Successful Green Deal Provider and Boiler Installation in Lancashire
- Excellent reputation and loyal client base with secure contracts in place
- Strong supplier relationships
- Equipment included and low overheads
- Friendly, professional team
- Wide variety of products and services
The business for sale is a thriving plumbing and heating business based in Lancashire. It offers the provision and finance of Green Deal products, as well as the installation and finance of boilers.
Established in 2011, the company soon developed a fantastic reputation amongst clientele and grown a roster of repeat revenue. It presently works on a business scheme with the government and local councils, such as its ongoing Council contract which involves the installation of boilers and heating systems.
Its outstanding level of service and quality of results has been recognised by the wider industry in the form of multiple accreditations and licences, such as its accreditation as a Green Deal Provider. It also possesses a City & Guilds certification, is Gas Safe Registered (No. 213535), has a full Category A Consumer Credit Licence, and is authorised by The Financial Conduct Authority Firm (No.624953). Each of these accolades is highly difficult to obtain, thus demonstrating the business’s superiority in its field.
The current owner conducts all business admin work from home, which means the buyer will be able to relocate the business and have full control over business operations. However, it is advisable to stay within close proximity to the existing customer base in Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester, in order to continue the business’s success. Additionally, a significant amount of travel is involved to be able to work onsite with clients.
As well as inheriting the business’s excellent list of secure contracts and prestigious accreditations, the buyer will have use of one van and two cars, all of which are on lease.
Furthermore, the vendor is willing to offer a transitional period to ensure a smooth handover of business operations.
This is the perfect opportunity for someone who is Corgi/Gas Safe Registered to propel their career through the business’s success.
The company has never done any advertising, thriving purely on its outstanding reputation and consequent word-of-mouth referrals. This presents an immediate avenue of growth which the buyer could pursue to increase awareness of the company and its success. Complimenting this with investing some time into lead generation would be a strong way to attract further clients.
There is also the option of expanding the scope of the existing certifications/licences to sell and install renewable energy and insulation products, home improvements, windows, and doors.
Additionally, the buyer can expand into different regions of the UK to increase turnover. As the holder of a Consumer Credit Licence which is highly difficult to obtain, the business is also in a unique position to expand through this method by selling products ‘in-house’ at the clients’ homes.
