Vandervells LLP

Successful Sales

003       005       009



We have sold many businesses over the years and it would be simply impossible to list them all but the following is a snapshot only of actual examples of sales handled by Vandervell’s Partners, from initial valuation to successful completion  from the current year back to the turn of the millennium.

A number in brackets after a business denotes the number of times it has been sold over a period of years when the original purchaser came back to us to sell for them later. Areas stretching from Hereford to West Sussex to Lands End.

Hi John,

  It’s been a pleasure working with you. The only shame is that we didn’t find you sooner.  However, in life everything has a right time.  Will be in touch when we have a completion date.
