How to Sell to a Business

 

Selling a Truck Storage Business

Is the economy still a little shaky for a business sale? Sure it is. Yet truck storage businesses haven't heard the news and are reporting steady action on the business-for-sale market.

Business-for-sale markets are less dependent on economic conditions than most sellers think they are.

If you're looking for a reason to wait to put your business on the market, you'll find it. Any truck storage business can be sold at any time -- you just need to know how to influence the right buyers.

Working with Appraisers

There is no substitute for a qualified appraisal in the sale of your truck storage business. Leading industry appraisers equip sellers with a value gauge that can be accessed during negotiations. Even though you may disagree with the appraiser's value estimates, it's important to give your appraiser the information and independence he needs to present an objective opinion. To ensure accuracy, ask your broker to provide references for appraisers with industry experience.

Negotiation 101

As a business seller, you have to be at the top of your negotiating game. Information is the key to a great truck storage business negotiation. But before you can negotiate effectively, you need to have a clear sense of your minimum sale requirements. If you lack clarity about your goals, you're guaranteed to fall short of achieving of them. If you aren't sure what you need, put negotiations on hold until you gain a clearer understanding of your own deal parameters.

Economic Considerations

When you sell a truck storage business, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your truck storage business will be on the market as well as its sales price. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. If you don't believe your truck storage business would sell for top dollar right now, what can you do to make it more attractive to the marketplace? Increase profitability? Build brand visibility?. One thing is for sure - buyers are paying more attention to your company's profitability and growth potential than they are to the latest quarterly economic indicators.
