Testimonial – Mr K Garrity

“I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the service provided by Sovereign Business Transfer, particularly in the account handling support during the sale of our business. Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and offered professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly interaction, that far exceeded my expectations . Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble and you made our business feel unique, never feeling that we were just one of many clients that I know and can understand why, your office and staff have to deal with each day. I have a long experience of domestic and international business and it has been a pleasure to give Sovereign my wholehearted and thorough recommendation

Long may you continue to set standards for others to follow.”

Mr K Garrity

Testimonial – Retail Store, Greater Manchester

“We began looking for a business transfer agent who could professionally handle the sale of our business. The appraisal and fees seemed reasonable (less than we were quoted from a few similar companies) and everyone at your organisation were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were delighted with Matthew’s professionalism, courtesy and the end result”
