Sale of Businesses

Up for sale is our Garden Bag and Rubbish Removal Service

We have been operating this for   23 years and have a quality business that is   efficient and well run. We have decided for various reasons to leave the business in good hands and retire.

This business includes a 

*Isuzu NPR 2010 Truck purpose fitted with a garden bag back (including a hydraulic lifter)  – all working perfectly and in very good condition. (Under 170 000 km)

*Regular garden bag client base of  well over 800 clients.  Every client pays $20 per bag collection and most are scheduled monthly – some second monthly. Multiple bags at body corporates and some private homes.    Garden Bag  turnover alone  averages  $14000 per month over the last 6 months.

*Cloud based logistics software program, (created for someone with only basic computer knowledge)

*Website  fresh and user friendly. you can update it yourself or have a local small business do it for you.

With our knowledge of the industry the below suggestions would make the business easier to run – 

-Some one who is self motivated, a  self starter  and fit. Practical, easy going and tolerant.

-A medium rigid license is required for the truck.

– A husband/wife or partners team would work well

-Hours are your choice and flexible.

-Some basic office work is required with creating runsheets and invoices and emailing clients. We (personally) update everything to Xero for ease of accounting. (Figures  available )

-Ideally you would live Southside Brisbane  or Logan areas.

-You would enjoy working outside and if you enjoy gardens that’s a bonus.

-Many opportunities for rubbish removals exist for  both green waste and mixed rubbish.  I have not included any rubbish removal income here.

-No need for vaccine as in this business you will work independently and be your own boss.  During Covid lock downs we continued to work – people were gardening like crazy !

Currently we have a subcontractor doing almost 500 bags.   He’s been with us for 16 years and happy to stay on with you or leave. (like us he is looking forward to retirement!)    John and I do the rest of the bags together – takes about 9 days a month on the road.

-There are a few variables in the business which are open for change, or you could continue exactly as we have been doing. As is – $130 000 + GST   Note this includes the truck ($50000 ) and frames ($30000)

This price is adjusted at sale as many of the clients have paid in advance (which is adjusted in your favour) Also there is a possibility of on selling some clients -again in your favour.

We are keen for the business we have established over decades to go to the right people so feel free  to email with questions.   Naturally there is much more to know then this brief summery.   So if you are  happy to work hard and decide your own hours and have  flexibility and independence then this might be for you.  There are pros and cons in every small business and we would be keen to explain both in ours.   In  purchasing The Rubbish Removers you are stepping into a well established business  with  good policies and practices and an immediate income. which you can run from home.  It is not a franchise with ongoing fees and commitment. You are welcome to meet with our accountant for more information.
