BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Specialist Removals and Storage Commercial & Domestic

Ref.GI032
Location Essex
Asking Price £ 250,000

Established in 1987, this business has for many years been the market leader for library removals and storage. This specialist field continues to provide the business with regular projects throughout the UK. Libraries, especially those in educational establishments regularly see this business as the automatic choice for any move of refurbishment.

The company provides a full turnkey service, offering a complete packing, relocation and storage solution. The business has provided its services to well in excess of 1000 libraries across the country and indeed on occasions in Europe.

The business has also gained a strong reputation in the legal sector and regular supplies its expertise to solicitors and law firms.

The business benefits from having a constant revenue stream from its archive storage division. The business is ideally located north East of London close to major road links such as the M25 and M1.

This business has achieved long term, sustained success as a result of the expertise and experience of the management and staff. The majority of new business is won on the back of referrals from highly satisfied clients. Numerous testimonials have been sent to the business from happy customers who have not only been provided with a high quality service, but one that has been achieved within the agreed time frame.

Expansion Potential
The business is very well placed to grow. The business has in general focused on library removals. It’s expertise mean that extending its services vertically to include project management or consultancy would be an obvious move. Alternatively with a degree of investment, the business could promote its high quality service throughout the commercial world.

Storage currently provides only a small percentage of revenue for the business, this could easily be expanded and archive storage in particular should be seriously explored as an opportunity for the business.
