Established Mobile Dog Grooming Business For Sale In Greater Manchester
Relocatable : £ 34,950
Turnover : £ 850 p.w.
Urban Locks Business Brokers are delighted to introduce to the market this busy, Mobile Dog Grooming Business in Greater Manchester. With a customer base of over 400 clients, and a professionally adapted grooming van, this rare opportunity is only now being sold due to other family commitments.
The current owner operates the business within a 5-10 mile radius of her home in Walkden, Greater Manchester. The business boasts a fantastic, regular client base within this area but offers huge scope to trade further afield.
This fantastic business was established in November 2013 by the current owner, and has continued to grow from strength to strength without any major advertising campaigns. Travelling to clients, the majority of the current customer base of over 400 has been introduced via recommendations and through the stunningly designed van.
The current owner runs the business to suit, working between 30 & 45 hrs per week over five to six days.
The business offers a range of doggy pampering & treatments in the stunning, specially adapted vehicle, including bathing, drying, brushing, hair clipping, styling and nail clipping. The business has a huge amount of bookings going forward and there is massive scope to add further treatments to increase an already attractive turn over.
The vehicle is a 2008 long wheelbase Ford Transit van that was purchased for £18,000 towards the end of 2013, from a company that professionally adapts vehicles, especially for the Dog Grooming industry.
The vehicle has been very well maintained, there is an Mot until July 2015 and it has covered approximately 72,000 miles, which will increase, as it is in daily use.
It comes with reversing sensors, sat nav and an extra security locking system.
The vehicle is fully fitted out for the industry, and comes complete with a 140 litre water tank, which will service between 8 & 10 dogs, Hydraulic treatment table, Hydro bath, power blaster drier and H-Bar with restraining equipment.
There are ample storage cabinets throughout, as well as overhead storage units.
There are tinted windows either side at the rear of the van, which invites natural light, and an electric safety cut off box to the rear.
The price includes the fully fitted van with all equipment and stock, the goodwill / customer base, all bookings going forward, Website & domain, Telephone number, facebook page, business name and all digital images.
The current owner has advised us that she has never under taken any major, paid, advertising campaigns, and has grown the business through details on the van and word of mouth recommendations.
With a degree of advertising, we feel that this business could be increased massively.
There is also fantastic potential to offer micro-chipping and retail goods including pet toys, grooming equipment, shampoos and food that should increase an already attractive turn over.
The current turn over varies between £700.00 per week and £850.00 Per Week depending on how many hours the owner works, which is between 30 & 45 currently.. We have been strongly advised that there is a huge amount of work available if the hours were increased.
Viewings are strongly recommended and are strictly via Urban Locks Business Brokers.
