Reputable Start-Up Online Cleaning Business in Central London
- Excellent reputation
- Huge growth opportunity
- Low overhead costs
- Friendly, professional team
- Strong supplier relationships
The business for sale is a start-up online business which allows clients to book cleaning services in central London through its ecommerce platform. Only established in 2020, the business began trading at the start of 2021 and has been met with a considerable amount of interest and bookings already. Within a few days of commencing trading and advertising, Homegy had already amassed 26 client leads and secured 6 completed bookings, worth £500 including discounts. There is enormous scope to complete the remaining 20 enquiries and take on more bookings, but the buyer unfortunately does not possess the time required to help the company truly flourish. The 6 completed bookings were conducted by just 3 cleaners out of a total team of 18, most of whom can work full-time and complete up to 2 bookings per day. With an excellent team ready at the helm, there is enormous capacity to grow this business rapidly.
Homegy operates from its well-designed website which enables customers to very efficiently book their desired cleaning services, as well as browse their services and have any queries answered in the FAQ section. Its services include house, carpet and oven cleaning, alongside deep cleaning and end of tenancy cleaning. However, clients can easily tailor their request to ensure all requirements are met. The company has already developed a strong reputation for its impeccable results, 100% satisfaction guarantee, and its friendly team of cleaners. Please enquire for full details of Homegy's trading history so far.
The business does not have any fixed premises and is therefore available on a fully relocatable basis. It is currently operated from the owner’s home which the buyer could replicate, or they may wish to move to any premises of their choosing.
Although Homegy does not have any employees, the vendor presently has a fantastic team of 18 self-employed cleaners who are paid at an hourly rate. They provide their own cleaning products. Consequently, the buyer does not need to hold inventory, meet the cleaners or customers. All the buyer needs to do is marketing.
The vendor has spent approximately £6,500 and a significant amount of time to build the company’s website and various integration platforms from scratch. The software comes with a separate app for cleaners to manage their bookings. These, alongside the business’s growing customer database, are included in the asking price. Additionally, the vendor is willing to offer a transitional period, including lifetime training and support.
The ideal buyer for Homegy would be an existing ecommerce business owner who wants to expand their portfolio with another burgeoning enterprise. Experience in running a start-up business, particularly one which operates in the digital sphere, and knowledge of digital marketing tactics are especially important in equipping the new owner with the necessary skillset to help this business truly flourish.
As a start-up enterprise, the key method to achieve immediate and long-term growth of Homegy is to create and implement a comprehensive marketing plan. This should focus on raising awareness of the company amongst its target market, generating leads, and converting these to further bookings.
