Business Story

Why this business was started

Home burglaries everywhere in the world are on the rise. The weakest part of a door is the cylinder; most can be forced effortlessly in 30 seconds. Fortunately, it can be changed in 5 minutes with no more tools than a screwdriver. The product we sell is the highest-accredited lock in the UK market, and we have the exclusive for Spain and Portugal. It protects against bumping, snapping, picking, fire and much more.

The reason of selling this business

I've embarked on new projects and I no longer have the time or the focus to continue managing Uplocks.

What's involved in running this business

You spend around 30 minutes a day to copy over orders to the system of our third-party logistics partner. Another 30 minutes on Helpscout to answer users' questions and provide customer support (in Spanish). Additionally, you will spend 1 hour every 10 days to prepare backorders and send them to the manufacturer via email. The turnaround time is usually 7 days until the goods are registered in the warehouse. Our content is very well positioned on SEO, ranking on page 1 for critical keywords like "bombin antibumping", and the highest grossing month (10,000 EUR in sales) was achieved only through this; no campaigns and extra investment!

This business was founded: almost 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Experiment with a number of emotional marketing campaigns depicting families and the warmth of a home, something that will be disrupted forever by a robbery, which leaves quite a strong emotional scar. We haven't run a mailing list either; I'd start there. I haven't done Adwords either, so that's another channel. More ideas to discuss.

    Skills to have

    Getting up to speed with this domain is very easy, and I can help.

    I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I detected a niche in the Spanish and Portuguese market and decided to pursue it. The shop has performed very well, but I have little time to continue dedicating to it.

    Secure messaging platform

    You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

    Encrypted payment capture

    Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

    Take time to inspect the business

    Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

    Safe store transfer

    When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
