Selling a Company


Selling an Industrial Parts Cleaning Business

No one said selling your business in a depressed economy would be easy. But selling your industrial parts cleaning business doesn't have to be as daunting as it sounds.

Business sellers sometimes face a long, hard struggle to get fair market value for their companies. But with the adequate preparation, your industrial parts cleaning business can attract buyers who recognize its potential.

In a skittish economy, industrial parts cleaning business sellers can access several strategies to receive fair market value from entrepreneurs who understand the value of a good business investment.

Selling to a Family Member

There is no easy way to sell an industrial parts cleaning business, not even to a family member. Often, a sale to a family member creates fractures within the family. Unless you have agreed to treat the family member like any other buyer, the risk of hard feelings among other potential heirs or family members is high. If possible, discuss a long-term, generational transition with the entire family and seek the advice of a professional consultant.

Advertising Your Sale

Successful industrial parts cleaning business sales listings are intentionally promoted to the right prospects. However, confidentiality and other concerns can present challenges, even for sales professionals. If sale information leaks out, competitors can use it to steal customers and circulate negative messages about your business throughout the industry. Business brokers are skilled at publicizing industrial parts cleaning business sales while maintaining the confidentiality that is critical to your business.

Sale Costs

In an industrial parts cleaning business sale, pricing is based on a number of factors, including the costs incurred during the sale. Good brokerage takes a 10% success fee off the top of the final sale price. Depending on your circumstances, you may also incur substantial expenses in hiring legal, appraisal and accounting professionals. Furthermore, your time has value, so you may need to include a personal compensation consideration in your expense estimates.
