuinely be earning easily 3 or 4 times the profit's I have been drawing in these last few years.
This last 3 years in particular I have devoted such a lot of time to my son's sport of Ice Hockey and as a result have been away from the business even more than normal with a lot of weeks only actually being in London 2 or 2.5 days per week. My son has as a result of my hands on involvement has now succeeded to the point of being offered a place on a team in the USA so we are relocating to help him pursue his dreams of playing his sport at the highest levels.
The turnover of the business over the past 3 years with maximum 3 days spent in London:
Year End - 2013 - Turnover £246k - Pre Tax Profit 42k
Year End - 2014 - Turnover £313k - Pre Tax Profit 90k
Year End - 2015 - Turnover £214k - Pre Tax Profit 41k
THE BUSINESS WOULD COME WITH:
A 1600 past and present customer database - As well as many current clients who are mostly commercial this database contains many past clients who have simply fallen by the wayside over the years usually down to simply not being able to attend to their needs due to operating such a short week. There are no guarantees of being able to get every client back on board of course however contact details are there and a simple courtesy call to ask if we can be of any assistance is usually enough to have a client give you another try.
FIRST PAGE GOOGLE PRESENCE IN CENTRAL LONDON!
This is something I have spent a lot of time on over the years and have prided myself on never having to pay for first page ranking on Google for our main search terms. As a result the business web sites of which there are 3, all appear under various relevant search terms in central London. The hosting of these platforms can all be transferred across so you would have full control of these sites as your own being able to edit them and update them as you wish I would ensure that they were fully under your ownership as part of the business sale.
I have "Hoovered up" over the years around 60 relevant search term domains which I have yet to bring online and have simply not bothered as I really would not have had the time to handle the work load they would produce but if even a handful of these domains were activated and attached to a hosted website, all of which can be done very easily from our hosting platform, it would have the effect of dominating the first two full pages of any Google searches for our business search terms in London leaving only space for the paid google ads at the top of the page.
