Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market, an extremely profitable and easily ran Pest control company, located in the Greater Manchester/North West area. The business was originally founded by our client over 10 years ago. In this time our client has built up a wealth of experience in this sector and is offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business, and to make it a smooth transition for his loyal customer base. Over 80% of the company’s clientele, have been with him for over 10 years. The company offers services of rodent removal, wasp nest removal, insect removal and pigeon removal and pest control maintenance, to name a few. The work is carried out for domestic and commercial customers, with the higher amount being commercial repeat trade. The company also carries out work for a large North West local authority and has done so for over 10 years. There are currently a total of 38 pest control maintenance contracts, serviced via 8 visits per year (once every 6 weeks) Our client is safe contractor accredited.The 2017 business reports show an annual turnover of £41,998 with a gross profit of £32,641 and a net profit of £20,903.The 2018 business reports show an annual turnover of £37,081 with a gross profit of £32,657 and a net profit of £21,228.There is potential to further increase the net profit, in the region of £9`000 PA (see details below) Our client hasn’t needed to push the advertising for the business this year, as the company now appears organically on the 1st page of google for searches in the Greater Manchester area for pest services. It also boost a 5 star reputation that’s it is proud of especially in a competitive area such as Greater Manchester. The business has developed an online shop that is ready to trade and provide instant growth and revenue that has not been utilised and would benefit the business greatly for the future. The business has a good quality and highly informative website, social media accounts (not currently used, but are set up) an outstanding reputation and secure long-term contracts. These contracts are predominately commercial based such as retail parks, shopping centre office blocks and small commercial bringing in a minimum turnover of £25,000 plus PA. The asking price for the business is offered below market value due to health reasons forcing otherwise a very reluctant sale. The pest control company is currently ran by the owner, with no staff members, a small amount of work is being subcontracted, mainly the clear and clean jobs and a small amount of the pest services. As our client has health issues, he has started to subcontract these jobs. The new owner could save on the subcontract cost and complete the work themselves, to further increase their profit, should they wish. This business has so much scope to increase revenue, should the buyer desire, for example push advertising and utilising social media, employing a secondary staff member, offering more services, extending coverage radius, etc. We feel this business would be suitable for a single handed worker to run as our client has for 10 years, or as an add on to a larger company that is looking to expand and take on the contract work of this company, or a family team, such as father and son.This is a fantastic opportunity to take the reins on a turnkey business, with secure contracts and very high profit margins and even further scope to increase. Early viewing comes highly recommended as our client is hoping to spend more time with family and concentrate on his health.
The business is solely run and managed by our client.
