How to Spot Quality Pest Companies for Sale

Researching pest companies for sale?

Look for the following 3 quality indicators to make sure you’ve got a good offer in front of you!

A Growing Arsenal Of Eco-friendly Pest Control Solutions

In 2015, a Nielson study surveyed 30,000 consumers from 60 countries to assess how different brands’ “commitment to sustainability” affected their sales performance. Put simply, they were testing whether eco-friendly companies had an edge over less sustainable brands.

The answer is yes.

Overwhelmingly, survey respondents indicated that they would be more willing to pay more for sustainable goods and services, such as eco-friendly pest control solutions. In total, 73% of Millennials and 66% of global consumers said they would do so, up from only around 50% in 2014. This trend has only intensified in recent years, as environmentalism continues to become one of the most important issues of the 21st century.

The majority of respondents also indicated that sustainability was one of the top deciding factors when making a purchase decision. That means even less well-known brands could secure sales by offering eco-friendly products.

Knowing this, it’s critical that you only consider pest companies for sale if they offer some form of eco-friendly products or services, like Pestmaster’ Environmental Pest Management solutions.

We have been dedicated to developing sustainable solutions for more than 40 years. It’s just one of the many reasons we’ve been consistently ranked as one of the top-100 pest control brands by PCT.

If the company you’re researching is limited to caustic pesticides, cross them off your list.

A Strong Digital Identity

In the Digital Age, it’s imperative that you have a strong online presence. According to Web Credibility Research from Stanford, as much as 75% of a company’s credibility in the eyes of modern consumers is based on their digital identity and website design.

Only research pest companies for sale that have quality online assets. That includes a professional website full of high-quality content, active and engaging social media accounts (like Twitter and Facebook), and a number of strong reviews from happy customers on third-party sites. Take a look at our web presence to get an idea of what you ought to be looking for.

Affordable Start-up Costs

Starting a pest control company is relatively inexpensive, so long as you’ve got a smart business plan behind you.

In addition to requiring minimal equipment, the Pestmaster model gives you the option of running your business from home with no additional employees (with the option to scale up anytime you’re ready and willing!). In this way, we eliminate major overhead and operating expenses, which allows you to keep more of what you earn and launch your business without a bank-breaking investment.

You can view our complete start-up cost breakdown on the Pestmaster Costs and Criteria page.

Avoid pest companies for sale that charge more than this. After all, Pestmaster is a nationally recognized brand and GSA Contract Holder that is consistently ranked in the top-100 by PCT, so you’d be hard-pressed to find a more qualified system. Why pay more for less?

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster of Central New York

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”
