REF 6325 – Relocatable Domestic & Commercial Cleaners
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this relocatable domestic & commercial cleaners operating within Derby and surrounding areas.
Stanley Sparkle has been trading since April 2012 and was established by our client due to a requirement for reliable cleaners in this area. Our client runs the business from home overseeing accounts and administration on a part time basis. There is a reliable supervisor in employment along with seven additional members of cleaning staff. Each member of staff has their own vehicle and is fully self-sufficient, travelling to customers with equipment in place.
The business is managed from our client’s home address at present, with all equipment stored by the employed cleaners. A new owner could manage the business from anywhere in Derbyshire ideally, and will not need additional space for storage of equipment.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is only being offered for sale as our client has a young family and no longer lives in the local area. The employed supervisor oversees day-to-day management of the business with our client overseeing accounts and administration. A new owner may wish to continue to run the business in this way or create a more hands-on role for themselves.
Stanley Sparkle operates within the Derby area with much scope for expansion into a broader area with additional staff. It has a large base of regular customers, 90% of which are domestic and 10% commercial. The business can also offer carpet and oven cleaning but at present, this is not overly advertised and could be greatly expanded for additional, high margin income. The team of staff are reliable and long-standing with plenty of experience and have good relationships in place with customers – this brings new custom via word of mouth and recommendations – there is also a small amount of online advertising in place with scope for more and a social media presence could also be beneficial. The staff all have use of a Henry Hoover each and a Bisell commercial carpet cleaner is shared and used as required. Additional cleaning equipment is also provided by the business and stored by staff.
The business is currently operating with a team of eight staff including a supervisor. As mentioned above, our client works on a part time basis overseeing administration and accounts.
Stanley Sparkle has traded solidly since opening in 2012. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £70,516. It is to be stressed that the business is currently being run at a pace to suit our client and there is scope and demand to advertise and expand further with the acquisition of commercial contracts and customers further afield.
This relocatable business is well-established with a strong base of customers and is easily managed. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with a strong marketing drive and an expansion of operating area and staffing. There is also plenty of scope to develop the commercial customer base. A new owner may wish to manage remotely as the current owner does or become more hands-on to lessen staff costings. Early meetings with our client are strongly advised, and this will be done via telephone in a first instance.
