Business for sale on the Gold Coast – Craig Campbell of Verified Businesses has pleasure in presenting this ‘Pool Shop & Pool Servicing’ business for sale.
Lifestyle Businesses ‘netting over $200k for one working owner’ 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! This dream pool shop business has been established for over 20 years on the beautiful Gold Coast. It provides water testing and advice, retails a full range of pool equipment, lighting and chemicals, heat pumps and pool blankets, and carries out pool cleaning, maintenance and monitoring.
The majority of clients are long term, having been with the business for over 5 years. There is a mix of private homes, investor homes and rental properties. These long term relationships provide the purchaser of this business with excellent value and security, as there is some ongoing certainty of income with an 80-90% client repeat rate.
This business caters for both the DIY’s and those that prefer a full-service provider. Pool maintenance 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 has a weekly schedule for regular pool servicing. Once off servicing and special 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 really time for a change for them.
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 of keeping a pool clean and maintaining equipment, 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 and service vehicles you need to successfully operate this business are included here, and the shop carries only high turnover items, as income through sales of pool chemicals, new equipment and organising pump and filter repairs can handsomely boost profits, so you have to have it on the shelf!
Being an independent pool 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 type pool 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 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 and staff.
Further investigation is therefore strongly advised.
