BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Car Collection & Delivery Company
Highest quality service standards
Ref. GP220
Location : Northamptonshire
Asking Price : GBP 360,000
Established in 2003, this is an opportunity to purchase a professional car collection & delivery service company based in the heart of Northamptonshire and ideally located for access to all parts of the UK, providing its high quality services to a client database of more than 2,500 motor traders and car dealers, wherever they are in the country.

Services include:

Same to Next Day Deliveries
Driven Service
Competitive Market Prices
National Coverage

The business was founded by the vendor after identifying a clear need for a reliable car collection & delivery service of the highest standard and this has meant that the companys reputation has been earned by virtue of setting the standard and maintained thereafter.

The commitment to reliability and service standards is absolute and is understood and exemplified by all staff. This is a highly competitive area of business and everyone involved whether administrator or driver knows that the companys reputation is everything.

This opportunity should appeal to someone looking to add to a similar business or for someone wishing to start out on their own with an interest in an established and profitable business.

Expansion Potential
There is plenty of room for expansion. The company services the volume of business that the current owner finds acceptable but the demand for its service currently exceed resources; and with a new owner with a greater motivation to drive new sales and marketing, exceptional growth can be achieved.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business currently promotes itself via a web-based auction site and does not yet have a website or other marketing activities other than strong positive customer feedback and referrals.
