Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Anytime Skips.
Recently developed by our clients just over a year ago and is now being reluctantly offered for sale due to ill health.
Our clients invested approx £75,000 in transforming a previous car park space into a fully secure business site with water, electricity, drainage, storage and office space. There is also lots of additional space including a roadside piece of land to the front which could house a complementary business type such as repair garage which would reduce the rent paid on the complete site.
Anytime skips offers skips of 3 sizes which range from £240-£670 per hire and can offer a 24 hour delivery service if required. They offer a full advice service which includes arranging permits for any skips to be placed on public land.
Currently 90% of skips sent out are to builders and just 10% to domestic customers. Providing skips to builders is very competitive and the price/ service is the only way to compete, the high level of order from this sector prove the reliability of Anytime Skips.
In an average week 12 -15 Skips are hired out.
Our clients have invested both time and money into establishing this business, turnover should hit £150,000 in first full year of trade which we would expect to double in the 2nd year. There are lots of ways to increase both the turnover and profit of the business:
- Target more building sites and contractors - building new relationships with developments in the area.
- Increase social media presence and online booking facility
- Add a further business use to the site to reduce current running costs
- Increase the skip stock and add additional building equipment items
Very rarely a skip hire business of this affordable size, location and price come to the market and therefore we recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The owner ceased trading due to ill health beginning of August 2019.Location
