Great Pest Control Business Opportunity - Oxfordshire


Advert ref: 2050SH

This is an established pest control business that would be ideal for someone who has the industry experience needed to operate it, but who also wants to do something for themselves without having to start from scratch and with the benefit of a well known trading name and a regular income from the existing client base, which can only be built on.

Established by the current owner nearly 10 years ago the business has built up a good reputation in the local area and enjoys around 70 regular contract clients on regular call patterns.

Clients include 2 estate agents with a total of 5 branches, farms, storage facilities, shops, small commercial premises, restaurants, pubs and schools, which bar a couple all fall within a close geographical area, reducing travelling time and maximising income. The contract clients currently represent around 50% of the total revenue.

This will be ideal for someone with the necessary industry experience just to pick up and run with. The entire cycle of the contract clients is 6 weeks, so the current owner could get you around them all in that time frame and introduce to relevant contacts and also show the ropes at each site.

The website and phone numbers will also transfer to ensure that the call out opportunities continue and all equipment, with a value of around £2,000 and stock, currently running at about £3,000 is included in the sale price.
All you would need to add is a van and you would be good to go with income from day one.

When you compare this offering to the price of taking on a franchise or starting up an independent company from scratch, this seems like an absolute bargain with a very quick return on the initial investment and so would strongly recommend early contact.

  • Established nearly 10 years.
  • Many commercial contracts with regular call cycles.
  • Most clients in Oxfordshire area.
  • Ideal opportunity for someone experienced in pest control looking for a head start on their own.
  • Currently run on a part-time basis with great scope to increase call-out work.
  • Regular clients include farms, storage facilities, shops, restaurants, pubs, schools and estate agents.
  • Can be run from home with minimal storage required.

Property Details: N/A
Asking Price: £39,000 + SAV

The business is located in Oxfordshire but is not tied to any particular location and could easily be run from home. There are no leasehold premises involved in the sale.

Home Based: Yes
Reason For Selling:
The business owner has other business interests (non-related) already in place, that is taking up more and more of their time and so feels that it is time to pass on to a new owner who can fully exploit the opportunity having left the business very well established in the area in which it operates.
