How Do I Sell My Business?


Firstly, you have come to the right place.  Hart & Co have been selling businesses for over two decades.

There are many elements that make for a successful business sale.  Large or small, most businesses will have a value.  What you need is someone who will be honest and straightforward to guide you through the process step by step.

Initially we will need to get to know you and your business to find out how it operates.  We will also need to talk through valuation.  To ensure you get the best price from the correct buyer, we use market intelligence that allows us to see who is looking to acquire on a regional as well as national basis. We also have access to databases that shows what values are applicable in each sector.  This enables us to give accurate advice and give you peace of mind when you instruct us to act on your behalf.

Confidentiality is also a really important part of the process.  From first contact, all discussions we have with our clients are treated with the utmost confidence, unless you instruct us not to, we can market your business for sale without customers, staff and suppliers etc knowing.  This allows you to carry on running business until such time as the process completes.  Around 65% of the sales we handle are dealt with on a confidential basis using Non-Disclosure Agreements that mean everyone is clear right from the outset that all negotiations are secure.

Over the years we have developed a strong and successful track record.  There are not many situations that we have not come across and this experience is vital in being able to advise you correctly on all elements that need to be considered before you instruct us to act and achieve a successful sale on your behalf.

If you would like further information or indeed have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Initial enquiries are dealt with on a non-fee paying basis and we would be pleased to help with any queries you may have.
