Buy A Route
Buyers have a lot of questions about buying a business. Sealey Business Brokers is here to assist you and answer your questions. Here are some of the typical questions we get from prospective buyers that are interested in purchasing a route or business:
In most cases owners require cash for their route. We do have a lender that will make loans for pool routes or vending routes. If you’re looking to obtain financing to buy a route give us a call.
Every seller is required to sign a “non-compete” clause prohibiting them from contacting the customers.
Each account is guaranteed by the seller for at least 60 days from the date of the sale. In addition, we hold back 10% of the purchase price in an escrow fund in the event of a lost account.
Yes, you will be trained on the accounts that you bought so that you’ll be familiar with the both the route, customer and equipment. Typically training is conducted over 30 days and include hands on repairs as well as weekly maintenance. Additional training can be included to ensure you’re comfortable with your new route.
Sellers are willing to assist you if you have questions after the sale. We highly recommend you join a local association like IPSSA (Independent Pool and Spa Service Association) to mingle with experienced professionals in your industry and build your network. It’s always great to be able to call on other professionals to bounce ideas and questions off of.
YSellers typically fall into one of three categories. Either they are retiring, have too many accounts, or looking to get into another industry.
Thank you Arif. We appreciate your efforts in negotiating a deal that worked for everyone in a timely manner.
I didn’t know the first thing about buying a pool business, but Arif was very helpful and informative.

We really enjoyed working with Arif Sealey and Sealey Business Brokers. Arif stayed on top of things and we felt comfortable through the whole process of selling our route. He answered our questions with ease. He also communicated well between us and the buyer so that both parties understood each step we were taking. We would definitely recommend him and Sealey Business Brokers to others in the industry! We always appreciate working with professionals who take care of their customers and this company does just that!
You really helped us in our time of need. We were desperate to sell the pool business fast and you really helped us fast. Thanks again.
