When it is time to sell your distribution business the first thing you should do is hire a qualified distribution business broker. The broker will ensure that everything goes according to plans and that your emotions don’t get in the way. Our team at So-Cal Business Brokers has been selling distribution businesses for more than two decades now. We have dealt with all manner of challenges and found solutions that many brokers have not yet found. It doesn’t matter how demanding the sale is, we will help you get through it stress-free. Prior to hiring any professional to help with the sale we recommend you ask the following questions.
How do you maintain confidentiality?
Disclosing that your distribution is for sale to customers, competitors or employees can be devastating. That is why you need to keep the sale a secret. While most distribution business brokers will rely on blind ads and require buyers to sign NDAs, we go a bit further. Maintaining confidentiality is our top priority. We always shield our clients until we are certain we are dealing with a serious and qualified buyer. Take advantage of our free consultation to learn how we maintain confidentiality.
How will you vet buyers?
Vetting a buyer must be more than just financial. Our business brokers take the time to determine if the buyer is professionally and financially qualified to acquire your business. We will not disclose your details until we receive evidence that the buyer is a perfect fit. Doing this guarantees that we never waste your time when selling your business.
Will the sale disrupt my business?
One of the main reasons for hiring an experienced distribution business broker is so as to delegate the sale to someone more qualified. A good business broker will take care of everything and only consult you when major decisions have to be made. To do this, our team at So-Cal Business Brokers always takes the time to know and understand your business so that we are able to navigate buyer interactions better. Thanks to our decades of experience, we know what quality buyers will ask. Our process is designed to provide the least amount of disruption to you and your business as possible.
Other questions we recommend you ask are how will you market my business and who will negotiate the deal. At So-Cal Business Brokers we know how demanding it is to sell a distribution business. That is why we are committed to giving the best experience possible. Give us a call now to find out more.
