How to sell a warehouse storage business

Operating in the storage/warehousing sector brings specific challenges and issues that need to be addressed prior to placing your business for sale. Selling My Business has extensive experience in the sector, and can offer professional assistance at every stage of the selling timeline.

Pre-planning your sale

It is crucial to plan your business sale well in advance, so what areas should you be thinking about?

  • When to sell your business
    Are market conditions improving or are they at their peak? Proactively timing your sale can bring significant rewards in terms of the interest generated and the final price achieved.
  • The reasons why you are selling
    Clearly articulating your reasons for selling the business helps to instil confidence in potential buyers. You may be approaching retirement, or feel that the business has served its purpose and want to move on to a new venture.
  • Your goals and objectives from the sale
    Do you have a baseline value that you want to achieve, and/or a specific timescale in which to sell your business? You need to define your main goals and objectives to make the sales and marketing process more effective.
  • Tax-efficient extraction of value
    Extracting the value from your business in the most tax-efficient manner is vital.

10 Key Questions to Consider Before Appointing an Advisor
Our Essential Checklist to Selling your Business

What challenges do you face as a storage/warehouse business?

Investment in technology

Extended and complex supply chains can lead to inefficiencies if not carefully managed. Investment in modern technologies and software may be a financial challenge, but it improves various business functions including stock control, and helps to meet new consumer demands with regard to speed of delivery.

Low capacity

The ecommerce boom has led to a shortage of storage space in the UK, so it is important to organise your warehouse or storage facility for maximum use. This could involve investment in narrow-aisle forklift and handling equipment, for example, or perhaps a better system of stock control.


Security is a key issue for all storage and warehousing businesses - security features should be clearly evident around the facility to gain the confidence of potential users.

Other considerations when selling your storage/warehouse business


Confidentiality is a key aspect of selling your business if you are to avoid losing sensitive business information to your competitors. You will need to draw up an effective confidentiality agreement prior to releasing the Sales Memorandum to interested parties.


The negotiation stage can be long and arduous, particularly if you have limited professional support. Failing to achieve your objectives from the sale, particularly in terms of the final price, or being unable to arrive at a beneficial arrangement regarding post-sale warranties and indemnities, could ultimately damage the hard work you have put into your business over the years.

Buyer due diligence

You will need to make sure the figures and information you provide to prospective buyers is accurate and reliable, otherwise they could reduce the price offered or withdraw from the sale completely.

Selling your storage/warehouse business requires careful pre-planning to ensure it is placed on the market at the optimum time and in the best condition to attract buyers.
