A leading estate agency signboard company in the North of England is continuing in business under new ownership after the original company behind it has gone into voluntary liquidation.
Snaith Signs, a Middlesbrough-based business formerly owned by Snaith Estate Agent Services Ltd, offers an estate agency design, print, erection and management service that includes For Sale and To Let boards across the whole of North East England and North Yorkshire south to the A59.
The liquidator of Snaith Estate Agent Services Ltd, insolvency specialist Begbies Traynor, says this company is being wound up voluntarily.
A spokesperson for Snaith Signs says the signboard firm continues to trade as normal with no suspension of its service to estate agents. It is now being run by a new company with the same director and registered address, UK Estate Agent Signs Ltd.
Business as normal
Snaith Signs operates regionally with its residential signboards as well as offering a national service to commercial property agents including its own app.
The business has also been pushing to widen its residential operation via a franchising push offering packages starting at £22,500 and, it is claimed, on target earnings of £36,000.
Unusually, Snaith Signs also provides its residential and commercial clients a free listing for their properties on its own portal.
“We present our unique Snaith Property Finder website to all our residential and commercial estate agent and letting agent clients with the offer of For Sale and To Let property advertising completely free of charge in our Property Listing Section,” the company says on its website.
