When Is It Right To Sell Your Propane Company?

As the owner of a propane business, ‘when and how do I sell my business?’ is a really important question? How can you know when it’s the proper time to sell your propane company? What’s right for you and your family? What tax implications are there to consider? There are so many variables to thing about: Will your customers still receive the incredible service they’ve come to expect? How will a sale affect your employees and their loyalty to the company? What will the future hold for you?

Where do I begin?

Those questions are really only the beginning, and chances are you’ve considered all of them, and more, as you’ve been weighing your options. No one can tell you when it is the right time to sell your propane company except for you. If you aren’t totally convinced to sell your propane business, I have one word of advice—don’t. But, if you know in your heart it’s time; then please contact me at ThompsonGas today. I’m Dan Carrigan and I can be reached at 913-638-8677.

As the Vice President of Business Development with ThompsonGas, that recommendation may sound a bit counterproductive. Yes, I may believe the right time for you to sell your propane company is today, but in our experience we need you to be convinced before we take many steps forward. In fact, I suggest that every propane business owner who is considering to sell perform his or her own research. I’d be glad to help with that as well.

Do you have any idea what your propane company is really worth? Have you asked the really important questions that aren’t financially based, like how your team members will be treated after the acquisition and what your client base can expect?

You may believe once you start inquiring about selling your propane company that the proverbial cat will be out of the bag and you’ll be forced to follow through with a sale, even if you’re not ready. That is precisely why we created this website. Here you will have the ability to discover exactly what you should know when it comes to selling your propane business. In addition, my contact information is also on the site so you can communicate with me directly and confidentially regarding any questions you may have.

When is the right time to sell? As I said earlier, every propane company is different—there is no simple answer. What we can do, however, is provide you with all the answers you need to make an educated, informed decision.

Please feel free to call us to discuss your options.
