We are a specialist business transfer agency founded in the 1950s in Nottingham and established in the West country in 1985 by the current managing director, Roger Mundy, and Ivan Smith, both of whom previously had extensive experience with both large companies and small businesses. We now operate throughout the South West and in the Midlands and beyond.

Our reputation is for professionalism – particularly in valuation, the marketing of businesses and in negotiations.

We offer a high level of personal service to both sellers and buyers – and the degree of confidentiality required.

Hear from our clients

Thank you very much for helping us with the purchase of Krystal Roks, we’re sorry we haven’t been in touch sooner but we have been up to our eyeballs! We appreciate all the effort you made on our behalf during the negotiations, we are very grateful that you helped us to achieve our goal in buying the business.

Angelo Lenarduzzi, purchaser of Krystal Roks

From my first telephone call to Beardsley Theobalds through to the completed sale of my business I have found them to be helpful and professional, keeping me informed at all times. It has been interesting to observe their operation compared to other agents, as I am also looking to buy another business. Unfortunately many agents I contact do not even reply to initial requests, or are painfully slow to respond. Hopefully Beardsley Theobalds will soon list a business that is suitable to me as I know I will be provided with the same service as that given to the purchasers of my business.

Nigel Broderick, vendor of Tenders and Contracts Ltd.

Felt confident that Charlie was looking after all parties interests.

Clive Tabiner, Purchaser of The Cherry Tree Cornwall

You provided all-encompassing professional marketing.

Mr. R. Sillence, vendor of electroplating business

You kept us informed all the way through.

Mr. J. Field, vendor of hard landscaping business

The best service aspects of your service were no up-front charges and good advice about sales procedure.

Mr. C. Smith, vendor of agricultural supplies business

You provided a professional approach and good service and the best aspect was the continuity with Charlie and regular feedback.

Mr. L. Norris, vendor of commercial laundry

I received personal attention by Roger and Charlie. I was surprised how quickly the business sold. Obviously your marketing works.

Mr. J. Wheeler, vendor of shop/office investment property

You have a professional approach and sold my business in relatively quick time.

Mr. C. Learmonth, Motorhome Hire business

You were professional and honest and gave constant feedback.

Mrs. C. Norrish, vendor of food and drink packaging business

Impressed by Roger’s meeting and taking time to understand our business – ‘old school’ professional with attention to detail.

Mr. & Mrs. Stead, Vendors of The Cherry Tree Cornwall

I found Beardsley Theobalds to be approachable and professional whilst they attended to the sale of my business. Having initially secured the interest of several interested parties completion was achieved in a period of less than five months. Many thanks! It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
