Mobile Catering Business Too Good To Be True?
My partner and I have decided we really want to take on our own catering trailer. We have seen some really good ones on ebay, then we found someone who was selling his whole business...the trailer, the jeep to tow it, the generator, the pitch and all his contacts etc.
We have been to see the trailer while its working twice now and everything seems ok, but we'r very new and naive to this so not really sure.
I know he needs hygiene certifcate which he has and has explained we need it too, but when I've asked him about gas and electic safety certificates, he says its not needed and nothing to worry about.But I'm sure thats wrong??
He is also very vague on paper work and how we would sign everything over etc.He wants £25k for all of this and so as you can imagine i dont want to waste my saving if its dodgy.
He says he had the trailer made 4 years ago but we haven't seen any reciepts/proof etc.
Its all seems too good to be true and im worried that once I've bought it all everything will go wrong.
Finally, he also won't show us the books so we can see profits margins etc.
What do you think??
