Berkeley Chimneys was started in 1992 .Over the years, I have built this business doing chimney cleanings, masonry repairs, general restorations and inspections. While this continues, the additional, booming business of chimney removal and prepping for gas is a huge bonus, these days. We are certainly not the cheapest company, but I pride myself on delivering a high quality, reliable service. Its now time for me to retire and to pass on the business to someone new.
All the business comes from review sites, referrals and repeat customers,(only 5 star reviews, no claims ever against my insurance.) I'm usually booked months ahead and handle maybe 20 % of the work presented. I have had no need to advertise for the last 12 years. I have had the same same phone number for 26 years. Repeat customers and referrals are the reason for success.
In the last few years, I have been working in the field only three days a week, but prior to that I was grossing over $125000, just by myself without help. This business needs someone new to expand it to its full potential. While I have thought about taking on three employees, and really taking advantage of the situation, I think I would prefer to sell it outright
This business is an open gold mine to whoever wants to pick it up. I'm looking for offers around $95000 which is, already a bargain price, but I will listen to any reasonable offers. Cash offers being most preferred. The business was recently incorporated (LLC); all records and tax returns etc are available for inspection.
Included in the sale, if wanted, is a good van, tools, equipment, stock, and of
course the phone number, which has remained unchanged since 1992.
If interested, please e-mail, call, or leave a message at the office.
