About Steve

Steve Smith has been involved in the transport and logistics industry since 1988. He initially began working in the UK with a leading international logistics company based out of London. When returning home in 1991, he started his own international moving business which he successfully grew before selling it in 2014.

Before joining ABC, Steve held senior management roles with two of Australasia’s leading moving companies. Steve has always enjoyed sales and marketing; he appreciates the value of a good brand, a loyal customer base, great staff, and the power that a positive culture can bring to a business.

Having managed his own business for 23 years, he understands the highs and lows of business ownership and what it means to sell something you spent years building.

Steve's testimonial

"I was recently the purchaser of a business of which Steve was the broker. Steve managed to balance the vendors and purchaser’s concerns with great diplomacy and understanding. I told Steve that if I ever decided to sell my business, I would go to him. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve as your broker if you are going to sell your business."

Ed Dutton - Purchaser

"I recently purchased a business through Steve at ABC Business Sales, I found him to be very professional and efficient during the process. I would certainly recommend his services whether you are buying or selling a business."

Bevan Abercrombie - Purchaser

"I sold my automotive business with ABC Business Brokers Steve was brilliant in all areas. It was very organised and within days my business was listed at a much higher price than I had anticipated and there was a lot of interest.
Being the first business I have sold, I found a lot of areas stressful, but I simply called, Steve answered and the problems were discussed and managed immediately.
My business also had some complications which Steve managed quickly and professionally. Steve was very easy to talk to, I never felt like I could not approach him, and he presents himself in a way that puts the vendor and purchaser at ease.
Everything went smooth and looking back there is no way I could have managed this on my own or see it happening with another business.
If I sell again, anywhere in the country it will 100% be Steve who is my broker."

Your valuation was spot on and you stuck to the task of finding a suitable buyer relentlessly.
