Business Description
Aspire is delighted to offer for sale this lawnmower and gardening equipment sales, service and parts business, ideally located on a busy main road in a suburb of North Manchester. With wide, prominent frontage, the business benefits from very high roadside visibility and enjoys free car parking directly outside the premises.
There are a variety of commercial properties and local shops in the vicinity, and the area is surrounded by a densely populated residential area. Local transport is easilly accessible, with a bus stop a few paces away.
The premises are situated very close to the M60, Manchester ring road, with Manchester city centre approximately 5 miles away.

The business was established and has been operated by the current owner for over 30 years and it is only now available for sale due to retirement. The owner has developed an enviable reputation in the area, facilitating an extensive client list including numerous corporate clients such as bowling and golf clubs, housing associations and the local council.
The shop retails a wide range of gardening equipment including a variety of lawnmowers, leaf blowers, strimmers, chain saws and a selection of manual gardening tools. Parts and safety equipment are also available. There is a workshop on the premises, providing repairs, maintenance and servicing to all makes and models of equipment.

The business trades from a substantial 2-storey, end terrace property with sizeable display windows, and an entrance door, secured by roller shutters.
Internally, the open-plan retail sales area is well equipped for the trade, and is racked and shelved to perimeter walls, providing ample product display areas for parts and equipment. There are also numerous free-standing displays and a wide sales counter, accommodating the cash register and card machine.
An additional room is used as a workshop, and this has generous workspaces, and shelving and racking for parts and tools. This room faces onto the main road and benefits from an entrance door.
Also to this floor are an office and kitchen area, and staircases leading up to the first floor and down to the basement.

The main workshop is located in the extensive basement, which leads out to street-level at the rear of the shop, making this ideal for vehicular access. The workshop is fully equipped for the trade, accommodating an array of specialist equipment along with ample working areas and storage. Also within the basement there are 2 x store rooms, scrap store room, new machine store and a WC. The entrance is secured by a roller shutter door.

The first floor is accessed via an internal staircase. To this floor there is a stock room, oil and strimmer cord store, and a WC.

The business is currently run at a pace to suit and there is very little competition in the area, offering good potential for expansion. Introducing a hire option would certainly bring in new customers and increase turnover.
Establishing a professional website would showcase the services on offer and fully promote the retail showroom and available services. This would also present additional marketing opportunities.
The owner has built up a dependable team of staff members, who would be happy to continue within the business.
