Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular used car sales and MoT garage business in the East Midlands.
The business was established by our clients in 1990 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £850,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 30%.
Our clients offer a variety of motor services including the sale of all makes of quality used cars, all of which have a full 50 point service, including fluid levels and belt checks. Our clients are also VOSA MoT approved and provide full after sales support and electronic diagnostic checks. The business is also live on the very popular website Autotrader.
The property boasts a very spacious workshop, which can be accessed from the front and side with roller shutter doors. There are separate bays for valeting and a ground floor showroom with a reception/waiting area and two offices. To the front of the premises is a spacious forecourt with space with approximately 25 vehicles. The business is fully equipped to suit the trade and an inventory of all the equipment included is available.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the vehicles and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with repeat business and a huge amount of word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered. The business already has a very informative website in place.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
