Guiding Prospective Buyers of Sites Into the Industry
Traditionally, prospective buyers of sites or petrol stations in the South African energy industry have struggled to enter the market. Entering this industry without professional guidance can be a daunting task and can set new dealers up for failure. Your PetroCONNECT advisor plays a key role in understanding your needs, matching you to the right partner and site, negotiating the best possible business solution, guiding you through the process of drawing up a business plan, due diligence compliance, application for finance, oil company interviews, fuel retail license approval - among other things. Furthermore, poor or biased service from brokers in the industry have made it difficult for young entrepreneurs to enter the dealer network. Our key focus is to be your business advisor, not your business broker. After a successful change of ownership, we continue our supporting role throughout your journey supported by the divisions of PetroCONNECT connecting you with the right people.
