Why Sell With Us

Your choice of business broker will likely be the deciding factor between your business selling quickly and at the very best price, or simply not selling at all. It’s therefore critical to have the very best team working for you.

We know that it takes the right business sales agent to unlock the best opportunities and at Merrill Hays, we’re experts at selling businesses. With over 30 years combined experience in the business sales, mergers and acquisitions market, we are uniquely placed to help you achieve your goals. The following are just some of the many reasons why we continue to be the leading choice for business sellers looking for a trusted business transfer agent.

No Sale, No Fee

We don’t tie you into complicated contracts and unlike most business brokers we charge no upfront fees. We believe in operating simple and fair terms with no hidden clauses. This provides complete piece of mind and total transparency to our clients, whilst ensuring that we’re 100% committed to achieving the successful sale of your business.

Proactive Approach

Unlike many business transfer agents we don’t simply sit back once we gain your instruction in the hope that the perfect buyer will come knocking. Through decades of experience, we have developed a proven and highly proactive approach to selling businesses. Our superior marketing techniques together with our unrivalled buyer sourcing strategies enable us to reach the maximum number of buyers in any given economic climate. Our highly proactive approach ensures we sell your business for its maximum value and in the quickest possible time.

Outstanding Results

At Merrill Hays our priority is to find the right buyers for our clients’ businesses and to negotiate the very best price and deal structure. We’re proud to lead the local market with a consistent track record of achieving sales prices that exceed traditional valuations, together with lower than average days on the market for our clients’ businesses.

Sector Expertise

Put simply, we understand your business. We’re experts in our market sectors and this in-depth sector knowledge gives us unparalleled insight into our clients’ businesses and industries. We know who within your sector is actively looking to acquire businesses just like yours. Our sector expertise is a key competitive advantage in enabling us to understand a business’s individual circumstances and market. It enables us to provide astute exit strategies and refreshing thinking, providing our clients with the right buyers who will recognise the true value of their business.

Client Focus

We pride ourselves on delivering unparalleled service and expertise that’s personalised to each and every client. Unlike most business selling agents we focus on working with a smaller number of clients at any one time, thereby ensuring that you always receive the highest levels of service together with the resources, dedication and personal attention that your sale deserves.

Personal Service

As a small firm, at Merrill Hays our Managing Director will be your direct point of contact and will personally oversee the sale of your business right the way through to completion, always being directly contactable and available for you to speak with. We don't pass you from pillar to post, nor do we delegate the sale of your business to junior members of staff. From the moment we take your instruction, we are 100% focused on you and to delivering unrivalled personal service.
