“Over the years I have purchased and sold many Companies through Alan J Picken. I have found his Company to be highly efficient and extremely motivated. In this day and age it's very refreshing to deal with someone with the honesty and integrity of Mr. Picken. In the past I have also tried other business transfer agents but his Company is in a different league. When I have another business to sell I will only use him.”

“We recently sold our cafe and deli in Skipton through Alan J Picken. Alan himself came out and valued the premises and we placed it on the market. Within a week we had a viewing and an offer for the business. The cafe sale completed within five weeks of us putting it on the market with Alan. During this period we always found Alan and his staff very helpful and efficient.”
