Customer Testimonials

  • "I write to thank you for your professional and friendly manner in respect of the recent sale of G Taylor Electrical Limited, although we have been in a strange place with the Coronavirus Pandemic, you and your team managed to remain focused on providing excellent service and communication throughout the process, resulting in a sale of the business, and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services. Once again, Thank You"

    Gary Taylor
    Former Owner & MD of G. Taylor Electrical
  • "We wish to extend our sincere thanks to Acquire for the energy and investment that you put into selling our Business. You and your team made yourselves available to us throughout the process, keeping us well informed and communicating efficiently. This contact and reassurance helped to ensure that a potentially stressful process was managed in a calm and logical way. Thank you for helping us to realise our wishes in the sale of our Business."

    Tanya Pannett
    Founder of Elysium Supported Living Ltd
  • "The team at Acquire go above and beyond when it comes to managing the Company Sale process. Unlike many other brokers, who simply introduce buyers and sellers then collect their fee at the end, Acquire help walk both buyer and seller through the process. This includes help with disputes, monitoring progress and deadlines and general experience that ensures deals complete as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Often business purchases can be delayed and made extremely complex for a magnitude of reasons. Having an experience broker by your side can mean the difference between success and failure. I would highly recommend working with Acquire Business Sales."

    Eshan Sharma
    Acquirer of Pristine Cleaning Scotland Ltd
  • "We decided after 45 years in the cleaning industry that it was time to sell our business . We looked at various company sale agents / brokers to help us with the process, but decided to use Acquire, who Sold businesses across the UK. The sale began in Mid February 2020, within three weeks Acquire had presented three companies interested in acquiring our Business. The three companies that we met were all very keen to buy, however we chose to proceed with the purchaser because they were very equipped to easily run our company. Everything was going great guns, however COVID appeared in March / April. Although this slowed the process down, we were able to get a lot of the paperwork done. I must say that Acquire diligently covered and contacted us in every step we took. We are delighted to have now sold our company with Acquire. I would highly recommend the Acquire team as their knowledge of buyers, contacts and the sale procedure was second to none."

  • "Once we had made the difficult decision to sell our business, due to ill health and retirement, we did not look back. Acquire guided us through the process step by step. During the past 18 months we were approached by several companies touting for our business. We are extremely glad that we chose Acquire Business Sales Ltd. Bill and I would take great pleasure in recommending the Acquire team to other companies, be it large or small, who are looking to sell."

  • "From the start, Acquire quickly got to grips with the scale of our business and more importantly our objectives for the sale. You also made very clear proposals on how to identify and approach prospective buyers, which as first (and only) time business sellers, we found extremely reassuring. We liked the fact that you specialise in finding buyers for companies of our size and offered the necessary experience and skills to not only identify, but negotiate with acquirers much larger in size than ourselves. Given our sector, your measures to safeguard our Business from the potential hazards of selling proved extremely valuable."

    Christopher Pratt
    Superclean Services Wothorpe Limited
  • “I’ve worked with Acquire on a number of deals and they are always a pleasure to deal with: approachable and always available. I was impressed by the quality and professionalism of their service throughout this matter, not just in finding a “best fit” buyer, but in managing their clients’ expectations of the selling process and keeping the momentum of the deal going right through to completion.”

    Matt Worsnop
    Partner | BHW Solicitors
  • "Just a short note to thank you and your team for making a very stressful time easy to get through. The process was new to me and with your constant guidance, invaluable knowledge and support for both me and the buyer the deal was completed without any issues. Once again thank you very much and I will enjoy my retirement."

    Peter Meredith
    Deetronic Fire Systems Limited
  • "Within days of marketing we started receiving calls, Acquire vetted all calls to qualify the interest of the potential buyers. With the information gathered by Acquire we were able to make decisions on who we met. Acquire ensured that we were fully protected with non-disclosure agreements which gave us the confidence to discuss our business openly at meeting and offer stage."

    Rory Perkins
    Pyranet UK Ltd
  • "Our experience with Acquire throughout our purchase negotiations has been very positive. They were responsive to matters which needed a quick resolution and handled sensitive matters with care and professionalism. Altogether a positive experience and a company I would use again for further acquisition opportunities."

    Andrew Cairns
    Murray Farmcare Limited
  • "I would like to put on record my thanks to the team at Acquire for the high levels of service and professionalism provided at all times during the selling process. I am happy to recommend Acquire at every opportunity and have no hesitation in putting Acquire forward as an expert in the field of Specialist Company Sales."

    Graeme Hawes
    Peterlee Glass Company Limited
  • "As a manufacturing business approaching £3m turnover we found that Acquire Business Sales were an ideal fit to manage the confidential marketing of our Business. From an initial meeting with their Managing Director, it took only a few weeks to have the Company installed on their portfolio of businesses for sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Acquire to other owners who are looking for a reliable Broker to achieve a 'best-fit' sale of their business."

    Derek Mcintyre
    Kayfoam Limited
  • "Confidentially selling a c.£5m to £10m Speciality Chemicals Manufacturer is no easy task, but working with Acquire simplified the process considerably and added immeasurable value to the overall deal. Considering our sector, it is also remarkable that you kept the sale confidential right up to closing. I believe that in completing this deal to AFCO you have more than delivered on your initial proposal to sell my Company. You sourced me an International acquirer with a global expansion plan, which can only be good news for the future of this 130-year old Business and its loyal employees."
