Succession planning is always hard for small business, no matter how good you are or how long you've been there. Sometimes it's just time to go when age or health catches up with you but, finding a suited buyer isn't always easy if you are in a regional area - particularly if scarce skills are required to operate the business. Check out Signography in Shepparton for a good opportunity.

Good businesses have been known to just close and sell up, much to the disdain of customers who would have liked to continue paying for the good services it provides. This is why Bill Hickman, owner of Signography in the great Victorian town of Shepparton - population over 50,000 - is putting a very low WIWO price of just $60,000 on his sign business, established for over seventeen years and staffed by 'fantastic, good people.' Signography is fully equipped for the customers it serves, with Roland printer, a CNC router and the usual laminators and tools.
Bill describes Signography as: "A well established signage and design business in operation for more than 17 years. We have an excellent customer data base. Equipment includes a flatbed router, Roland wide format Printer, Laminator, and much more, all paid for - nothing is under lease or finance. There are good forward orders and current stock levels. Staffing levels equivalent to two full time. Reason for selling is due to ill health and wanting to retire. Annual rental $16k. Sale on a walk in - walk out basis. Price asked is $60k includes all of the above."
For someone wanting a change from the big city, this would be a great opportunity, or maybe one of the franchise groups could take it over, re-brand it and offer it as a franchised business. The customers and orders are already there, so it would generate cash from the get-go.
