Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well known and highly regarded pet crematorium having been lovingly run by the vendors for the past 26 years and now only coming onto the market due to their pending well earnt retirement.

Set in a beautiful location on the North Norfolk coast offering views towards the sea, this peaceful place provides serenity and a sense of calmness to all that visit as well as to the owner whilst working there.

A long established crematorium such as this has built up a large client base but given the ever increasing requirement for this type of service the potential to further grow the turnover is significant and presents a very interesting proposition to a new owner. It can prove difficult to obtain licences for this type of business, competition is therefore limited.

THE BUSINESS ITSELF

The businesses current turnover is in the region of £88k pa, however the adjusted net profit margins are in excess of 70% which clearly shows the potential for growth and the benefits that this would bring. The current owners enjoy the lifestyle that the business currently provides with normally only 2 days a week spent at the crematorium, although they are available if needed based at their home office.

Clients are referred to the business via recommendation either from past customers or local vets with little marketing carried out. Therefore there is scope to increase revenue if a new operator was minded to do so with solid a foundation already in place and plenty of capacity to accommodate growth.

With other services provided such as the provision of personalised caskets, there is further opportunity to expand these provisions to cater for the requirements of the clients. The disposal of sharps boxes and medical waste is also provided to local vets and again this can be pushed out to a wider number of surgeries.

ACCOMMODATION

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The total plot extends to c.1.5acres being predominately set as delightful landscaped gardens which are maintained to the highest of standards by the owner.

Set behind gates is a large gravelled parking area suitable for several vehicles. To one side is the log cabin building which is used as the office, and to the other is the brick garage type building where the incinerator is situated.

The log cabin whilst used as an office when required also doubles up as accommodation which the owner has stayed in many times over the years as a 'coastal getaway'. There is the possibility of formalising this due to the long usage subject to planning and/or building regulation consent being granted. You enter the log cabin to the front where you step into the lounge/office. A fully fitted shower room and WC is in one room to the rear and then a further room is fitted with kitchen units, worktop and sink together with a further door to the outside. The sleeping area is on the mezzanine floor above.

The garage provides ample storage space and room to work. The 'Incol' incinerator has been fully serviced and maintained, it being re-bricked approx. 1yr ago and the chimney and flue completely renewed approx. 5yrs ago. The eco-friendly motor is oil fuelled and provides cost effective running of the incinerator.

Finally, within the gardens is a timber frame structure set as a small chapel of rest where clients can sit with their loved ones before saying goodbye.
