About this business for saleServices/Installer/Manufacturing/Work from home
The business was started in 2006 and since inception is successfully servicing the domestic gas installation market in the Pretoria/Centurion/Johannesburg surroundings. It is operated as a “one man” business from home using a small branded bakkie equipped with a canopy and required tools of trade.

The business was not operated between 2010 – 2012 as the owner decided to study full time but since early 2013 had re-started the business successfully, achieving a net profit of ± R18 000 per month. The owner has now been offered employment in his study field and thus wants to sell the business.

The present owner will also provide the necessary training, introduction to suppliers, builders, quotations etc.
