Profitable and established for in excess of 17 years, “Sparkling” provides predominantly domestic cleaning services in a compact geographical area on the western shores of Southampton Water. The specifics of how the business operates day-to-day, combined with the concentrated client base, meant that the new owners ideally needed to be located close by. We were pleased to be able to find buyers just a couple of miles away.
Timing is important when it comes to selling a business. When we first met with the owners of Sparkling Domestic Services back in early 2016, the timing wasn’t right for them. However, we kept in touch, reviewed their accounts every year, and offered advice on what buyers were looking for when purchasing a business like theirs. We were finally instructed in autumn 2019, found buyers with a deposit paid by Christmas, and were able to facilitate a sale early in the new year.
