Property Features and Assets:

The seller does not own or rent a commercial building/property for the company’s use. When the company’s equipment is not in use, it is stored at the seller’s personal residence. A new owner will likely need to have an existing storage yard or be able to acquire one (rent or purchase) for the equipment. Typically, the company works year-round and the need for equipment storage is minimal. The seller believes that a one-half acre site would be more than sufficient for equipment storage. Assets=$183,352.

Market Competition and Expansion:

The company gets the bulk of its work from referrals from past and current customers. The main water utility company vets and approves only a small number of contractors to install and repair water connections in the Boise area. The company has been on the approved list for over 18 years. Once approved, a contractor is subject to annual review of performance, must follow stringent guidelines and complete a master service agreement every three years. The company has remained on the approved list while other contractors have not been approved or retained. Currently, the main water utility company has 10 approved contractors according to local management for the water utility company. There is growth potential and long-term stability due to the steady flow of jobs from repeat satisfied customers. Adding another crew and a a part-time bookkeeper could allow the company to almost double its earnings.

Reason for Selling:

The owner is ready to retire after 40 years.
