Happy to confirm the sale of our business through intelligent. The main contact for my sale was excellent and kept in regular contact. Very good advertising of the business and I was surprised by the number of buyers they introduced - very few time wasters. I believe they also helped raise the money for the buyer too. 5/5 thanks

Do not sign anything at first meeting as you end up paying fees for nothing and contract seems to be binding with no cooling off off time. Contract also ties you in both from a business risk and a personnel risk????? Keep well clear

Good service with loads of information available. Ultimately sold so would not look elsewhere next time, although seemed a relatively large fee to pay on sale. That said, nothing to compare to, and as I say would use again tomorrow. Happy to recommend to anyone selling or buying.

I worked for this business and left due to personal reasons mid 2015. You won't find a more client focused business anywhere, very professional and the most motivating place I've worked. Selling a business has so many facets, if your not successful it's not because the agent hasn't tried - hearing this is v frustrating knowing the industry. If your looking for fairness and high quality then use this company, genuine market leaders.

Honest review

Service

Quality

Value

I was asked by this company to comment on them as I had a good experience, so I have. Whilst not being the cheapest option for me selling my business, they were certainly the right choice. Very professional throughout and offered sound advice constantly through the sale of my two businesses. Both sold in fair timescales and I got what was considered an above average sale price on both. Fees were fair given success, but nobody likes paying fees do they!? Any bad reviews on here I suggest are from sellers who haven't sold successfully, and the reality having sold many small companies is that often a business is just simply unsaleable.

A real rip-off avoid at all cost!!

Service

Quality

They were invited to offer a free no obligation quote to sell the business. They then give you a convincing sales spiel and unwittingly get you to sign a contract which you are bound to pay the up-front fee without any get out clause - disgraceful. Please please please do not use this company. Like other reviews this negative comment will be falsely be followed with a 5 star comment - I'm absolutely speechless by the conduct of this company.

I'm surprised at the comment below, I have been selling my business with intelligent for 8 weeks and have had viewings and an offer so far (albeit not quite enough yet) however they have been fantastic so far. Marketing is excellent as is the sales brochure in comparison to the other jokers I saw. If your business doesn't sell, it's easy to point a finger however having done this all before sometimes there just isn't a buyer. Yes you pay a small fee whoever that's peanuts in comparison to doing it yourself. Anyway rant over fingers crossed

After seeing their offer for a no obligation consultation I met with a consultant with the view for putting my business for sale.

The consultant was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about his industry and gave me a fair valuation and unbiased advice. I will certainly be using IBT to handle my sale.

Can't comment on value as I wasn't paying their fee, the seller who I bought my business from did. My sale was handled excellently, including meetings at their offices with the seller to thrash out a deal. Very professional and would use to sell. Seem to advertise on bus4sale, Dalton's etc where I was looking prominently, maybe if you didn't sell it's your business not the marketing or lack of trying ! Ps- anyone buying a business I also used Lloyd's business loan who were superb.

I sold my business through intelligent having vein referred to them by a friend. Paid a higher commission than some others quoted but got the result and that's what mattered. Not sure why people are loaning about not selling having paid a small fee - maybe your business was the problem! Only small issue was with solicitors who dragged the sale out, but as my agents they were excellent.

BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN DEALING WITH THESE PEOPLE

Service

Quality

Value

I paid £300 (£250 + VAT) up front for them to sell my business, with the agreement of paying a further £3000 (£2500 + VAT) if the business sold (this was payable even if I found a buyer myself). They told me they had sold a number of businesses like mine. I had a six month contract with them (it turned out that I could not get out of the contract for six months and 28 days as I had to give them 28 days notice after the six month period – be careful to read their contract very carefully and ignore anything they may verbally tell you to the contrary). After nearly 4 months they had not found me a single potential buyer – I had not even received one phonecall from anyone who may be interested in buying my business. But how about this: in the 4 months before I signed up with them, through my own efforts, I had generated over a dozen enquiries. Judging by my experience, you are better off trying to sell your business yourself – you will know much more about your potential buyers and how to reach them (even Ebay generated more enquiries than these people). After nearly 4 months the only way I could get out of the agreement was by paying them £500 (this figure was reached after some very difficult negotiation – they initially wanted £1500 to terminate the contract) – if you add this to the initial fee, they ended up charging me £800 for absolutely no result. A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME.
