Business description

a truly unique opportunity to acquire a flourishing business based around the daily hire of two rare vintage buses. The business was founded in 2005 when the managing director bought a rare vintage bus and established that there was a market for supplying backstage support and facilities for musicians playing at outdoor concerts. Organisers, artists and visitors were delighted to have the use of a completely different form of hospitality lounge and demand for the vehicle quickly grew. Two further buses were subsequently acquired and now the business provides them for corporate events across the length and breadth of the uk. Companies are particularly keen to use them to advertise their goods and services and the buses can be branded in corporate colours to suite the relevant promotion. One large blue chip company makes regular use of the vehicles. The interiors of the units have been modified to meets the demands of the clients. The vehicle models and facilities are as follows; 1962 aec regent 5 double decker. It has a dj position and is wired for the appropriate sounds systems. The top deck has a tequila bar. This bus is presently leased to a large corporate and is branded accordingly. 1958. A very rare full fronted open top aec regent 5. Only five of this model were ever produced. This is an open top bus with the downstairs area having two leather couches and an office area. All the original seats have been retained. Customer service: the buses sell themselves and clients and visitors alike love them. For many it invokes strong memories of bygone days and for others its represents a piece of motoring history that they have never experienced before. Key strengths: • unique, interesting and popular offering • appreciating assets • constant demand • profitable growth and expansion: the business has been run by its main director who carries out all aspects of the business apart from the maintenance. He has controlled the operation to a size that suits his lifestyle and runs it on a part time basis. It would be an easy task to grow the business by strategic marketing and the addition of other vehicles. Additional drivers are hired in on demand. It is noteworthy that because of the age of each unit they can all be driven on a standard uk car driving licence.
