Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Viking Laundry, a very well established and profitable commercial laundry business trading since 2006.

The ‘Turn-key’ business opportunity is now being made for sale due to family commitments.

The business currently only undertakes work from its impressive list of 150 clients however we believe any new owner could easily increase the turnover by either increasing the current radius covered as well as undertaking some domestic work.

Our client takes work form the many hotels/guest houses within the area as well as popular choice of caravan parks (both of which are now enjoying an unprecedented increase in customer demand).

The fully equipped unit can undertake large loads of washing, drying and pressing of the thousands of sheets, bedding, towels required.

All work is collected and delivered on an agreed weekly scheduled route system with an integrated invoice system in place to ease the process of calculating accurate billing.

There are currently 3 leased vans covering each collection round.

Our client admits all work is simply referred, they currently undertake no advertising or keep up to date with any social media or website platforms.

We recommend any new owner could look to expand operations by increasing both staffing levels and increasing current trading hours.

Key selling points –

  • Low running costs
  • Zero busines rates
  • Loyal team in place
  • Opportunity to grow.
  • Handover period offered.
  • All equipment paid for
  • Secure trading unit
Very rarely do established laundry businesses of this standard and location come on to the open market and we therefore highly recommend early enquiries to avoid disappointment.



We are advised that the business is being sold on a Leasehold basis, with 6 months remaining on the 6 year lease. The rent is £800 per month, with £0 rates payable. 


The busines hours are; 

Monday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Tuesday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Wednesday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Thursday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Friday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Saturday – 9:00am to 2:00pm
Sunday - Closed


We are advised that the business has 1 full time and 1 part time staff members.
