How much to sell commercial work for?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about selling some of my commercial work in sutton coldfield and am wondering how much I can sell it for.

 

Its for one care home provider, 10 properties in total, one of the properties is front only.

It earns £286 every 4 weeks and can be done quite easily in a day (6 hours). They pay by cheque and are prompt.

7 properties are within half a mile in total.

 

How much do you think i could sell this for??

You might get a grand for it, if they continue with the new cleaner.

Unless you need the money why not sub it out. Someone would do it for £200, or less, leaving you the balance to cover paperwork.

It’s always a big gamble buying commercial compared to domestic. One lad I know paid £2500 for £500/month job. He cleaned it twice then they give it to someone cheaper. You may get a few cancellations when buying domestic if your face doesn’t fit but never all of em.

That makes me think id never want to sell work. Id hate the thought of that happening to someone i sold to. I know its the risk people take but id feel very bad. This has sort of made my mind up for me really. Cheers mate

That's the reason one draws up a contract before one buys it.

A contract from who? The seller or the client. I highly doubt you would get one from either. Alls you are buying is the good will that you can take that work over. Once that’s happened it’s up to the client on wether or not they keep you on and for how long.
