BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Specialist Domiciliary Care Agency for Adults Services
Very high demand
Ref. CQ039
Location : Berkshire
Asking Price : 160,000 + NA
This business was set up by the vendor over 17 years ago after many years in care services and provides a comprehensive and fully insured, domiciliary, home care service for private customers and Wokingham Borough Council, in the Wokingham Borough of Berkshire.
Of particular importance to the business is a low turnover of permanently employed staff that are highly experienced and well trained; all staff are working towards or qualified to NVQ 2 standard and / or NVQ 3 standard.
This profitable business has established itself as a leader in the sector with an enviable reputation for quality and service. Because of this the business enjoys very high levels of referrals and repeat business from a loyal following of customers. So much so that the business can boast significant and active client base of regulars, many of whom span the whole period of trading. The majority of clients are institutional and private.
The agency is very sucessful and highlights include:
Loyal long term clients
Competitive pricing
Solutions to complex requirements
Very strong referral rates among customers
Embedded institutional relationships
The business has an excellent small team of staff working with the vendor and her senior manager including two full time carers and a reliable team of part time carers, each working circa 30 hours per week.Staff and contractors are fully conversant with the business techniques and methodolgy and are more than capable of enabling the new owner to successfully maintain continuity of trading.
The business has always been managed from an annexe at the vendors home and is easily relocatable.

Expansion Potential
The business has enjoyed steady trading over its lifetime and this is expected to continue in light of its loyal customer base. The business, while profitable and successful, has been run in more recent times in line with the vendors personal wishes and by her own admission the clearest opportunity to grow the business would be by simply agreeing to the level of demand that the company enjoys by also extending geographic reach.

The business does very little advertising or social media & internet based marketing and could certainly expand this activity with a more proactive approach. The business is well positioned to take maximum advantage of this growth as it occurs as it has the necessary infrastructure in place.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business has never felt the need to advertise bearing testimony to the fact that it enjoys exceptionally high levels of repeat business from a loyal customer base.

There is however a comprehensive and informative website detailing the services and packages offered.
