Business Details

At present, my business consists of working from home within a 20-mile radius of Mapperley, Nottingham. I tackle all aspects of pond maintenance and repairs. This mainly involves cleaning out ponds, attending to plants and fish stocks, fitting pumps and filters and UV's, including all pipework, and cleaning and servicing existing pumps, filters, and UV's, and fitting new UV bulbs. Another major part of the work is the repair and renovation of existing ponds... Fixing leaks, repairing waterfalls and streams, repairing and relaying pond edgings etc., as well as fitting new liners.

I have constructed many ponds over the last 35 years, but have let this aspect of the business slide more recently, as the maintenance side of the business continues to grow and keeps me continually busy, but I still get requests all the time, so the opportunity is most definitely there for any prospective buyer.

I am now 62 and ready to take retirement. My phone number will be included in the sale of the business, along with a client list probably numbering over 150, many of which have regular work done. I am a sole trader and mostly work on my own and hire a bit of casual labour for the larger jobs when needed.

Any prospective purchaser will need to have a keen interest in aquatics, and in-depth knowledge of everything associated with ponds, in order to continue a successful business. I have not needed to advertise for several years, but the client base continues to grow through word of mouth and recommendations.

This is a very niche business with very little competition, and consequently, once a customer has found a 'pond man', they tend to be loyal—a rare and enjoyable job for the right person.
