Trading business for sale
Offers in the region of £225,000 (includes 3 vintage Routemaster buses)
Unique Vintage Bus Company in Edinburgh For Sale Trading business for sale - offers in the region of £225,000 are invited (including 3 Routemaster buses) Ref 1581
Central Business Sales is delighted to offer to market a unique vintage bus operation that has brought the wow factor to thousands of weddings and corporate events in and around Edinburgh for more than 10 years.
The profitable family-owned business owns three stunning red Routemaster double-decker buses, all with original interiors. The valuable and iconic buses, dating from the early 1960s, have been lovingly and professionally maintained. The business could suit an existing coach or wedding transport operator looking to add to their product offering, or a vintage transport enthusiast/entrepreneur.
Demand for 2021 and beyond is currently growing fast as restrictions on movement ease. This is helped by a strong website and social media presence. Further expansion could be achieved by basing more vehicles in other areas, particularly Glasgow, which is the source of numerous enquiries.
Revenue has been generated roughly 50-50 from wedding clients eager for eye-catching style on their special day, and both new and repeat corporate clients, the latter built up over several years.
Every hire comes with a conductor with vintage ticket machine. Special touches include ribbons, flowers and bespoke destination blinds. A pool of reliable, experienced freelance staff are on hand when required.
The business operates from leased warehouse/depot premises with an office area. Rent is £7,200 per annum, which is subsidised by letting out surplus space.
Offers in the region of £225,000 are invited. This includes the three Routemaster buses, valued at a total of £150,000.
