How to Sell Off a Business

I'm looking for some advice on how to sell a business. My father in law has run a shipping business (kind of like an independent mail boxes etc.) for the past 3 decades or so and he's getting burned out. I don't know much about it, but I think the finances and everything are pretty unorganized.

I don't know where to start in selling it. Should he hire a business broker? He's thought about hiring a broker but he doesn't want to pay for something that he can probably do himself. How organized do the finances need to be? What all needs to be done?
