Selling a Cleaning Supplies Distribution Business

Are you considering whether to sell your cleaning supplies business or janitorial supplies company? If so you probably have a lot of questions such as how much can I sell my Janitorial Supplies business for or how long will it take to sell my cleaning supplies distributor? We would like to answer these questions and more for you.  Synergy Business Brokers has been selling distribution companies for over 15 years and we have a number of potential buyers for janitorial and cleaning supplies distributors.

Confidential Consultation for selling a Janitorial Supplies Company

The first step is a confidential consultation so that we can learn more about your business such as what product lines you sell, how many employees you have, what your role in the company is, and what your annual revenue and net income are. Once we have an overview of your business and review your financial information we can provide you with a potential asking price. We work on a commission only basis so it's important to us that we feel confident that we can sell your cleaning supplies business at a price that you would accept. We sell distribution businesses with owner's annual net income (including salary and benefits) of $200,000 to $5Million.

Advertising and Marketing your Cleaning Supplies Distributor

The next step in the process is to develop a marketing document about your business that maintains your confidentiality but also attracts a number of potential buyers. An example of a headline for the ad would be: Profitable Janitorial Supplies business for sale in Northern New Jersey. We'll also provide some more details without the name of the company being supplied until after a potential buyer has signed a Non Disclosure Agreement and provided information on their qualifications. We will market your business heavily on the internet and to our database of 24,000 potential buyers.

Having a large pool of potential buyers for your cleaning supplies distribution company gives us leverage to get you the highest price and best terms. It is a process that takes some time because we have to sift through a number of potential buyers to find the ones that are serious and qualified. On average it takes 6-9 months to sell a cleaning supplies business. We have sold one cleaning supplies distribution business in a couple of months but this is more the exception than the rule.

Offers and Closing

Once you have the first offer we will tell other qualified and interested buyers that in order to be considered they will need to move quickly to try to make a better offer.  Since not all offers will lead to a closing, we'll help you to analyze which buyer is most likely to close on their offer after they go through the steps beyond an offer which are: due diligence, qualifying for financing (if any is needed), negotiating a purchase and sale agreement, and then closing on the sale.

We'll help you each step of the way during negotiations to give you the best chance of closing in a timely fashion. We have contacts for bank financing and attorneys with experience closing business sales if they are needed by the buyer or seller.  Hopefully you have found this initial page informative. We're sure you have more questions for us and look forward to speaking with you.
