WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I have recently sold my sandwich shop business using the agents Alan J Picken it has been a pleasure to work with this company from start to finish very professional with a family feel that they care about your sale I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.
HYDE PARK SANDWICH SHOP – DONCASTER
I've both bought and sold businesses with Alan and from both sides of the coin he, along with his son Fraser, guided me through the whole process in a really helpful way. When I came to put my business up for sale I knew Alan was my first choice. From start to finish they are at the
end of a phone with a really friendly, efficient and personal service. I've heard lots of nightmare stories about selling agents and my only advice to anyone who wants to avoid those companies and problems - sell your business with Alan J Picken.
UNION JACK WEAR LTD - KEIGHLEY
I recently sold my business in 3 weeks with Alan J Picken and I can't review them highly enough. I had been burned by other agents and left with no sale and a big bill. Alan and Fraser were so helpful throughout whole process and delivered a quick sale, all within the agreed fees, which were also very reasonable and way cheaper than the competition. Top class service!
HEPWORTH'S DELI - LEEDS
I would like to thank (and recommend) Alan Picken for assisting us in finding a buyer for our business. From the initial valuation meeting through to completion was a 6 month process. Great to deal with, I would highly recommend. Good old fashioned honesty and professionalism is what you get here, bearing in mind I was bombarded with calls from agents all over the country I am delighted to have chosen Alan.
4G VOICE & DATA – CASTLEFORD
Despite having a unique type of speciality business, & having initial reservations about an "off the shelf" transfer agent, Alan J Picken BTA have performed extremely well on my behalf, having sold my business with the minimal of time & fuss. His team along with himself showed an excellent standard of professionalism throughout the whole procedure. Would I use them again, without a doubt! Job well done.
YORKSHIRE BRINE SHRIMP SUPPLIES – BRADFORD
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.
