Property description

Please quote reference B05550

Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to the market this well established and busy vehicle repair business, established in the 1970s and purchased by our client in 1989. The business is now offered for sale due to retirement and has been priced to sell quickly. The list of assets included would be valued at more than the price placed on the business, therefore we recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The business currently operates 5 ½ days per week and generates a good turnover and gross profit result each year. The business really needs a 2nd mechanic to take on the workload which is available in the area and any new owner could easily double turnover by employing a new mechanic.

Our client offers a variety of vehicle repair services including batteries, brakes and clutches, air conditioning and re-gas, exhaust systems and cambelts, suspension and steering, fuel injection and oil changes, servicing and arranging MOTs.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. Adding a new website, Facebook page would allow the new homeowners in the area to know where they are what services they can provide.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a thriving business in a prime trading location, therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
