Long established business that hires out Marquees and Portable Toilets. Operating from good sized rural premises which are well placed so customers are easily reached throughout Dorset, Devon and Somerset. This well-known company has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2000 during which time they have made considerable investment in establishing the area's premier supplier of Marquees, Toilets and furniture for parties, weddings events and festivals. It is now being placed on the market as the owner wishes to retire. During our client's stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its helpful and friendly service.

Our client's hire out traditional and modern marquees of all shapes and sizes and are proud to be able to meet virtually any customers request, large or small. They also provide a range of furnishing and equipment to customise marquees as required. Our clients also have a portable toilet division hiring out toilets, disabled toilets, men's urinals and shower units. These can be serviced on request or on a regular basis throughout any event.

This fantastic opportunity is run by our client with help from a dedicated team of full and part time staff. It generates a turnover in the region of £125,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly by running a modest marketing campaign or expanding the area covered.
