Service Businesses Companies for Sale

  • Primary Category: Other Service Businesses for Sale

This company provides document scanning, storage and shredding solutions to escrow companies that provide them with secure document retention that meets CA Department of Real Estate (CA DRE) requirements. This is a great lifestyle business that provides reasonably flexible hours of operation and time commitment. Work a lot or work less, the choice is yours as the new owner of this business.

Service to customers starts with pickup of files at the customer's facility and ends with delivery of a thumb drive that contains digitized files in a PDF format. The tasks in between are comprised of file/document prep (staple removal etc.), digitizing via high speed scanning, and storage to a thumb drive. This process is somewhat unique and appealing to customers as it doesn't involve online cloud storage that can expose sensitive data to hacks.

The current owner has operat4d this business in a fashion that provides the profitability and time commitment that works best for his life. As a result, there is unused equipment capacity that can be accessed without additional capital expenditures, to grow revenues.

Three people are employed not including the husband/wife owners.

The business is located in a remodeled office building in a section of a major boulevard that is undergoing renovation and revitalization. The business has occupied this space since 2009. The facility is comprised of approximately 600 square feet. There is no reception area or manager's office. Customers never visit the business; this is a production facility.
