Business Description:
This retail outdoor power equipment dealership sells and services most of the major brands of lawn and garden equipment from a beautiful, highly functional facility located in an easy to find and access portion of town. Whether residential or commercial, there is a brand and model to fit almost every buyer’s immediate need as well as trained technicians and a deep inventory of repair parts in-stock to meet customer’s long-term service requirements. Trade-ins are welcome and 3rd party financing is available on-site. Vendor relationships are well established and highly valued. The customer list is growing rapidly every month.
Historical Summary:
The business was purchased from the original owner and has been profitable for the current owner from the very beginning.
Owner Qualifications:
General business management skills are necessary with some knowledge of outdoor power equipment being a bonus
Although there are several competitors both locally owned and national chains, no one else offers the combination of product knowledge to earn the sale, in-stock parts to reduce down-time plus experienced and trained service technicians to keep the customer happy
Potential Growth:
The greatest growth can be achieved from the daily presence and resulting efforts of a full-time owner / operator. Additionally, new customers could possibly be added through website and social media marketing. The addition of a rental fleet geared toward both homeowners and commercial accounts could take advantage of the current floor traffic of existing customers.
