Profitable VW Business 4 sale, does $100k annually Price: 100k
BamBoomWagens.com does six figures in sales annually, in Buena Park, Southern California -- and is for sale! You do NOT need to know anything about the stuff we do, you do not even need to know about VWs!! I will teach you all that you desire to learn. In fact, this business can be moved anywhere and does not NEED to be in Southern California (thats just where most of the worlds old VWs happen to still be putting around) -- Most of our income is from shipping around the country and world, so that can be done from anywhere.
Below, I will go into light detail regarding what exactly is being offered, what would be required of you if you bought it, and I will answer the ovbvious question -------> if the business is profitable, WHY AM I SELLING IT rather than just hiring more help????
BamBoomWagens.com makes bamboo and wood interior items for VWs 1979 and down, for 9 years. Now, its a different style and not everyone likes that style...but anyone who does has to come through us. There is no competition, its a niche market -- and its more than enough for one business to handle. In addition, we are a stock interior shop so no need to lose out on that market -- its just that stock places you can find anywhere...we're the only ones in the world doing THIS, so thats what we mostly stick with. The main bamboo & wood items -- Door Panels, Headliners, and Floor Mats are sent all around the country and world. Here in-house, we can do seat upholstery, window rubber seal replacement, etc. all the stuff a normal restoration shop would do.
Very negotiable on almost everything. Take, leave, or modify any of the below.
1) Me, if you want me. The business will be all yours, Im not asking to share in it, but I WILL work for you...if you want me. Southern California is the highest concentration of these old VWs, but my family and I are even possibly willing to pick up and move to wherever you may be. No joke. (Actually, we kinda hate California).
2) If you dont want me long term, I'll train you, or anyone else you hire to do everything we do here. How to make all the products, and how to install them. I have easy to follow patterns for EVERYTHING and every variation for every model year. In addition, how to replace window rubber, and tons of other in-house services so you can be your own VW restoration shop.
3) An awesome 1967 VW Bus and 64 Bug. Yes, there are up to two vehicles that can be included in the sale! These are the flagships. Not necessary for you to purchase, just thought it might be a perk to the right person. You buy a new business that makes money AND get something cool to tool around and show off in. Both are multiple award winners, in movies and TV shows, and you can drive them anywhere. They come with tons of fun attention grabbing accessories for shows or just showing off. Just look at the pics!! The price doesnt include these, but can be added (I have very reasonable numbers in mind).
4) Dig this: Im willing to provide a legally binding guarantee to an agreed upon time frame of when you'll get your money back, and put a portion in escrow till you do. This is to help prove that my business ISN'T failing and Im just trying to cash out and run. If youre going to be "all-in", Im showing you that Im willing to be too.
REASON FOR THE SALE:
If you are intrigued, youve probably already visited the website...if not, please do. Basically, I am a craftsman, an artist -- this business needs a manager. I am currently wearing all hats, and that has this business maxed out at right around $100k per year. ($100k in 2016; $107k in 2017; $112k in 2018). Im working as hard and as much as a person can work and Im stuck at that number. Meanwhile, dig this: I have over 1000 emails that date back a year that remain unanswered. I havent had time to even open them. These are interested customers that WANT to give me money, yet I dont have the time of day for them. Obviously, I know that doesnt represent 1000 DIFFERENT potential customers, many people email multiple times. But, my analytics show that the average customer order last year was $1400, so if even a measly 50 of those 1000 emails had resulted in a sale that would be an additional 70k -- all because someone had the time of day for them. That someone could be you.
Right now, I make all the products -- but I also answer emails and phone calls, order and pick up material, do the paperwork, the licenses, the taxes -- all this takes me away from my work bench. If you can do the day-to-day and just keep me at that work bench cranking out product, we can both do better than Im doing alone now. But, lets say you buy the business and change ABSOLUTELY NOTHING...it will still make 100k a year on its own, without trying.
IF YOURE EXTRA MOTIVATED:
Every time I go to VW shows, I make money...well, I dont have time to go anymore. I used to get a lot of customers through Instagram...well, I dont have time to post anymore. Guess what? Part of your job could be to take YOUR new cars around to VW shows (is that even really a JOB?) and post pics along the way, pass out flyers, and sell product. All that honestly does generate more money, Ive seen it personally. But it doesnt get done now cause Im a one-man-show.
Im just happier as a grunt, rather than a tycoon. I built this into a success with a lot of hard work. Now I just want to simplify and get some of my time with my family back. I dont have the mind of a boss. That honestly is what this is all about.
By the time all the dust settles, if I dont have $100k in my bank account, then what am I doing this for? So thats the bottom dollar I'll take, and the bare bones version of the business for you. The best deal is for $200k which gets you the business, the bus, the bug, me as your employee for one year, and a guarantee that you'll get a return on your investment within a certain time frame. If you dont want me to work for you, we'll take that off the price. If you dont want the vehicles, we'll take that off the price.
You got any other ideas? I'll hear whatever you got. Let me know your ideal, and I'll tell you how close I can get to it.
