Buying an Established Catering Van Business
I was just wondering about buying an established van from eBay or one of the other sites. First of all it seems a little strange to me that people try to sell vans with promises like, I will give you all my contacts for the events and you will easily book them or you will have no problem getting into the events with this van by just applying to the festivals.
My big question is, Why don't they book all of the events themselves if it is so easy and then sell the van as a real established business(going concern). Surely they would be able to sell the van for much more money?
I know that I would pay a lot more knowing that the events are already booked. I don't know why but I'm having real trouble finding a van that is really established ( After all of my investigations it seems to me that any van that is for sale for less than £15,000 and is claiming to be an established business generating good income is misleading.
I have come to understand that a person has to pay £20,000 + to buy a van that is really established and making a good net profit(at least £20,000 per year after costs)Would love to get some feedback on this.
