Selling a rental business is complex with countless steps towards successful completion of a deal. We work “on” your business while you do what you do best: work “in” your business. Rental Business Advisors handles the entire sale process and we are keen at structuring deals and negotiating far beyond just the “price” of the business. We care about what you net out--that's what is most important! We are highly proficient at every aspect of selling a rental company, from finances to legal, and very importantly, we are professional sales people, not simply accountants or operations as our only focus. Fred Hageman has personally viewed, analyzed, consulted with or valued over 3,500 rental companies in every single state in the U.S. since 1988. We bring the best practices from the best run rental companies in the country for your benefit, as well as real life experiences to the table for our clients.
WE HAVE “SKIN” IN THE GAME WHEN WE REPRESENT YOUR COMPANY
While many “larger” firms charge hefty up-front retainers, we tailor our arrangements with our clients that make sense, which many times means no up front retainer fees. We only win when our clients do.
WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE ADVISE YOU AS IF WE ARE STAKEHOLDERS IN YOUR COMPANY
Quite simply, we have your back. If we would not agree to something, why should you? We call it like we see it and we hold firm on your behalf. Knowing when to pick and choose your battles is imperative in getting the best deal for your business. We treat our clients and potential purchasers with mutual respect and have countless industry contacts around the country.
