Business Description
BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular vehicle maintenance business, which is ideally located within the town of Northampton.

The business was established by our client in 1990 and has been run, together with his son, very successfully. 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 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £120,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.

The garage specialises in car body work, resprays and accident damage repairs, as well as providing a wide range of general auto services, such as MoT’s, servicing, diagnostics, air conditioning system services and tyre fitting. Our client has a very skilled team, which are very experienced and can undertake servicing and repairs on all makes and models of car and light commercial vehicles.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the services 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 extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening longer on Saturdays. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. The business already has a website in place to promote the business at www.amsautocare.co.uk.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy and thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

LOCATION
