Who are we:

We specialise in selling businesses mainly in the industrial, commercial and service sectors and we also handle the sale of the more unusual businesses which most agents do not handle.

We sell businesses from sole trader businesses to sizeable companies to buyers locally, nationally and internationally.

Our head office is in Exeter but we have a satellite office in the Midlands led by experienced business valuer, Ian Mackenzie.

What we offer:

For business vendors we offer a service from start to finish, from an assessment and business valuation exercise, advertising the business for sale via various promotional exercises, arranging meetings with prospective purchasers, negotiating the best deal for our vendor clients and seeing the process through to the completion of the business transfer.

For buyers we have businesses for sale in various market sectors and from owner managed businesses to sizeable companies which would appeal to investors. We also sell businesses that can be relocated or run from home. We offer guidance throughout the process to help buyers achieve their aims.

Why Use Us?

We are a long and well established UK agency which adopts a professional and specialist approach to business transfer - with confidentiality and discretion.
Our knowledge, experience and expertise is available to all our clients - from people who enjoy the personal approach to business.

We offer a range of services to assist buyers and sellers.

We understand the needs and concerns of both buyers and sellers, so we are ready to help you sell your business or buy a business at every step along the way.

We are always prepared to go the extra mile to help clients achieve their objectives - perhaps not such a common trait among companies in today's market! 

We care.
