Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular body shop/accident repair centre in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. The business was established by our clients` in 2010 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` other business interests. The business is open 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £205,500 per annum, with a reported gross profit of approximately 63%.
The turnover is generated from the repair and service of all insurance work from single panel to full re-sprays, private insurance work, fleet and trade work, paintless dent removal and wheel refurbishment. Our clients also offer free quotations, free collection and delivery if required and supply of courtesy cars on request. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the quality of work and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade, as well as word of mouth referrals.
The business already has an excellent website in place to advertise the business and high quality services offered. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a small advertising campaign to promote the business. A new owner could also increase the opening hours of the business and perhaps open on Sundays. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular and well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
