Successful Online Retailer for sale in Doncaster
Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Business overviewEstablished business selling specialist automotive products. Unique own branded products. Ebay, Amazon and 2 established websites. Easily relocatable. Good profits
Established in 2009 our business has gained a reputable online presence in the automotive industry. We have a large product range of quality specialist car accessories and our product range is branded and exclusive to us giving us a large market share in the industry. We also have a range of products that we have developed ourselves and partly manufacture. This gives us a desirable advantage in a lucrative market with high profit margins. The products are scarcely available elsewhere , thus the business is cash generative with sustainable profit margins. We have solid financials and consistent income figures with an enviable turnover and profit.
We have two eBay shops in which we are Power Sellers with 100% good feedback. The eBay shops alone generate around 45% of sales.
We have two websites which in the last year have considerably grown and generates 42% of our overall sales. The websites have very easy to use interface making them easy to update. They are fully search engine optimised and do well with many searches appearing on page one.
We also run a successful Amazon store which generates around 13% of sales.
All of our selling platforms could be expanded into other countries potentially reaching tens of thousands of customers world wide.
Our target market is all types of car owners especially classic car enthusiasts, and sports car owners. The business generates alot of interest from car clubs and online forums but mainly new customers, giving us alot of scope to sell related products to.
The business has been steadily growing since 2009 and we feel there is still huge potential for growth. There is plenty of scope for business to business as this is an area we haven’t explored. Social media marketing has not been tapped into and we believe this could open up a whole new customer base. There is also huge scope for expanding the product range with car related products.
The business is presently run by two directors (part time) and one full time administrator. On a daily basis we process approximately 25 sales per day and this can easily be managed by one member of staff as we have a fully integrated ecommerce selling platform which automates customers, stock and shipping. We operate normal office house with weekends off.
We run the business from our own industrial premises and we stock nearly all of the products. We have a warehouse and offices however as the business is web based it can be easily relocated. Our suppliers have a drop shipping facility and are capable of drop shipping our products to customers, this gives the business the potential to be run with minimum stock and using the drop shipping method. Possibly it could even be run from a small office or home.
The owners are selling the business with a view to retire and would be able to commit to a few weeks of their time during and after the transition period. We are a Limited Company, VAT registered in the UK. The business is for sale: 2 x websites, eBay and Amazon stores, Brand, Drawings and good will. The price does not include stock which is valued at approximately £50,000 to £85,000 worth. Buying the stock would give anyone interested a good platform to start selling immediately.
