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.

Thanks for all your help. Vandervells certainly came up with good quality potential purchasers – two offers inside 4 months when we had not a sniff from a year with ************. You can use that in your marketing if you like!
We’ll speak before the end (!) I’m sure
Hello John…………..Finally everything has been signed, sealed and delivered and completion is complete. We would like to thank you for your service and diligence for seeing it through to the end and may I say we would not hesitate to use your services again in the future.
