Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market HBP Motors. The business was originally established in Coventry over 24 years ago, our client then took over 16 years ago, but has worked at the business since it first opened. Our client has a great knowledge of the trade and has created a great business opportunity. The owner is now looking to sell the garage, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The garage offers class 4 MOT’s, repairs and services as well as specialising in air conditioning, clutches, exhausts, suspension and vehicle diagnostics. This is a well-established garage that benefits from an enviable repeat client list; this will be included in the sale.
The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £158,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 41%. This is a healthy turnover that we feel could be increased by taking on more staff, this will allow for more work, therefore more income.
The garage has a great website www.hbpmotors.co.uk this has a full list of services available and customers can also book vehicles in for repair. The website is included in the sale.
The garage has two courtesy cars available, this a great service that most competition does not offer. This is an outstanding garage that provides a professional service that is recognised in Coventry, this business thrives off word of mouth recommendations.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
HBP Motors is located in Coventry, West Midlands.
The garage is situated on an industrial estate just off a main road. There is a variety of complimentary business on this estate, this brings in a large amount of footfall. Just off the estate is an abundance of residential property; from which the business derives much of its trade. There is generous parking in the area, the property also comes with a plethora of secured parking spaces.
Coventry is a city that has all amenities, there is also a generous amount of infrastructure. There are several bus stops located in the area and the closest train station is just a 10 minute drive away. The A444 is a major A-road in the city, this heads from the centre of Coventry and heads up to Stapenhill.
