Another great Ernest Wilson review



From: Stephen Senior
Sent: 23 January 2015 11:53
To: Stuart Moorhouse
Subject: RE: Candle Shop, Sunbridge Road, Bradford

I have bought and sold many businesses through Ernest Wilsons for a little over 22 years, from Gift Shops and Cafes, to Clothes Shops and Discount Stores, now also National Franchises. In this time they have earned my trust and respect, for their honesty, integrity and plain old hard work.

The Staff are professional and courteous with a wealth of experience and knowledge, many of whom I have known throughout the years of business dealings. I no longer class them as business associates, but as friends.

If you are buying or selling a business you will not find a better more comprehensive service, under one roof!

From sale to completion in less than 2 weeks

When the landlord of Fountain Fisheries in Yeadon, Leeds received the keys back from his Tenant, he instructed Ernest Wilsons to find a new Tenant to purchase the fixtures & fittings and sign a new lease. 

Immediately, the sales team contacted a number of Ernest Wilson clients whom had registered interest in fish & chips shops and several viewings were arranged for the following day. 3 offers were received and Ernest Wilsons, on behalf of the landlord, negotiated favorable terms and completion took place within 2 weeks.

Business and relationships go together like a horse and carriage

Another review from a satisfied client

We believe that all businesses should have a good relationship with both their suppliers and customers. Without knowing each other a new supplier will promise the earth but will rarely supply, however the reasons and excuses will be bountiful until the truth comes out months later.

We have known Ernest Wilsons through the buying process, have kept in contact for a variety of reasons over the years of the business and they were the obvious choice to sell the business, they knew us, we knew them, they knew the business, there were no unrealistic promises, no reasons, no excuses just facts and they went out of their way to help and we agreed the final sale within 3 weeks of the initial asking to sell. We couldn’t have asked for more!
