What makes this business successful?

Customers mostly come from Warrnambool, Hamilton, Camperdown, Colac, Portland, Terang, Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, Lorne, Lavers Hill, and Lismore. These are farmers and agriculture businesses, tradespeople purchasing tools and equipment, and retail customers looking to repair caravans and horse floats, buy, hire trailers, and seek tools and oils for special projects or collectable cars.

Marketing and advertising have been minimal as they rely on word of mouth and reputation. There is a website where customers can view lists of what’s on offer at the business and contact information for the customised trailers.

The regular client base keeps a steady workflow with the opportunity to expand the business further to wholesale trailers, set up another retail outlet in Warrnambool, produce more products for agriculture businesses and promote these to wholesale or sell Victoria wide. A new owner could also manufacture horse floats and other sourced items such as Ute trays.

The Freehold is also on offer with the business sale, making it a complete package. The land has an area of 2025 sq m with a perimeter of 242 m.
