The business has stellar reviews on popular review sites like Google, Yelp, and Facebook, so the next owner won’t have to worry about starting from scratch in building up a top notch reputation. No background in the industry is required to succeed, and the current owners will help ensure a smooth transition. The busy summer rental season is already here. Don’t miss the chance to buy this established, turn-key operation that’s poised for growth and priced to sell!
The business currently utilizes outdoor storage at their residence and a commercial building where they park their vehicles and trailers, meet customers, and let equipment dry. A suitable space should be available in most areas for rent comparable to the owner’s current costs and set up.
This company has barely scratched the surface as there are many viable ways to continue to grow the operation. A new owner could expand the delivery zone, add more inventory, and increase advertising.
There are several competitors in this industry, large and small, but there is a lot of turnover. Each year will bring a handful of new competitors and another handful will exit the market. Most of these small businesses consist of a truck and a few inflatables to choose from. The smaller businesses last until the owner no longer wants to give up their weekends. The larger businesses with staying power command a price premium and have a much larger inventory and the infrastructure like this company.
