Starlight Success

Monday 30 September 2013, by

You’ve probably used Gumtree as a place to buy and sell goods, find a place to live or look for a job. But have you ever thought is as a place to buy or sell a business? Well, Steve Barlow from Welling, Sussex has. We love an entrepreneur, so imagine our excitement when we saw Steve’s ad for his taxi company, Starlight Taxis, on our site.

Steve, has had lots of success on Gumtree over the last few years, selling stuff like pinball machines, and renting out properties. When he decided that he wanted to take things easier and hand over the reins at his 24/7 taxi business, Gumtree was the first place he thought to sell his well-respected company.

Steve not only tells us that he’s had a fantastic response to his ad, but also that he’s using Gumtree to find his next new venture. Good luck, Steve!

We love hearing about your Gumtree success stories, so if you have one, why not tell us about it? You can always tweet us @Gumtree contact us by e-mail.

And if you want to follow in Steve’s footsteps, have a look at the business opportunities advertised on our site.
