Why is this business successful?

The current vendors purchased an exclusive license in 2014, filling a gap in the local market for providing on-demand door to door relocation and delivery of goods. In 2017 the vendors expanded their territory and further secured a significant part of the market by purchasing the Werribee license. The business started with one truck and then grew to the expansion of five vehicles.

As many customers can’t hire a truck or trailer and are unable to move heavier items, the delivery business was designed to meet the need and capitalise on the opportunity to provide a service to take care of the moving for them.

This is an excellent removalist business with a point of difference, secured territories and proven returns. The business comes with the necessary equipment and staff to continue operating successfully under management. There is further opportunity to expand with additional trucks and driving new business via additional marketing and seeking new contracts with other major retailers requiring delivery services for their customers.

If you are looking for an excellent business opportunity – or – if you are looking at expanding an existing business with two secured territories under a great band with contracts in place, then enquire now.
