    This may be a little premature, but I expect rounds in Ireland to sell a bit slower than in the UK, so i'm putting the word out early!

    I'm planning a move next year, and will be selling up my current round including my van & all equipment and setting up a new round from scratch in my new town with a shiny new van & setup. [​IMG]

    The round is well established, some of the residential work was my father in laws & has been on the books for 20 years now! I am passing a small bit of work onto a friend, but last year the section that I'm selling earned €32,700 which comprised of:

    €17200 of regular commercial work, all established 3 years or more and all working out about €50 an hour.
    €10,000 of residential, all well established
    €5500 of extra's - gutter cleans, pressure washing etc.

    I did turn down a lot of gutter cleaning work because I don't have a gutter vac, so there definitely an easy way to expand these earnings if you wish.


    The van isn't anything special, a 2001 Peugeot boxer (Great 1500kg payload!) with 72k on the clock. 4 new tyres and its going for its DOE today which I expect it to pass with flying colours. The usual small bumps & scratches you'd expect from a van that age, but nothing serious, never been crashed etc. Roof rack & set of double ladders included.

    Fitted is a 650 litre diy system, with a Fogwash heater and a frost protect flow controller. SLX-18 and CLX-27 along with a 35' fishing pole & a harris pole I use for trad. There's a couple of brushes in there which would be great for a new starter. There's a 400gpd pumped RO unit (New membranes 2 weeks ago) and two 19 litre DI vessels.

    Also included is a fimap minny 420 battery powered (24v) floor scrubber dryer which is very handy for 2 of the commercial contracts, and a loncin 13hp petrol pressure washer with electric start and 50mtrs of hose.

    On top of all that, i'll sort out enough trad gear to get you going & the usual spare fittings etc for the pole system.

    I'll take you out & introduce you to every customer, give you a weeks training if you're a new starter etc, and do everything I can to make the transition smooth & painless.


    So, €33k of work, vehicle & all the tools & equipment needed to do the job. I would like to sell it in one big lump for the sake of simplicity,.. but if there's no interest after a couple of months i may consider splitting it - but I've no deadline for this move so can wait a little while.

    Asking price is €25k - give me a call on 086 8240556 to discuss (from the uk its 0044 86 8240556). Nathanael

    If you sell it for that you could relocate by a new van and a round worth the same for that amount of money and still have money left over

    Thats the plan. :)

    The extra's are fairly regular extra's - about 1/3rd of my chsties get me to empty gutters & clean fascia & soffit every year (I charge €130 for a 3 bed semi) and half of them get me to pressure wash their driveways too.

    I also get a good few extra's from the commercial jobs - whenever there's a visit from head office they'll want extra's doing.

    I figure this is perfect for someone who has just got redundancy & wants the whole package ready to go - most ppl with a bit of experience in this industry would just go canvassing,.. but there's plenty who simply can't hack it & would prefer to buy it as a package.

    I spoke to a local business advice group & thats what they reckon its worth. I think it was based on 7 months earnings + equipment costs,... to be honest I was expecting him to say a bit less, around the 20k mark.
