Investment Opportunity

We have already made inroads into the market and we are looking for an investor to help us purchase more second hand trucks.

At our automotive and engineering company we are into truck rebuilds and disassembling. We are located in Zimbabwe, Africa and are dealing mainly with American second hand trucks.

Refurbishment: We buy second hand trucks from around the Southern Africa region for refurbishment. We buy disused or running trucks and rebuild them for sale at a fair and reasonable price at 30 to 50 percent of the buying price.

Disassembling: We buy second hand trucks for disassembling and sell as spares to include in body parts or whole cabs, engine spares or whole engines, diffs, chassis, exhales, etc. for a fair amount. We have been in the business for some time so with some additional capital we will scale up to greater heights. The business will flourish as there is great demand of our services in the transport sector here in Southern Africa. We already have clients around the region.

Competitive Advantage

We have been into the business for some time and have a substantial client base. What we want is to diversify our operations and we have the entire basic layout needed.

Rationale for the deal

We wish to grow into a big corporate that will provide employment, especially to the youth and also offer training in truck rebuilds.

Use of financing

For purchasing second-hand trucks across the region for rebuilds or disassembling.

Opportunity for the investor

We are looking for any investor who is willing to join us. The investor can be hands on director or a silent investor or can appoint someone to represent him in the organisation to serve his interests. Or can be a loan investor availing funds for the purchase of trucks at an agreeable interest rate and repayment period.

This project has a great profit making potential. The profit hinges mainly on volume of sales made and the length of the period between purchasing and rebuilding or deassembling and selling.
