This is an excellent opportunity to take on a reputable glass and glazing company in Surrey.
Established since 1989, the business has been providing professional glass and glazing services to its client, boasting a team of experts to ensure work is carried out to a very high standard.
The new owner would not only acquire the business’s excellent reputation, as reflected in its highly-complimentary online reviews on Google & Checkatrade, but also ab excellent website, various specialist equipment to continue operating effectively. The business is also available on a relocatable basis.
The current owner has been running the business on the side for the past couple of years and feels he hasn't been able to reach the full turnover potential, a new buyer who can invest more time could significantly increase the turnover.
Trade is split; with 80% from new windows & repairs and 20% heritage repairs/replacements; there's now a great opportunity for someone to build on the 32-year strong reputation and shape the future direction of the company.
Operating from a newly renovated single story brick workshop set back from the high street, the premises is spacious enough to house all stock and equipment. Customers enter into a small showroom displaying examples of glass. Beyond is a separate storage area and an office for administrative duties. A toilet and kitchen are situated opposite. To the rear is a workshop with tools, machines, supplies of glass and rear access to outside. A wide range of tools, such as a 2 year old Bohle Versalux MK V glass polisher and a Meddings drill.
The business benefits from a excellent score of 9.9 on Checkatrade, other than this, there is no advertising in place. It has gained its consistent workload and excellent reputation predominantly through referrals.
This is a great chance to purchase a longstanding glazing company with an exceptional reputation for new and heritage glazing repairs and a long list of trade and domestic customers. Ideal for an experienced glazier, the new owner could take steps to grow the business further.
As the business has recently close due to the current owner’s ill health, it could be re-opened and given a new lease of life with marketing through an informative website and social media pages. The business used to get involved with English Heritage projects, plus invisible repairs and leaded lights, which could be reintroduced.
Whilst trade is predominantly gained by word of mouth and as a result of repeat business, the business could be run from a more high footfall location to attract passing trade enquiries.
