Tips for Working with A Business Broker
Business brokers are professional business sellers. Brokerage is particularly common in the truck trailer rental and leasing business-for-sale market, where aggressive selling strategies are the norm. Brokerage doesn't replace the seller's requirement to be involved in the sale; it augments the seller's efforts and creates a more seamless sale process. Successfully brokered sales are based on solid relationships between brokers and sellers as well as the strict execution of a common selling strategy.
Sweetening the Deal
Today's truck trailer rental and leasing business buyers expect sellers to offer concessions to persuade them to close the deal. Concessions can consist of non-cash as well as cash incentives. In fact, many concessions have little or no financial impact, but go a long way toward making the deal more palatable to young entrepreneurs. A limited amount of training and mentoring may seem inconsequential to you, but to a young truck trailer rental and leasing business owner, they can be critical launching points for their ownership journey.
