Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Blunsdon Coach Hire, originally founded by our client in 1977, with a well established loyal customer base.
The business has several contracts with local schools which have recently been renewed and valued at around £195,000. The business holds 8 national discs, 6 of which are active and 2 are in reserve, which are not renewable until 2019.
Included in the sale are 6 coaches:
2010 Cummins King Long - 49 Seats
2009 Scania Irizar i4 - 59 seats
2004 Scania Irizar - 53 seats
2004 Volvo Plaxton B7R 53 seats
2003 Mercedes Neoplan - 53 seats
1990 Volvo B10 - 53 seats
The current coaches are valued approximately over £200,000 and one of the coaches being worth £72,000.
We are advised that there is scope to increase the contract value by around £40,000, perhaps by expanding the private hire, holiday tours or by increasing coaches on the road to 8. We feel that with an injection of marketing and the introduction of a website would pay dividends.
This is a fantastic business opportunity and our client is happy to work alongside the new purchaser for a period of time offering assistance or would be happy to work as either the Transport Manager or as a Driver.
