Business Description:
ENLIGN is proud to represent this established and profitable service and sales center for name brand outdoor power equipment. Serving both residential, commercial and municipal accounts this business has built a reputation of quality with loyal customers. The business maintains a depth of inventory for sales and service needs including commercial mowers, residential mowers, trimmers, hand tools, edgers, chain saws, blowers, hedge trimmers and brush cutters from several top name brand manufacturers. $250,000 of inventory (parts and saleable product) will be included in the purchase price. Should actual inventory at cost exceed $250,000 as of the date of closing the purchase price will be increased dollar for dollar.  If the actual inventory at cost is less than $250,000 the purchase price will be reduced dollar for dollar. Note that due to seasonal purchasing that there is currently almost $400,000 in owned inventory and an additional ~$450,000 of inventory on consignment or floor plan accounts. Buyer will need to apply and be qualified to establish new flooring credit facilities for this portion of inventory.
Historical Summary:
The business was formed in the 70's and has continually operated as an brand name authorized outdoor power equipment sales and service center. The nature of this business allows the business owner to have significant inventory on hand at the manufacturers expense. Products are paid for when sold and the financing facilities will need to be assumed or established by the Buyer. An adjustment as of the date of closing will be made such that seller will be responsible for income and expenses as of the day of sale and buyer thereafter.
Owner Qualifications:
Buyer should have general business/management experience, enjoy customer interaction and providing quality products and services.
Competition in this industry locally is rather limited with most competition choosing to focus more exclusively on residential or commercial or municipal. In general, most manufacturers do not distribute their high end or commercial products to big box retailers (I.E. Lowe's and Home Depot).
Potential Growth:
A hands on owner operator could increase sales and revenue by focusing on internet marketing (social media, pay per click, etc.). Additionally, online parts sales could be expanded and new brand lines could be added as they become available in this market. Buyer could add a small tractor line and staff outside sales position as well. Equipment rental is an entire revenue center that could be implemented.
