At any one time there are approximately 1.5 million ‘For sale’ boards displayed on the streets of the UK and Ireland. With each one needing to be erected, serviced and changed to display ‘sold’, this equates to a multi-million pound service industry.
The market opportunity
Many of these agency boards are currently erected by members of staff employed by the estate agencies themselves, whilst others are erected and maintained by local sign companies that offer very limited geographical coverage and generally offer a poor standard of image and service.
Agency Express was formed specifically to offer a nationwide sign service, via its network of franchisee operators, to both corporate and independent estate agencies across the UK. Our business has benefitted from being in a growth industry that is virtually unaffected by the ups and downs of the property market itself.
Agency Express leads the market
As the only nationwide board management company, with no national competitor, Agency Express is the clear market leader. Our company now erects and maintains as many as one in four of all ‘For Sale’ boards in the UK. Each working day Agency Express operators conduct over 4,500 individual board movements.
Whilst offering a cost-effective solution to all estate agency board requirements, our smart logoed vans complement the strong corporate image displayed by many estate agencies. Our company has also invested in the development of SignMaster3, which is the most advanced online board management system in the industry.
