Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy garage and MoT business, which is ideally located in Sanquhar, Dumfries & Galloway.
The business was originally established in the 1920s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1993. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £82,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of motor vehicle services including class 4 Mots and general repairs and services. Our client also owns two hearses and two limousines, offering work for local undertakers, as and when needed.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the work and 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 the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the garage, as well as the undertaking work, which is pure profit. The property has had planning permission granted to build 19 flats, which has now lapsed but would possibly be granted again.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Nithsdale garage occupies substantial lock up premises, ideally located within the town of Sanquhar, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland. The business is surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade. Being located just off the busy High Street, the garage benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as having excellent car parking facilities to the front of the premises.
Sanquhar is a town on the River Nith, north of Thornhill and west of Moffat. The town is notable for its tiny Post Office, which was originally established in 1712 and is claimed to be the oldest working Post Office in the world. The town’s main attraction is the Tolbooth Museum, a handsome Georgian town house.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property.
