A rare opportunity has risen to acquire an established van-based franchise, located in Stevenage with Agency Express, the UK’s largest provider of professional estate agency board services.
This franchise resale is an owner operated based van business that covers Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Letchworth the surrounding towns, and villages.
Purchased 3 years ago, the existing franchisee is selling his business due to a change in personal circumstance. Before the current ownership, the franchise was successfully run for over 10 years.
“From the very beginning we have found all areas of Agency Express extremely efficient, and we have been more than happy with their service.”
The next owner will benefit from being able to service an existing portfolio of existing clients. Due to the current franchisee boasting an excellent reputation within the local area, this business is ready to continue running in a successful manner and there is excellent potential to further expand the business.
This opportunity would suit a self-motivated, practical, and driven person who enjoys meeting people and working outdoors.
At any one time there are approximately 1.5 million estate agency boards displayed on the streets of the UK and Ireland. Agency Express franchisees and their vehicles are responsible for serving over 60% of UK estate agency offices.
Franchising for over two decades, Agency Express is a ‘bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year ‘and ‘ESTAS Estate Agency Supplier of the Year’ multi award winner. As a result of this, the next owner will be able to take advantage of the support that a successful franchise model can offer.

A big factor was the relatively low start-up cost of the Agency Express franchise. However, the clincher for me was the people when I visited head office in Norwich. I felt a connection, everyone was very friendly and helpful but also professional. I thought to myself I could work with these people.Kevin Keeler, Agency Express Cheltenham and Gloucester
During the last two and a half years, the business has grown to a point where I’m working at full capacity with one van. I really enjoy the freedom of being able to choose the hours I work, and I particularly appreciate being able to work from home.John Burke, Agency Express Colchester
I was filled with confidence from the professional way my enquiries were dealt with by the Agency Express Team. The strength of the franchise package, the impressive growth of the business in the last 12 years and over 100 franchisees proves that the model clearly works.Martin Shuker, Agency Express Lancaster
