The business for sale is an experienced professional tree services company, which is based in the heart of Somerset between Taunton, Ilminster, and Glastonbury. Originally established in 1999, this long-standing business has grown steadily since its creation and has a long-established customer base with an excellent work record and reputation in the area. The company offers a wide selection of local tree and hedge work services to their clients, including all aspects of tree surgery, planting and maintenance, woodland management, tree surveys, and hedge work.
The company prioritises doing the right thing by each customer, charging consistent honest rates for all their services, and looking after their employees. Due to their high-quality service offering and brilliant reputation, the company benefits from consistent work, most of which comes from repeat business or referrals. The business has £60,000 worth of future bookings.
The company regularly works for the Duchy of Cornwall estates, dozens of local schools and academies, numerous large country estates, local churches, Parish and Town Councils, and hundreds of loyal private customers.
The friendly, professional team is made up of 5 members of staff, including the owners, an apprentice, and 2 long-standing sub-contractors, who have an in-depth knowledge of the business. The business has been very successful allowing the vendor to seek early retirement!
The business is based in central Somerset and this is where the main work activity is. The current company premises are not part of the sale but could be used initially until a permanent new lock-up facility is established in the area.
If the new owner wants some or all of the current equipment this can be arranged/included in the sale.
The current owner is happy to stay for the initial transitional period following the business takeover. Any interested buyer can be introduced to the business and its work over a timescale of their choosing.
This would be the ideal opportunity for either a qualified young couple looking to move into the area or an existing landscaping business, that is looking to expand their customer base.
There is plenty of opportunity to expand this business in any chosen direction. Arbortech is regularly asked to expand their services to include landscaping or even log sales, but have so far been content with the profitable and specialised tree work service. Due to consistent, year-round work demand, they have minimal/no need to advertise and as such have not even looked at social media.
