Reputable Ground Maintenance & Hedge Trimming Business in Cornwall
- Excellent Reputation
- Very Loyal Customer Base
- Equipment Included
- Secure Contracts
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a successful business, which offers ground maintenance and hedge and tree trimming services and is located on the Lizard Peninsula in West Cornwall.
The business was first established in 1988 and has grown steadily since its creation, whilst also building up a loyal client base and an excellent reputation in the local area.
The company offers a wide range of services, mainly completing mowing and strimming in the summer months, and focusing on hedge trimming and tree surgery throughout the winter.
Due to the company’s brilliant reputation, they already have an extensive, existing customer base, which will transfer over with the business sale. This should ensure plenty of trade for the new owner.
A new owner could easily choose to provide further services to their clientele, such as lawn treatment and landscaping, so there is huge scope for growth and room for expansion.
As the business has an ideal location on the Lizard Peninsula, which is a popular holiday area, there is plenty of trade in the form of holiday homes, holiday lets, holiday parks, and private gardens.
This business is relocatable within the current area of operation, which should provide the new owner with some flexibility over their work location.
All equipment will transfer over with the sale, including 1 x John Deere X350R (2020) 42" ride-on, 1 x John Deere X350R (2017) 42" ride-on, 1 x Stihl RM 765 (2021) 21"walk-behind, 1 x John Deere R54S (2018) 21" walk-behind, 1 x Stihl FS460 (2021) brush cutter, 1 x Tannaka blower (1999), 1 x Stihl KM85, 1 x Kombie with chainsaw (2013) and hedge trimmer ( 2019) attachments, 1 x Stihl telescopic chainsaw (new in 1999), 1 x Stihl MS260 15" and 18" bars (2008), 1 x Stihl MS460 18" and 24" bars (2011), 1 x Parker top handle saw 10" bar (2021), 1 x bespoke trailer for carrying the ride-ons (2018), 1 x Mitsubishi L200 pick-up (06 plate with 104,000 miles), 1 x compressor (2020), 1 x ride-on mower jack (2004), and equipment spares.
The current owner is happy to offer an initial transitional period.
This would be the ideal opportunity for an existing operator in the sector, who is now looking to expand.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to increase advertising. Furthermore, developing a website and some social media channels may be hugely beneficial. Finally, the new owner could also choose to extend the service offering, which could lead to increased levels of trade.
If desired, there would be the choice for a potential buyer to split the business and purchase only the grass-cutting side. The vendor is open to offers and negotiations on this matter.
