Business for sale on the Sunshine Coast – Craig Campbell 0419 747 709 of Verified Businesses has pleasure in presenting this service business for sale.
Lifestyle Businesses of this nature are highly sought after and sell fast, as they are easy to learn and operate, stable and consistent, and best of all, they are profitable! The majority of clients are longer term, having been with the business for over 5 years. These longer-term relationships provide the purchaser of this business with excellent value and security, as there is some ongoing certainty of income with an 90%-95% repeat client rate.
This business caters for both the DIY’s who prefer to bring their pool water in for testing, purchase the chemical and equipment they required over the counter and do the job themselves - and those that prefer a full-service provider. Pool maintenance itself is a growing industry, because a lot of pool owners can’t be bothered cleaning their pool themselves, or they just don’t have the time or knowledge. This business sets a weekly schedule for regular pool servicing from Monday through to Friday, with a bit longer working days during Summer. One-off servicing and repair/maintenance of equipment failures are also scheduled as required. There are no bad debts and profitability is high. The current owners are reluctant sellers and are only parting with the business as it’s time for retirement.
A new owner could learn to operate the business in just a few weeks, because it’s simply not that difficult. Once you know the basics, it’s just a matter of following a set procedure. The geographical area that the business covers is compact within its daily schedules, which minimises the amount of travel and maximises profits. All the shop equipment (including the service vehicle) that you need to successfully operate this business are included here. The shop carries high turnover items, as income through sales of pool chemicals, new equipment, and organising pump and filter repairs is lucrative.
Being an independent pool supply and maintenance business means there are no franchise fees to pay, no restrictions on where you can work or what you can or can’t do, and you can enjoy complete freedom and take all the profits, which is fantastic! This gives you a natural advantage over the franchised pool service businesses.
The business is unaffected by the ups and downs of the economy. It is steady, consistent and predictable. Pool owners still have to keep their pools clean, no matter what’s happening with the economy. Easy to own and to operate, with no formal qualifications necessary, means most people would be capable of taking things to the next level if they wish.
The current owner is keen to ensure a smooth transition for a new owner, and to make sure any new owners will look after the current client base. The current owner will provide one month’s training and introduction to clients. Positioned by personalised service and reliability, this business presents an opportunity for those who wish to take advantage of the current owner’s hard work in developing the business and establishing such a great client base and presence in the local market. This business would suit those who seek to acquire a well-established business in a high growth area of Southeast Queensland with the minimum of fuss. A husband and wife team or partnership would do well here.
This dream business has been established for over 18 years on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Further investigation is strongly advised.
