Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Motorvation (Northampton) Ltd.  This thriving fully equipped garage and MOT station was originally founded by our client over 35 years ago and reluctantly the business comes to the market as our client looks towards retirement.

The business reports a phenomenal turnover of £446,333 with a gross profit at circa 68%.  The business operates from a secure site with two purpose fitted workshops.  The first specialises in service and repairs to class 4 vehicles.  The second is a well-appointed MOT station testing classes 1, 2, 3 and 4 vehicles.  All work is of a very high standard and undertaken by the skilled and loyal workforce.

Motorvation (Northampton) Ltd has an excellent reputation and is very well known in the area, being extremely well supported by local residents and businesses, seeing much repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.  We believe the business has the potential to reach new customers, perhaps with a modest marketing campaign or extending opening hours to cover weekend trade.  The business already has a user friendly website in situ giving further information about the services offered.

We highly recommend early viewing of this clearly sustainable and profitable concern. There is ample scope to improve this business by way of advertising and extending the opening hours as the business currently operates with reduced opening hours and little marketing.

The business is located on the outskirts of the University town of Northampton.

Motorvation (Northampton) Ltd is located within a well-known and large industrial/commercial area, although close to many residential dwellings from which the business derives much trade.  The business is very accessible being served by several arterial and commuter roads to and from the town. (A508, A5076 and A4500).
