Most clients tell us it takes 10-15 minutes to complete.  

If you need a hand our experienced team are on hand to assist. 

Most clients tell us it takes 10-15 minutes to post an ad. 

Our step by step online form guides you through the process simply and easily. 

Your ad will be visible on our website within minutes and visible on our partner sites within 48 hours. 

Unfortunately, we cannot control the time taken to update our partner sites. 

Generally, speaking No!

Decades of experience tells us this is not normally a good idea due to the disruption knowing a business is for sale can cause your staff, suppliers and customers. 

However, for some businesses a public campaign can be the right choice. 

With our premium support package you can get advice specific to your business and your circumstances. 

Yes of course. 

Decades of successful business sales have shown us the fastest way to lose a buyer is to be unprepared for their questions and requests. No-one knows your business better than you so why trust anyone else to explain your business to the potential buyer? 

We will send you an email with the buyers details as soon as we receive the enquiry. 

We always recommend you have the buyer complete the confidentiality agreement before speaking to the buyer about the business. 

Serious buyers won’t have a problem signing the confidentiality agreement. 

There’s no limit to how long you can display your ad. The choice is yours. 

The level of enquiry you can expect depends on various factors that include; industry, seasons, market conditions, level of demand your industry and the time of year.

For example, Hospitality venues often attract many enquiries because it is a popular industry for first time buyers. But, whilst other industries might generate fewer enquiries, it’s important to remember that you only need one buyer to purchase your business! Our extensive marketing reach, tools and resources will help you find your buyer sooner.

Unfortunately, there is no typical result when selling your business, in some cases you may receive only a few enquiries, and in other cases you may receive dozens of enquiries.

The first step is to make sure your business is advertised on each of the major business for sale websites so genuine buyers can find it wherever and whenever they choose to look.

To take your campaign to the next level our Premium Marketing package includes a laser focused advertising campaign including both social media and email marketing to find suitable buyers, who aren’t actively checking the business for sale websites.

You should treat every enquiry as serious until the buyers actions prove otherwise. 

You’ll know a buyer is serious if they sign the confidentiality agreement, reply in a timely manner and have the funds available or pre-approval from their bank to purchase your business. 

At the end of the month, you can choose from the following options: 

  1. Continue your listing for another month (default).
  2. Upgrade your listing with a Premium Marketing Package to find you a buyer sooner. 

You can also choose to cancel your listing subscription at any time.
