Preferred Commercial is pleased to offer for sale this popular 24 hour private hire taxi service, which was established by our client in 2001 and which is only now being placed on the market due to our client’s poor health. The business operates 24 hours, 7-days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £85,000 per annum with a gross profit of 45%. Our client operates 2 vehicles and uses self-employed drivers with their own cabs. The two Peugeot 406 cars are included in the sale along with the telephone system and telephone number. The business boasts a loyal customer base with many ferry and airport bookings. A new owner could increase turnover by taking on more drivers to meet the demand. We are advised the business receives between 8,000 and 9,000 calls per quarter and much work has to be turned away. At present our client only advertises in Thetford Life magazine, Google and Yellow pages. A new owner could introduce a web site to further promote the business. We feel this is an ideal opportunity to acquire a well-established and popular private hire business with huge scope for future growth. Early discussions with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
