Property Information

Facilities:

The seller does not own or rent a commercial building/property for the company’s use. When the company’s equipment is not in use, it is stored at the seller’s personal residence. A new owner will likely need to have an existing storage yard or be able to acquire one (rent or purchase) for the equipment. Typically, the company works year-round and the need for equipment storage is minimal. The seller believes that a one-half acre site would be more than sufficient for equipment storage.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

There is growth potential and long-term stability due to the steady flow of jobs from repeat satisfied customers. Adding another crew and a a part-time bookkeeper could allow the company to almost double its earnings.
