"We focus on a small number of high quality businesses, meaning that your business receives the attention that it deserves."
Lloyds Business Brokers has pioneered far more effective model of Business Brokerage. Rather than fill a Website pages with 100's of listings - hoping some might sell (the traditional ineffective model), Lloyds concentrate on handling a limited number of selected assignments and focusing on each until sold.
Each broker is allocated a small number of assignments (up to 6) so he can fully familiarise himself with each one to the point where he can present the business in the best possible way. Typically he will not take new assignments until one has been sold.
The result for you is that your business will be handled with the care and attention that is required to secure you the best possible price.
Lloyds Consultants are qualified Professional Business Brokers with a wealth of business experience. We guide business owners step by step through the process of selling or buying a business. Typically, each consultant will only undertake a relatively small number of select assignments at any one time, ensuring a very high success rate for Lloyds clients.
